Vegan Mexican burger recipe | Veg Mex inspired

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free

Learn how to make delicious Mexican inspired burgers which are packed full of flavour, nutrients and protein.

The Veg Mex from Handmade Burger Co is my favourite burger ever. I hardly ever eat burgers but I can never resist a Veg Mex!
 It's a vegan Mexican burger served with lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and guacamole! 
I took it upon myself to recreate this delicious burger!!! 

I've made a yummy pinto bean, mixed quinoa burger served with homemade guacamole, fresh green jalapenos, tomato, lettuce, red onion, Mexican spiced salsa, all in a seeded bun! YUM :)
They're super quick & easy to make and taste restaurant worthy!
These burgers are perfect for a healthy, filling lunch or dinner and would be ideal at a BBQ or event. I'm sure everyone will love them & want more!

Ingredients for the burgers
-175g of pinto beans (Washed & drained)
-250g of cooked quinoa (I used mixed red & white)

-2 teaspoons of onion granules
-1 & 1/4 teaspoons of garlic granules

Step 2- Place the pinto beans into a bowl and mash.
Step 3- Add in the cooked quinoa, tomato paste, onion granules, garlic granules, chilli flakes, salt and mix until fully combined.
Step 4- Form into patties and roll into the breadcrumbs to cover each pattie, then place them onto the lined tray.
Step 5- Pop the burgers into the oven for 18-20 minutes.
Turn them over half way to get an even golden colour.

Step 7- Place lettuce leaves on the bun, add on the burger, then guacamole, jalapenos, tomato slices, onion, salsa and finish with the bun.
