  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder or 1 clove of fresh garlic
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • 2 tsp chili paste
  • ½ cup of flour (plain, oat, buckwheat)
  • To serve:
  • Tropical Chutney
  • Burger buns
  • Onion
  • Cos lettuce
  • Secret Sauce:
  • 3 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp whiskey or rum
  • Step 1 Mix all the ingredients except the flour in a food processor.
  • Step 2 Add the mixture to a mixing bowl and add the flour. Now knead and make the mixture into patties. Add more flour if the mixture is too wet.
  • Step 3 Heat a cast iron pan and bake the burger patties for about 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Leave them for 1-2 minutes on each side on low heat to warm up a bit more.
  • Step 4 In the meanwhile, whisk up the secret sauce and grill your buns. Assemble your burgers by using a tropical chutney as base (mine is store-bought but you can also make one yourself, I will add a recipe soon). Add the lettuce, patty and onion, and add some of my secret sauce.
  • Step 5 Enjoy!
  • Step 6 PS my chutney contained the following ingredients: tomato, pineapple, red capsicum, carrot, brown vinegar, white sugar, cranberries, ginger, gluten free cornflour, mountain pepper, bush tomato, spices and salt.
