Vegan Bean Burgers


As a vegan burger alternative beans are the best option in my opinion - full of nutrients and really tasty! I made these using kidney beans and they turned out great, especially with salad, relish and a wholemeal soft roll. They'd also be great served with rice or chips too, enjoy!

Makes 4 burgers:

Ingredients
  • Tin of red kidney beans
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Pinch of chili powder
  • Breadcrumbs, as needed
  • 3-4 tbsp plain flour, or as needed
Method:
  • Using a food processor, process the kidney beans and empty into a mixing bowl
  • Process the onion, garlic and bell pepper and add to the bowl
  • Add in the spices and breadcrumbs and mix together
  • If the mixture is too runny to form into balls, add flour until the consistency is workable
  • Separate and roll the mixture into 4 balls, then press down into burgers
  • Either fry the burgers in a frying pan or bake in the oven at 180°c for 30 minutes - baking keeps the insides soft
