Dried oregano 1 tsp
Smoked paprika 1/2 tsp
Ground cumin 1/2 tsp
Tomato paste 1 1/2 tbsp
Soy sauce or tamari 1 1/2 tbsp

Black pepper, to taste  
   
Extras:  
Neutral cooking oil, for frying 2-3 tbsp

INSTRUCTIONS

1. To make the patties, place the beans in a large bowl and mash with a potato masher or large fork until mostly broken up with a few bigger pieces. Add the brown rice and mash a bit more, until the rice has broken up.

2. Add all the rest of the patty ingredients and mix well. The mixture will seem dry at first but will come together. Form into 4 patties.

3. Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Cook the patties for 3-4 minutes on one side, until browned and crispy. Flip the burgers and fry for a further 3-4 minutes.

4. Toast the burger buns on a lightly oiled pan. Top with mashed avocado, lettuce, black bean patty, tomato, red onion, mayo/ketchup (if using) and the top of the burger bun. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

This recipe makes 4 burgers.
