For the quick pickle cucumber: Place the vinegar, water, sugar and salt in a small bowl and whisk until well combined. Add the cucumbers, stir to combine and then set aside to pickle while you prepare the burgers.
For the veggie patties: Cut the kumara in half lengthways and place in a steamer over simmering water, cut side down. Steam for 15-20 minutes or until tender, then set aside to cool. Once cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh of the kumara and discard the skin.
Bring a medium frying pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Cook the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes or until translucent. Add the paprika and cook for a further minute or until fragrant. Remove from the heat.
Place the oats in a food processor or high-speed blender. Blend the oats into a fine flour. Add the kumara, onion mixture and ketchup. Season with salt and pepper and pulse until well combined. Add the black beans, corn and coriander and pulse a few times until the mixture is just combined.* Shape the mixture into 4 patties and place each patty on a square of baking paper.
Bring a large frying pan to medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Place the patties in the pan paper side up. Remove the paper and cook the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned.
Assemble the burgers by spreading ketchup on the base of each burger bun. Top with lettuce, a veggie patty, pickled cucumber and cherry tomatoes. Spread the guacamole on the top bread bun and place it on top. Serve and enjoy.
When making your patties, ensure that you pulse gently once the black beans have been added to prevent puréeing the mixture. Leaving chunks of beans and corn add a great texture to these patties.
