Both white or brown teff flour work equally well in this recipe. The patties can be made ahead and kept in the fridge until ready to cook and plate.


1 tsp olive oil

½ large white onion, finely diced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

160g mushrooms, finely diced

1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed

50g Lovegrass white teff flour

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1 tbsp soy sauce

½ tsp harissa paste

1 tbsp olive oil

Gluten-free burger buns

Spicy mayonnaise


Sliced tomatoes




Step 1

In a saucepan on medium heat, add oil and sauté the onion for 5 minutes until it starts to turn translucent. Next, add the garlic and diced mushrooms and cook for further 5 minutes.


Step 2

In a food processor, add the drained and rinsed beans and pulse until large crumbs form. Empty into a large bowl.


Step 3

Add the onion and mushroom mix to the bowl, along with the teff flour, paprika, Italian seasoning, soy sauce and harissa paste.


Step 4

Mix everything together well and then form into 4 patties. Place them in a lined baking tray and put in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.


Step 5

When ready to cook, heat a large pan on medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil.


Step 6

Add the burger patties and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side ensuring they don’t burn.


Step 7

Load up the patties on to the burger buns, add the spicy mayo, lettuce, sliced tomatoes and gherkins. Enjoy!
