Bake the fries: Wash and rinse all produce. Turn on the oven to 430F. Line a baking sheet with a non-stick sheet or parchment paper. Peel the potatoes and cut into fry shape pieces, about 1 cm thick. Place the fries on the baking sheet. Drizzle with oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp), salt (1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp), and pepper (1 pinch, 1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp). Combine to ensure even coating and place an even layer to ensure the potatoes cook evenly. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are fully cooked and start to become golden. Keep the oven on to heat the buns.
Preparation and cook the vegetables: While the fries are baking, peel and then shred the beet using a vegetable shredder. Finely cut the onion in about ½ cm dices. In a strainer or colander, rinse the black beans. In a large pan, add oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp), onion and the beets. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes, until the onion is tender. Remove the pan from the heat and let the vegetables cool down.
Make the patties: In a medium bowl, add the drained black beans. Mash them with a fork or a potato masher until they are mashed. In the bowl with the mashed black beans, add the cooked vegetables, chickpea flour and herbes de provences, salt (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 3/4 tsp) and pepper (1 pinch, 1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp).
Cook the patties: Make 2 or 4 or 6 patties with the mixture. Rinse and dry the pan. Place the pan on medium heat and add oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp). Place the patties in the pan and cook on medium heat for about 6-7 minutes per side.
Prepare the toppings & warm up the buns: Cut the ciabatta buns in 2 and place them on a baking sheet, cut side down. Heat the buns in the oven for about 1-2 minutes.
Assemble and serve: . Place a patty on each bottom bun. Garnish each burger with the black garlic sauce, mixed greens and goat cheese. Top each burger with the top bun. Serve with a side of baked fries.
