I enjoy discovering new channels on Youtube with recipes, thoughts and ideas on plant based eating. At the end of last year I discovered Brian Turner. Yes, he is handsome and ripped, and his approach to eating is to complement his fitness regime, but his recipes are simple and nutritious, and definitely worth a look. He’s been incredibly honest about his battle with acne too, which has helped a lot of people. This is his channel https://www.youtube.com/user/HumerusFitness/featured
Today, I’m sharing his recipe for bean burgers.
Brian Turner’s Bean Burgers
Sauté in a pan:
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic
6-10 oz (170-280g) mushrooms
(You could soften these without oil if you wish, add a tiny drop of water if it begins to stick)
In food processor, blend 1½ cups of oats.
Add mixture from the pan.
Rinse 30 oz of beans from a tin (½ black, ½ pinto) and add.
(If you’re struggling to get pinto beans, buy a cheap tin of baked beans, tip into a seive and rinse off all the sauce. If you’re struggling to get black beans, use any beans!)
Add ½ cup of barbeque sauce
Dollop scoops onto two lined baking sheets and bake in hot oven for 40 minutes.
(We have no working oven at the moment, so these can be cooked in a frying pan if necessary)
I make my own barbeque sauce, but you could buy it ready made if you like:
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons tomato purée
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of tamari (or if you can manage wheat, you can use ordinary soy sauce)
These freeze really well, so they’re perfect for lunch or dinner.
I know you’ll enjoy this recipe, so pop back for more, and some tips about cooking beans and legumes from dried, at this time when we’re relying on staples from our pantries. Have a wonderful weekend…stay home, stay safe xx
Thanks for sharing the recipe. I have tins of chickpeas and Four Bean Mix, I wonder if they will do, also have plenty of lentils.
No problem. It’s the barbeque sauce that gives these burgers so much flavour, so I’m sure other pulses and legumes will be fine. I’m testing a lentil burger at the moment too…I only post when I’ve tried a recipe a few times and tried freezing it….there’s nothing worse than trying a recipe and being disappointed! Thanks so much for commenting, stay safe xx
Thank you. Good luck with the lentil burger. I recently had packaged shop bought lentil and vegetable burgers, surprisingly quite nice. I much prefer homemade.
Happy Easter. Stay safe and well.
They sound delicious!I’m wheat free too, so am always wary of shop bought burgers, and I’m keen to be as ‘whole food’ as I can be. Hope you enjoyed the sunshine over the weekend, bright blessings:-)
Looks delicious! Will definitely add this recipe to my notes.
