    mycashewchicken's Note:

    Tasty and extremly healthy bean burgers that combine the rich flavor of kidney beans with the meaty texture of black beans. Brown rice in the recipe is not only a healthy addition, but makes these firm and hearty patties. A PERFECT meat substitute- you wont notice the difference!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a food processor, blend black beans and kidney beans to a fine mash. It is alright if some bean chunks still remain solid.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, add to bean mash any desired spices. I strongly reccomend liberal amounts of chili powder, cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder. You might also add an adobo seasoning.
    3. 3
      Should you desire, you might add any kind of chopped or shredded vegetables at this point. From experience, I find salsa is a nice addition.
    4. 4
      Mix in 1.5 cups of cooked brown rice into bean mash and stir till even consistancy. Gradually fold in entire package bread crumbs- bean mash will visibly thicken, it is advisable to use your hands at this point.
    5. 5
      Grab small palmfulls of bean mix and flatten into burger sized patties. I generally find I make about 28 patties in one go- this is variable as yours may be smaller or larger.
    6. 6
      I freeze patties for weeks (months) at a time in an air-tight container or freezer bag.
    7. 7
      To cook- either bake in a toaster oven until exterior is crusty and crispy, or pan fry with a small amount of oil or cooking spray. These are very firm burgers and will hold up extremly well- better than any other bean burger ive seen!
    8. 8
      Dress your burgers with any number or great things- BBQ suace is a particular favorite.
    9. 9
      Also try crumbling cooked burgers and using the 'meat' as taco filling- tastes delicious especially with taco sauce.

      I added 2 Tbsp of ground flax seeds, mixed with 4 Tbsp of water (set in the fridge for 15 min before use) to act as 2 eggs, for binding. <br/>Also, I only had half of a 15 oz package of breadcrumbs, so I threw some slices of bread in the oven to make more.<br/>I used the suggestion for the salsa, great idea. <br/>Mushing and mixing with hands is a must, I think.

      Okay, this is fantastic! I had to add some egg white because it was too dry but everyone devoured them, even my son who refuses to eat beans!!

      I thought this was very tasty. However, I changed the the recipe up some. I converted the recipe to 2 servings. Instead of red and black beans I just used 2 cans of organic black beans and left out the bread crumbs (because I didn't have any). I also used a half cup of brown rice and seasoned with only onion salt and garlic powder to taste. I opted to fry due to time constraints. Before doing so I let the patties sit for a while to cool and harden before frying. I served them on toasted honey wheat bread with spicy mustard, diced purple onion, and organic nappa cabbage.
