  1. 1 red pepper, roughly chopped
  2. 30g sun-dried tomatoes
  3. 1/2 cup cashews
  4. 3 tbsp goji berries
  5. 28g of fresh coriander
  6. 2 tbsp lime juice
  7. 2 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  8. 1/2 cup of quick cook oats or gram flour or gluten-free oats
  9. 2 tbsp protein powder (I use either the Soya or Pea protein varieties)
  10. 1 medium red onion, roughly chopped
  11. 3 plump cloves of garlic
  12. 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  13. 1 x 400g can of black beans, drained
  14. 2 1/2 tbsp tamari
  15. 2 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
  16. 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  17. 1 tbsp milled chia seeds


  • If baking the burgers, preheat the oven to 160ºC (350ºF) and grease a baking sheet with a little spray coconut oil
  • Put the red pepper, red onion chunks, garlic cloves and sun-dried tomatoes in a blender or food processor. Whizz to combine
  • Tip out the tomato and pepper contents into a large mixing bowl
  • Place the cashews, pumpkin seeds, goji berries into a blender or food processor along with the spices and whizz to form a grainy texture (allow for some gritty bits to add texture to the burgers)
  • Tip into the bowl containing the tomato-pepper mixture
  • Put the drained black beans, fresh coriander, tamari, lime juice, chilli flakes, cumin and coriander into the blender or food processor and whizz to form a paste
  • Add to the bowl containing the chopped tomatoes, peppers and onions. Add the oats or gram flour, milled chia seeds and protein powder. Mix well together. Season well
  • Using your hands, form the mixture into 6 burger patties. Place patties on the baking sheet
  • Bake for 25 mins. Alternatively, you can pan-fry the burgers for 13-15 mins (flipping over half way through)
