Mean Red Bean Burger
Yep, another burger. I still really like my
Beetsteak Burger and the Tofish one, but I made this one because I had so many beans in my cup board. So let me introduce you to the Mean Red Bean Burger!

: 15 min Total
1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small carrot, grated
2 Tbsps ground flaxmeal + 3 Tbsps water (or one large egg)
2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional)
Caramelised onion relish or mustard
Step 1 Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
Step 2 Put all the burger ingredients in a food processor, or in a big bowl and make sure to squash the beans first with a potato masher.
Step 3 Once everything is mixed, add the breadcrumbs (or flour) until the mixture is dry enough but still moist.
Step 4 Make patties from the mixture. I got about 6 out of this, so I put 3 in the freezer and made 3 burgers now.
Step 5 Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan. Put the burger patties on the pan to cook. Let them cook about 3-4 minutes on each side.
Step 6 Assemble the burger with the lettuce, relish, watercress, pickled cucumber and pattie on a bun.
