BBQ Black Bean Burger (from Gaz Oakley)

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 spring onions
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms
  • 120g chickpeas
  • 120g black beans
  • 2 tbsp shelled hemp seeds
  • 2 handfuls fresh coriander
  • 2 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • 30g buckwheat flour
  • 2 vegan brioche buns
  • 10g cress
  • 2 handfuls lettuce
  • 1 tomato
  • 50g crispy onions
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. 
  2. Add spring onion, red pepper and mushroom to a blender, then blitz the mixture until everything is finely chopped.
  3. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan over a low heat, add a little oil, then when the pan is hot add the chopped red pepper mix. Sauté everything for two to three minutes or until softened.
  4. Meanwhile, put the chickpeas and black beans into a mixing bowl and give them a pat dry with kitchen paper as best as you can.
  5. Add the chickpeas and beans to the blender with the sautéed red pepper mixture, hemp seeds, coriander, barbecue sauce, lime and seasoning.
  6. Pulse the blender no more than three times – if you over-blend the mix you will turn it into a purée, resulting in a mushy burger.
  7. Once pulsed, put the mixture into a mixing bowl and add the flour. Using your hands lightly, work the mixture together. Again, if you over mix you’re going to have a mushy burger, so gently work it together.
  8. Add a little more flour if your mix feels too wet. If not, go ahead and form the mixture into patties. Lightly flour your hands to form the burgers.
  9. Once you’ve formed your burgers, place them onto the lined baking tray. You can bake them straight away, but I like to get them golden in a pan first. Add a touch of oil to a non-stick pan placed over a medium heat and fry the burgers on each side for two to three minutes.
  10. Once coloured, place the burgers onto the tray, then place the tray into the oven for 15 minutes.
  11. Prepare your garnishes while the burgers are in the oven. I serve my burgers in a toasted bun with lettuce, cress, tomatoes, extra barbecue sauce and crispy onions.

Roasted Cauliflower and Tempeh Tacos (from What Luce Eats)

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 50g tempeh
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 420g cauliflower
  • 6 taco shells
  • 1 avocado
  • ¼ red cabbage
  • 2 handfuls fresh coriander
  • 4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 green chilli
  • 30g dairy-free cheese

Method:

  1. Start by marinating your tempeh by combining all of the spices and oil. Save half of the paprika for the cauliflower. Add tempeh pieces and coat evenly. Place in the fridge, ideally overnight, but you can just cook straight away if time is limited. 
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C, and line two baking trays. Season cauliflower florets with paprika and a drizzle of oil, before scattering on one of the baking trays. Scatter tempeh cubes on the other, and place both trays in oven to bake for 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mash the avocados, and add salt and juice from the lemon.
  4. Load tacos by smothering with the smashed avocado, then cauliflower and tempeh pieces.
  5. Add some sliced red cabbage, and crumble cheese on top.
  6. Season with chilli flakes, sliced green chilli and fresh coriander.
