Bean burgers

My favorite vegetarian recipe: Kidney bean burgers!

Kidney bean burger

So delicious, my friend Rosie introduced me to this recipe, she is a vegetarian and apparently found this via StumbleUpon or something silly like that. Made these while my sister was visiting since she is a vegetarian. [Also I am really bad at coming up with vegetarian meals, Morgan and I eat some form of chicken or ground beef pretty much every night. So while my sister was here, our meals were: Vegetarian lasagna, Bean and cheese burritos, Kidney bean burgers, Vegetarian chili and cornbread, and pho. I’ve never eaten that many beans in one week before, I could never be a vegetarian unless I learned to really love tofu or something.]

One major recommendation, double this recipe! It is supposed to make “5 burgers,” but I’d put it more at about 2! Other than that, I’ve only changed this recipe slightly. That blog looks like it has other great recipes too (and not all veggie), I plan to try some soon.


One 15-ounce can kidney beans, drained, rinsed and mashed well

1/4 cup pecans, finely diced

1/4 cup onion, finely diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 egg

2 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon ketchup

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon yellow curry powder

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a large bowl combine the ingredients. Mix well and chill for 15 minutes.

Form into burgers and fry in a small amount of oil, or in a nonstick pan sprayed with vegetable cooking spray, over medium heat.


xoxo, emma
