2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground paprika

Method

To make the burgers:
1

Heat oven to 200C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.

2

Place all ingredients except the black beans in a food processor and blitz to combine. If you don’t have a food processor, simply finely chop the onion and then use a potato masher to
mash all the ingredients together.

3

Once these ingredients are combined stir black beans through. Shape firmly into 4 burger patties, place on tray and then bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Whilst burgers are baking make the onion rings.

To make the cumin spiced onion rings:
4

Whisk the eggs in one bowl and mix together the cumin and almond meal in a separate bowl. Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.

5

Dip the onion ring in the egg then into the almond meal to coat. Place on tray and repeat with all rings.

6

Place in the oven to bake for 10 minutes (half way through the burgers cooking). Whilst the burgers and onion rings cook, make the sauce and slaw.

To make the curry burger sauce:
7

Combine all ingredients in bowl, whisk together and set aside ready to dollop on the
burger.

To make the slaw:
8

Toss together red cabbage, coriander, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and season with
sea salt and black pepper. Toss and set aside ready to build the burger.

Go for it! Start with the slaw at the base of your bun or lettuce leaves, followed by the
sweet potato burger, curry burger sauce, cumin spiced onion rings and bit of coriander if
you like to finish. Pop the burger bun top or more lettuce leaves on top and enjoy!
