  • 1 red pepper, roughly chopped
  • 30g sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 3 tbsp goji berries
  • 28g of fresh coriander
  • 2 tbsp lime juice

...

  • 1 medium red onion, roughly chopped

These black bean burgers are delicious! Plus they are perfect for the health conscious, vegans, those following a gluten-free diet or high protein low carb diets.

There is spice from chilli, coriander & cumin, texture from goji berries, seeds & nuts, fragrance from garlic, red onion & seeds, freshness from fresh herbs & salty sweetness from succulent sun-dried tomatoes. To make these burgers even more nutrient dense, So has added goji berries, ground flaxseed, chia seeds & protein powder (I use either our Soya or Pea protein).

  3. Tip out the tomato and pepper contents into a large mixing bowl
