Print Recipe
Serves: Makes 6 burgers Cooking Time: 40 mins


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 400g tin of black beans
  • 90g red lentils
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons sundried tomato mince
  • 30g quinoa flour
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed)
  • pink himalayan salt to taste



Cut up sweet potato into chunks and boil in water until soft, drain and mash


Rinse your lentils until water comes out clear and boil for about 15 mins


Drizzle a tiny bit of extra virgin olive oil into a pan and gently fry the garlic until it starts to brown, add the black beans, oregano and cayenne pepper and gently heat whilst mashing the beans with the back of a wooden spoon


In a mixing bowl, mix all ingredients by hand until mixture is firm and let it cool (be sure to strain the lentils properly to remove all water)


Line an oven tray with baking paper and form the mixture into patties


Bake for about 15 minutes at 180 degrees each side (or until top side starts to brown and then flip)


You can eat the patties with any side that you prefer, I opted for a wholegrain, multi seed bun and topped it with some baby spinach, tomatoes and a drizzle of Tahini.
