Bern’s Spicy Bean Burgers Recipe Submitted by GSDPenny

Ingredients for Bern’s Spicy Bean Burgers:


  • 2 slices of bread (wholemeal or white)
  • 1 tin kidney beans, rinsed and drained (Think broad beans, or borlotti beans, or a combination of the 2 will work well instead)
  • 1 tin sweetcorn, rinsed and drained (or home grown crop late summer)
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 grated carrots
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • Teaspoon crushed garlic
  • Chilli, cumin, fresh coriander, Cajun powder – to taste – will absorb quite a lot
  • 1 beaten egg


  • Wholemeal flour
  • 1 beaten egg
  • Breadcrumbs (wholemeal or white)

Method for Bern’s Spicy Bean Burgers:

In food processor:-

  1. Blitz bread to breadcrumbs and tip into large bowl
  2. Grate carrot and add to bowl
  3. Chop onion and add to bowl
  4. Empty 2/3 kidney beans and sweetcorn to processor and blitz to mush. Add to bowl.
  5. Add remaining ingredients (apart from egg) and stir
  6. Add beaten egg and bring mix together
  7. Shape into burgers – if mixture is too sloppy, add a little flour, too sticky, add a little water
  8. Place on a plate of wholemeal flour to coat, then dip into egg and then breadcrumbs
  9. Leave to chill in fridge for at least a couple of hours to firm up a bit
  10. Bake in oven (at least 180°C) for about 20 minutes (could also shallow fry, but baking is healthier and works perfectly)

Makes 4 large burgers. You’ll only need 1 burger each, but I normally open freeze the other 2 burgers before bagging.  Haven’t tried cooking from frozen as I defrost first, but I suspect they would just take a little longer.
