Bean Burgers from 1000 vegetarian recipes
I liked these. I like them in a sandwich or also just in with a bunch of finely chopped lettuce with avacado and tomatoes and salsa.
1 tbs oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped (I used minced)
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
5 oz/115g white mushrooms, finely chopped
1&1/2 cups canned red pinto or red kidney beans , drained and rinsed (I used pinto)
2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
all purpose flour for dusting (I used rice flour)
salt and ground black pepper
burger buns and salad to serve (or whatever)
1. Heat oil in heavy skillet. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, until soft. Add garlic, coriander, cumin and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute more. Add the mushrooms and continue to cook, stirring constantly, for 4-5 minutes until all the liquid has evaporated. Transfer the mixture to a bowl.
2. Place the beans in a small bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork. Stir beans into the mushroom mixture with the parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper.
3. Dust with flour. Divide the mixture into 4 portions and shape each into a flat round patty. Brush with oil and cook under a preheated broiler for 4 to 5 minutes on EACH side. Serve.
