2. ¾ can Black Beans – 255Cals
3. ½ cup Onion, diced – 32Cals
4. 1 Garlic Clove, minced – 4Cals

2. Add in the chopped mushrooms, green onions and cumin. Saute for another 5 minutes, or until mushrooms are cooked through. Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool down.
3. In a bowl, roughly mash the black beans. I like to keep it chunky.
4. Then combine the mashed beans with the onion and mushroom mixture and flavor it with salt and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
5. Using your hands, shape the mixture into 4 equal patties, about ¾ to one inch thick.
6. On a non-stick pan, heat 1 tbsp. oil under medium-high heat. Cook the patties on both sides until they are slightly brown and crunchy, for about 5 minutes.

3) TOFU CHIA BURGER
Ingredients (4 Patties)
1. 1 block (250g) Extra Firm Tofu – 220Cals
2. ½ cup Onion, diced – 32Cals
3. 1 tbsp. Green Onions, roughly chopped – 2Cals

Steps:
1. Blend the tofu along with all the rest of the ingredients; onions, green onions, garlic, salt and pepper, chia mixture and soy sauce. Blend until you form a tofu paste. The chia mixture binds the tofu mixture together.
2. Next, gently form the tofu mixture into patties, pressing everything together to form round patties about ¾ to 1-inch thick. This will make you about 4 patties.
3. Lightly pan-fry the patties until lightly golden brown and crisp for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side.
4. Remove from heat and set aside.

  1. Delish Joanna! I'd recommend putting the mixture for these in the fridge for an hour, as they can be prone to fall apart when cooking.

  2. A tip for anyone like me- who never finishes a bulb of garlic. Buy garlic infused oil, you get the garlic taste and it lasts much longer in the cupboard that a bulb of garlic (you can get it in Aldi and Tesco in Ireland and UK for about €3.95, probably other supermarkets also).
