Before you start

Large frying pan | Frying pan or baking paper lined roasting tray

Prepare the vegetables

  • Peel and dice the onions and garlic
  • Cut the mushrooms into very small pieces, about the size of a pea

Start the burger patties

  • Place a large pan over a medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil
  • Once warm, add the chopped onion, garlic and a pinch of salt
  • Mix well and cook for 5-10 minutes until the onion becomes soft
  • Once the onion feels soft, add the smoked paprika and mix through
  • Cook for another minute before adding the chopped mushrooms
  • Mix everything together well and leave to cook for another 10 minutes, or until the mushrooms reduce in size and become soft
  • At this point, stir through the drained black beans and leave to cook for 5 minutes
  • Mix through the flour and miso paste and cook for a final 10 minutes
  • Crush the ingredients with a fork to bind the mixture together and mix well before leaving the mixture to one side to cool down a little

Shape the patties

  • Once the mixture feels firm enough to shape into patties, use your hands to shape 6 patties
  • You can either cook them straight away or cover them and leave them in the fridge until needed

Cook the patties

  • Once ready to serve, heat a large pan over a medium heat
  • Add a drizzle of olive oil
  • Once warm, add the burgers and cook on each side for 5-6 minutes until charred
  • You can also place them in an oven at 180˚C, fan setting for 10-15 minutes to cook through

Serve the burgers

  • Halve the burger buns and toast in the pan
  • Roughly slice the lettuce
  • Serve the burgers in buns piled high with kimchi, lettuce and Sriracha mayonnaise
