Serves 3


400gm can four bean mix (drained and washed)
1 cup of raw grated sweet potato
1 small red onion grated
½ tsp quality salt flakes
2 tbsp bread crumbs
¼ cup of chopped walnuts
1 cup panko bread crumbs (for crumbing)
2-4 tbsp of oil for frying

Sweet Chilli Sauce

1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
3 tbsp of vegan mayonnaise


1 sourdough loaf or bread of your choice
Lettuce, tomato, carrot
1 fresh whole garlic clove peeled to rub on your bread (optional)


Grab a plate or dish with a slight lip on it and put your coating panko bread crumbs in the dish, getting it ready for crumbing.

Using a stick blender or your food processor to blend your beans, sweet potato and onion until its a paste (should take about 90sec!)

Add in your salt. chopped walnuts and 2tbsp of bread crumbs. Mix well.

You will find your mix a little mushier then a normal meat patties.

Divide the mix into three equal parts and roll into a large ball.

Place the ball in the palm of your hand which is cupped around the patty and slightly flatten down.

You will have quite a thick round patty with a flat top for frying.

Now coat in with your bread crumbs.

Set in the fridge for 30min.

Sweet Chilli Mayo

Get a small bowl and pop your mayonnaise and sweet chilli sauce and mix together. Set aside in the fridge.

Frying the Patties

Grab a large fry pan and heat your pan and 1-2 tbsp of the oil on a medium high heat. 

Pop your burger patties in and cook until golden brown on one side and turn over to the other side, turning the heat down to a medium/low. 

Once your second side is cooked use a egg flipper to gently  take them out and drain them on a paper towel.

Preparing the Bread

Now slice up your sough dough, lightly toast and rub a peeled fresh garlic clove over the bread. 

Releasing some oils and giving your bread a yummy garlicky subtle aroma and taste.

Putting it all Together

Lay your first piece of bread down and layer with mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato and carrot.  

Now put your burger patty on and top with a little sweet chilli sauce to finish it off.

Top with your second piece of sough dough to make your wicked burger which is technically a sandwich! Serve on its on or some home made crinkle cut chips with a bit of extra sweet chilli mayo on the side.
