  • 1 tablespoon Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 can Black Beans washed and drained
  • 1/2 Red Onion roughly chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chilli Flakes
  • 50 grams Breadcrumbs you may not need them all
  • 1 tablespoon Sunflower Oil
  • Toppings of choice


  • Prepare the flax egg by mixing 1 tbsp ground flax seeds with 2.5 tbsp water. Add to a blender along with the onion, garlic, and half the black beans. Blend until smooth. (If you need to add a little water to help it blend, that is fine)
  • Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and add the remaining beans as well as the spices. Mix to combine. 
  • Gradually add in the breadcrumbs until the mixture comes together. Divide the mixture into 4 and shape into patties.
  • Cook the patties in an oiled pan over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes on each side. You are aiming for a golden brown colour and for the burgers to be heated through.
  • Serve immediately with your choice of Toppings.


  • I like to make extra burgers to store in the fridge and bring for lunch the next day. They go great in wraps with a little hummus!
