Spicy Clean Bean Burger

This week my clean eating has gone very well (I've managed to stick to it 100% for the 1st time in ages!) so I wanted to share one of my favourite meals from the week. Gordon fancied a big juicy burger so I rustled up these vegetablarian-friendly, spicy bean babies. I googled some recipes, but couldn't find one in particular that I liked so just kind of picked bits and pieces from a few and made it up as I went along.


You will need: 2 Tins organic black beans
                        2 Spring onions (chopped)
                        1 Egg
                        100g Breadcrumbs (made from rye bread)
                        1 Tablespoon salsa (preferably homemade!)
                        2 Teaspoons Cajun seasoning


Empty the beans into a large mixing bowl and squish into a big black mess with a tattie potato masher. Once they're as mashed as possible, chuck the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and mix together...


Then for the messy part - use your (clean) hands to roll your mixture into patty shapes. I managed to make 5 big chunky beasts out of it. Place them on a lined baking tray (I covered mine in flour as well just to stop the burgers from sticking) and cook in a pre-heated oven (around 190 degrees Celsius) for about 20 minutes. Your burgers should be fairly crispy and browned on the outside but will probably stay soft and mushy inside.


Et voila! I served mine in a bun with spinach, tomato and Portobello mushrooms, topped it with extra salsa and popped some homemade sweet potato fries on the side. Perfect!


Would anybody be interested in seeing more of my clean recipes?
