for the patty
200g re-fried beans
1 TBSP cajun spice
1 TBSP paprika
1/2 TBSP garlic
1/2 TSP salt and pepper
for the aubergine puree
1 TBSP garlic puree
1/2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 TSP cumin
1 TBSP tahini
1 large avocado
1 large red onion
1.Pre-head your oven to 180 then score your aubergine through the middle. Add the garlic puree, cumin, olive oil then wrap in foil and place in the oven for 30 minutes.
2.Whilst that is cooking, combine all your patty ingredients into a bowl, adding the egg last to hold the mixture together. Separate into 6 balls and flatten to create a patty, place in the oven for 20 minutes, turning halfway.
3.When the aubergine is ready, remove from the foil casing and empty the inside with a spoon discarding the skin. Add the tahini and mix thoroughly.
4.Mash your avocado with a fork, layer a tablespoon on the bottom of the brioche bun, next add a tablespoon of your aubergine puree, your veggie patty, red onion and finally, a good dollop of aioli before the final half of your brioche bun. Tuck in and enjoy!!
