  • 1 cup - dried black beans, soaked for a few hours and cooked until tender, then drained (you can skip the soaking if you use a pressure cooker). Substitute, if you like, with 2.5 cups - of canned black beans, drained.
  • 1 cup - Garbanzo Bean flour or Chickpea flour or besan
  • 1/2 cup - rolled or instant Oats
  • 1/2 cup - cooked brown Rice
  • 1/2 cup - Walnuts
  • 1/4 cup - frozen Corn kernels
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp - Red Chilli powder (reduce, for less heat, or substitute with 1 chipotle chilli in adobo sauce)
  • 1/2 cup - minced savory herbs (like sage, marjoram, Oregano or thyme)
  • 2 tsp - Garam Masala
  • Salt to taste
  • How to Make Fat-free Black Bean Burgers:

    1. Put all the ingredients into a food processor, and process until they become grainy but ensure they are still textured.
    2. Heat a cast-iron or non-stick skillet and spray lightly with oil.
    3. Form two-inch discs with the burger batter and drop them into the skillet.
    4. The batter will be a little runnier than you'd expect, but it will set and form into firm patties as the burger cooks.
    5. Flip over when the underside is golden-brown, and cook on the other side about 3-4 minutes.
    6. Serve hot with salsa, guacamole, and atop a delicious roll.
