Three-Bean Burgers

You will need:

150g Black eyed beans

1/2 a can or approx 150g of Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans

1/2 a can or approx 150g Kidney beans

 Cooking Instructions:

Soak the beans then boil until tender, approx. 10 minutes. Alternatively use canned cooked version but usually black eyed beans you won’t find pre-cooked.

Season with salt, pepper and 2tbsp paprika, mix well to coat all then blend 2/3 of the beans; reserving 1/3.

Once blended, stir in the un-blended 1/3 of beans to add texture and bite to the burgers. Adjust seasoning if required.

Using wet hands shape into burgers or patties and leave to rest and firm up for at least 1 hour before cooking. I made mine the night before cooking them and then simply grilled them for a few minutes until crisp on the outside the next day. Alternatively you could bake them which again is a similarly healthy option using no oil, but if frying use coconut oil.

The burgers don’t need much cooking as the beans are already cooked, just some crisping up!
