  • 2 tablespoons oil (olive, vegetable, rapeseed or coconut)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 400 g (14oz) tin of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 70 g (2.5oz) mushrooms, roughly chopped (I used chestnut/button mushrooms)
  • 50 g (1/2 cup) walnuts
  • Salt + pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon tamari (optional - or soy sauce if not gluten-free)

To serve:


  • Heat up 1 tablespoon of the oil and add the onion and garlic once hot
  • Fry for around 10 minutes until softened
  • Meanwhile, place the black beans in a food processor or blender (or hand-held stick blender) and whizz until completely smooth
  • Now add the cooked onion and garlic, along with the mushrooms, walnuts and salt + pepper (and nutritional yeast and tamari if using)
  • Blend very briefly so that the mushrooms and walnuts are cut up into smaller pieces, but still retain a little texture
  • Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary
  • Divide the burger mixture into two and use your hands to shape into two patties
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and place the burgers in the pan once hot
  • Cook on a medium heat for around 7 minutes, then use a spatula to ‚Ä®carefully turn them over
  • Cook for a further 7 minutes on the other side, until slightly browned on both sides
  • Serve in burger buns with desired salad ingredients and sauces
