Experimenting with Homemade Veggie Burgers: Trial 3


I’m back with another Vegetarian burger recipe/ inspiration: the Mexican burger:

DSCF1294I served this with sweet potato fries (my new addiction), avocado and a side salad and featured it as a favourite meal in my second favourite experiments of the week post.

Ingredients (to make 4 burgers):

  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 of a large can of black beans
  • A handful of spinach
  • 1 small/ half a red onion diced
  • 2 carrots
  • Chilli Powder

Boil the carrots and sautee the spinach and red onion. Then use a potato masher to mash together all of the ingredients together so you end up with something like this:




Add a beaten egg to the mixture to allow the burgers to hold their shape better (and of course for extra protein). Now, as always, divide the mixture into small patties for either storing in the fridge if they will be cooked in the near future, the freezer or for cooking immediately.

DSCF1284Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes on 200 degrees celcius and serve, my personal serving suggestion shown at the beginning of this post.
