  • Sharp knife
  • Chopping board
  • Weighing scales (ideally digital)
  • Frying pan
  • wooden spoon
  • Food processor
  • baking paper
  • baking tray


  • 50 g cashews soaked in hot water for 20 minutes
  • 4 tablespoons chickpea gram flour
  • 4 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 200 g mushrooms chopped
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 125 g cooked brown rice
  • 240 g cooked aduki beans 1 standard UK tin, or use black beans or kidney beans
  • 100 g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper


  • Soak 50g cashew nuts in hot water for 20 minutes. Drain.
  • Mix 4 tablespoons of chickpea flour with 4 tablespoons of cold water. Stir well with a small whisk or fork while pouring in the water to avoid lumps.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a frying pan. When hot add the chopped onion and stir fry over a low heat for 10-15 minutes until soft and golden brown.
  • Add 2 cloves of chopped garlic, stir and fry for 1-2 minutes.
  • Next add 200g chopped mushrooms. Stir well and fry for 10 minutes until soft. The mushrooms will release a lot of water when cooking but this will evaporate so keep going.
  • Once the mushrooms are cooked add a tablespoon miso paste. Stir until broken down and well mixed.
  • Now add a teaspoon of smoked paprika, a teaspoon mixed herbs and a tablespoon nutritional yeast. Stir well then remove from the heat.
  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (fan)/200°C/gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with non stick baking paper.
  • Transfer the mushroom mixture to your food processor and add 125g cooked brown rice, the drained cashew nuts, 240g beans and 100g wholemeal breadcrumbs.
  • Process until smooth, stopping once or twice to scrape the sides down.
  • Mix through the chickpea flour mixture and season with salt and pepper.
  • Lightly oil your hands and form the mixture into six burger patties.
  • Place on the prepared baking tray and flatten down.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then use a spatula to carefully turn over and bake for a further 10 minutes.
  • Serve in buns with your favourite sides.
