My whole family enjoy these (and even the meat eaters!) They are especially tasty topped with grilled halloumu, avocado and some salsa. This is one of the recipes from my Reboot Challenge programme starting today:


  • 1tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  •  1 x 400g tin black beans, rinsed and drained
  •  1tsp grated lime zest
  • 3/4tsp chili powder
  •  1/2tsp chopped fresh oregano
  •  pinch salt  
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 slice gluten free or wholegrain bread
  • large lettuce leaves



1. Place bread slice in a food processor and pulse into crumbs – transfer to a bowl. Combine 1tsp oil, garlic, and beans in processor; pulse until beans make athick paste

2. Scrape bean mixture into bowl with breadcrumbs and stir in lime zest and remaining ingredients

3. With moistened hands, divide bean mixture into4 equal portions, shaping each into a 3-inch burger

4. Heat remaining oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat

5.  Add burgers to pan; reduce heat to medium, and cook 4 minutes or until bottom edges are browned or alternatively just lightly brown in pan on both sides and then transfer to the oven for 5-10 minutes

6. Carefully turn over; cook 3 minutes or until bottom edges are done

7. Serve burgers, stacked with slices of tomato, avocado, onion and your sauce & salad
