  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 2 eggs (use 'flax' eggs to make vegan. One flax egg = 1 tbsp flax seeds mixed with 3 tbsp hot water and stirred)
  • 1 can black beans (1 regular can = 15oz = 425g)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ medium red onion
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • ½ cup dried breadcrumbs


  • Rinse and drain the black beans. Place in a large mixing bowl and blend with a hand blender. Alternatively, crush the beans with a fork/masher.
  • Dice the red onion and sundried tomatoes and add to the bowl.
  • Next, add the oats, eggs, salt, cumin, paprika, olive oil. Give it a good stir.
  • Finally, add the breadcrumbs a little at a time until you’re left with a nice, firm mixture. If you don’t need to use all the breadcrumbs, that’s totally fine.
  • Mould the mixture into burger patties. Wet your hands if it's too sticky.
  • Fry in a little oil in a pan, or place on a BBQ/grill. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side, turning occasionally. Serve with your favourite burger ingredients - a bun, lettuce, tomato, cheese - whatever you fancy!


Need some dips to take with you? How about some homemade salsa? Or what about fajita seasoning (tip) - throw some in the burger mix for even more taste!
