Fleshy moist Beetroot Haricot Bean Burgers with fragrant coriander, cumin, fennel, garlic, ginger and lemon.

Ravage your loins with something meaty. And, bite.

This dish will obliterate your belief that vegan food can’t be an easy substitute for non-vegan.

Make this:

  • When it’s blistering outside. You have a bbq to organise and scratching your head. These Burgers will hit the nail. And, will have them gushing for more
  • When you’ve got a family of hungry mouths too feed. A dish that’ll be light on your pockets. And, full in the stomach is what you need
  • When you fancy a little comfort eating. And, a dish that’ll have you satiated and nourished

Beetroot Haricot Bean Burgers were inspired because I wanted to create burgers that looked fleshy and yet were equally nourishing. Beetroots give that colour and yet with mixed in with the spices give that meaty hearty taste.

These Bean Burgers are vegan and gluten-free.

What equipment to use

For this recipe, I suggest:

Food processor

Air fryer/BBQ
