  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the mung/black beans until they form a chunky paste (leaving a few beans whole)
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sesame seeds, spices, salt and pepper.
  4. Next, add the mung bean "paste", minced garlic, coconut oil and lemon juice to the dry mix and combine well using a large spoon.
  5. Fold in the carrots, onion and coriander. Add a splash of water if the mix appears too dry.
  6. Taking a large handful, roll dough into a large ball, place it on the lined baking tray and use the palm of your hand to flatten to shape a burger patty. Repeat the process with remaining dough.
  7. Place in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and flip each patty, before returning them to the oven to bake for a further 20 minutes - until firm and lightly browned.
  8. Remove from oven and serve warm - either between quality bread, two portobello mushrooms, wrapped in a crunchy lettuce leaf or atop a salad.
