Portobello veggie burgers

These burgers are by far the best burgers I have made yet. They are really filling and flavoursome. 

1 can of black beans


1t stock powder


1 garlic clove, finely chopped


1 red onions, finely chopped


2T ground flax seed


1/2c cooked rice


1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


½ tablespoon cumin seeds, toasted and ground


1/2 tablespoon coriander seeds, toasted and ground


Half a handful of each - flat parsley, coriander, mint


½T of yeast extract (or Marmite/Vegemite)


Salt to taste


4 portobello mushrooms


2T tamari


2T water


1t hot smoked paprika

2 large ripe tomatoes

Baby spinach

Set your oven to 200c.

Drain and rinse the beans very well, put them into a large bowl.

Add the stock powder, garlic, red onion, flax, rice, sesame seeds, spices, herbs, yeast extract and a little salt.

Using a hand blender or food processor blend until smooth.

You can make the patties one of two ways, mould them with your hands or roll out between 2 sheets of baking paper and cut out shapes with a glass.

Bake in the oven for around 30 minutes.

Remove the stems from the mushrooms carefully, so the caps don't break.

Put the mushrooms in a large bowl with the tamari, water and paprika. Turn the mushrooms over and around so that they are covered with the sauce.

Bake the mushrooms in the oven for 15 minutes.

Slice the tomatoes, put the spinach on your plate, assemble the burgers with the tomatoes and enjoy!!!!
