Spicy Bean Burgers - Photos added

SPICY BEAN BURGERS


Number of People:...4

Ingredients:

1 Onion
2 teaspoons Olive Oil
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 x 400g can mixed beans, drained, rinsed and dried
1 x 400g green lentils, drained, rinsed and dried
1 tablespoon cornflour (optional)
Salt, Pepper

Preparation:

Quarter the onion and add to  *: with garlic and olive oil.  Chop on 5 for 5 seconds or until finely chopped.   Scrape down side of bowl.  Cook at 100 for 5 minutes speed 2.

Add the spices and cook for 1 minute at 100 speed 3.

Add in the rest of the ingredients and process on 6 for about 5 seconds.  You want there still to be some texture to the mix.

Shape the mixture into 4 big burgers or as many smaller burgers as you like.

Either BBQ on hot coals for 3-4 minutes each side OR fry in very hot pan with only a little oil.

NOTE - the mixture is quite wet.  I didn't use the cornflour and I think it may have held the burger together if I had done so.  Or possibly adding an egg to the mix might help.

I served it with tomato salsa (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=2892.0), green salad and sweet potato wedges which had been tossed in a little olive oil and sprinkled with paprika and baked in a hot oven for about 30 minutes.

Photos show burgers before and after cooking....  the after-cooking one isn't as elegant as it could be.

Actually I cheated - I made enough mix for 4 but as there are only 2 of us we had it a few days ago and had the remainder tonight...  The tomato salsa was definitely better the first time round - went a bit soggy this time

Thanks Katya - for non-vegans the egg might be useful.  They sound good - obviously - no photo !!!

Thanks Thermomixer - I had put it in the Vegan section because, as it stands, it is Vegan.   But you are right, the addition of the egg means it wouldn't be.

Should it be moved to Vegetarian?

Just to say I've made these again and have used the cornflour.  It does make the burgers hold together better so I would recommend using it.

My son and family will be visiting us soon so once again I am looking for vegan recipes. This sounds a good one and I am thiking it might make a good mixture for "sausage rolls" as well as "burgers". My dear daughter in law is now  eating only ethically produced foods sothis would be a good fit.

Thanks Katya
