Black bean burger with caraway

Beans are a source of protein and therefore excellent meat substitutes. The form you give this is up to you. In this case, we offer you inspiration in the form of a hamburger flavoured with caraway. Endless variations on this are possible, of course, as is the case with minced meat.

Preparation method

  • Fry the chopped shallot in a little oil until it becomes translucent. Add the garlic and fry briefly. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool.
  • Put three quarters of the beans in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Scoop the bean mixture into a bowl and mix with the other beans and the fried shallot.
  • Rub the caraway seeds with a pestle and mortar to form a coarse powder, and add this to the beans.
  • Beat the eggs and stir them into the bean mixture.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the breadcrumbs and kneed together well.
  • Weigh out portions of 85 grams (the weight of an average beef burger) and shape into burgers.
  • Fry the hamburgers in oil or clarified butter until brown. 

Serving suggestions

  • As a meat substitute on a hamburger with, for example, confit shallot, cheddar cheese, and tomato.
  • Shape the bean mixture into balls or sausages to create a different look.
