Special Equipment

Instructions

    In the kitchen:

  • 01
    In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the beans, coriander, shallot, garlic, chilli powder, oregano, 1 tablespoon oil, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and pulse 15–20 times to form a thick, slightly chunky paste. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • 02
    In a small bowl whisk the egg and egg white until blended. Add the eggs and panko to the large bowl and combine thoroughly. The mixture should be quite thick
  • 03
    Using the burger press, form four compact patties of equal size, each about 1.5 cm/¾ inch thick. Cover and refrigerate the patties for 1–4 hours.
  • At the barbecue:

  • 01
    Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (200–260°C/400–500°F) and preheat a griddle.
  • 02
    Brush the patties on both sides with oil and season evenly with salt and pepper. Place the patties on the griddle and cook over direct medium-high heat for 6–8 minutes, with the lid closed, until browned and warm throughout, carefully turning once.

    During the last 30–60 seconds of grilling time, place a slice of cheese on each patty to melt, and toast the buns on the cooking grates, cut side down, over direct heat.
  • 04
    Build each burger on a bun with mayonnaise, a lettuce leaf, a patty and avocado slices. Serve warm.
