The Best Bean Burgers
1 half red onion chopped
1 or 2 (depending on heat preference) Whole ripened jalapeño chillies
4 cloves garlic
2 x 400g cans of black beans drained and rinsed.
120g plain bread crumbs (the perfect use for that stale leftover bread)
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 Purely Organic egg yolks (save those egg whites for the wedges)
To a food processor add onion, chillies and garlic and pulse.
Add black beans and partially mix leaving some black beans whole.
Stir in bread crumbs, cumin, salt, pepper and egg yolks to bind.
Divide into 8 burgers.
To cook... Fry: Heat a little oil in a pan and cook on a medium high heat for 5 minutes on each side. Grill: Cook under a medium heat grill for 5 minutes each side. Oven: Oven bake at 180’C for 5 minutes each side
Ensure burger is cooked throughout and serve in a bun with salad and garnish of your choice.
Crispy Potato Wedges
2 Purely Organic egg whites kept from the burgers
Cajun spice/ Chilli powder or any seasoning of your choice
Clean and cut your potatoes into wedges.
If you’re tight for time, parboil them for roughly 5 minutes and drain.
Put the wedges on a non-stick baking tray.
Sprinkle on Cajun spice, chilli powder or seasoning of your choice not forgetting the mixed herbs too.
Take your egg whites which you saved from the burger recipe.
Brush or dip the wedges in them.
