Flavourless burgers are a thing of the past with these Caribbean-inspired Jerk Black Bean Burgers! They're packed full of flavour without needing a whole cupboard of different herbs and spices, thanks to the Schwartz Caribbean Jerk Street Food Seasoning.
  • 2x400 grams (14 ounces) tins of black beans, drained, rinsed and patted dry

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 red pepper, finely chopped

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 1 sachet Caribbean Jerk Seasoning

  • 50 grams (2 ounces) breadcrumbs

  • 50 grams (2 ounces) Feta cheese, crumbled

  • 2 medium eggs

  • 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup

  • 8 burger buns

  • 100 grams (4 ounces) mayonnaise

  • 50 grams (2 ounces) rocket

  • 2 avocados, sliced

  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced

  • 16 gherkin slices


  • 1 Preheat the oven to 180°C, 350°F Gas Mark 4.
  • 2 Spread the black beans evenly on a lined baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes until slightly dried out.
  • 3 Place a frying pan on a medium heat and add the olive oil. Fry the pepper, onion and garlic for 5 minutes or until soft.
  • 4 In a large bowl, add the cooked pepper, onion, garlic, Caribbean Jerk Seasoning, breadcrumbs, feta cheese, eggs, tomato ketchup, and seasoning. Combine everything well and then mash in the baked black beans using a fork or potato masher.
