Preparation

1

Prepare & bake the fries: Wash and rinse all produce. Preheat the oven to 430F. Peel the potatoes and cut in fries shape, about 1 cm thick. Place the fries on a lined baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, season with salt & pepper. Bake about 20 minutes.

2

Prepare & cook the vegetables: Peel and shred the beets, finely cut the onion. Using a strainer, rinse the black beans. 

In an oiled pan, cook the onion and the beets on medium heat for 5 minutes, or until the onion is tender.

Remove the pan from the heat and let the vegetables cool. 

3

Make the patty mixture: In a medium bowl, add the black beans. Mash them with a fork. Add the cooked vegetables, and chickpea flour mix. Season with salt & pepper. Combine.

4

Form & cook the patties: Using the mixture, form 1 patty per portion. Rinse and dry the pan. Oil the pan and cook the patties on medium heat 6-7 minutes per side.

5

Prepare the toppings & warm up the buns: Slice the tomato. Separate the cilantro leaves.

Cut the ciabatta buns in 2 and place them on a baking sheet, cut side down. Heat the buns in the oven for 1-2 minutes or until toasted.
