Servings: 5 burgers


  • 1 tin black beans or kidney beans drained thoroughly and patted dry
  • 1/2 tin chickpeas drained thoroughly and patted dry
  • 1 handful fresh coriander chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp each ground cumin, garlic powder, chilli powder, salt
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 4 tbsp plain flour (for GF use gluten free plain flour)
  • 3 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 medium beetroot removed from liquid if packaged and diced
  • 1/2 medium red onion finely diced


  • Blitz the beans, chickpeas, coriander, oil, paprika, cumin, garlic, chilli, salt, liquid smoke, onion powder and flour in a food processor until you get desired consistency (or you can mash).
  • Stir in the tomato puree, diced onion and diced beetroot and form into burger shapes (around 1.5 - 2cm thick).
  • Place in fridge for around half an hour to firm up.
  • For best results, brush with a little oil or brush the griddle with a little oil so they don't stick and griddle on BBQ for 10 minutes turning regularly.
  • Alternatively you can fry for 5 minutes on each side.
