Today, I invented these fabulous & tasty vegan & gluten-free red bean burgers! They look like meat burgers but I assure you they are NOT :) They are even better !!! Check these out, won’t you???
Recipe: For 4 bean burgers, each 1 cm thick + 8 x 9 cm
** For the red bean burgers:
2 cans of organic red kidney beans ( each can = 400 gr ), well-rinsed under water & well-drained
1 teaspoon of dried shalots powder
1 teaspoon of dried garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt + 4 grins extra
15 grins of finely milled black pepper
2/4 teaspoons of smoked picanté paprika ( The Spanish smoked picanté version )
1/3 cup of smaller buckwheat flakes ( gluten-free )
1/2 teaspoon of a fruity EVOO
** To serve with the bean burgers:
lettuce leaves ( home-grown )
2 red onions, peeled, sliced into rings, fried in a fruity EVOO, sea salt & black pepper on them for added flavour! Fried until browned & cooked through on both sides!
Gluten-free hamburger buns or normal burger buns, toasted, if you like!
1. In a large bowl add the red kidney beans. Wit the help of a fork, mash the beans for 3/4. So you want to end up with mashed beans & still 1/3 of the beans partial mashed. Add dried shalots, dried garlic, salt, pepper & smoked picanté paprika, all equally divided over the beans. Mix well. Add 1/3 cup of buckwheat flakes. Mix again. You now, have a tougher mix. I wanted to loosen it a bit & added that 1/2 teaspoon of fruity EVOO. Mix again. Taste! It has to taste fab! It must taste powerful but you must taste the ingredients too. :) I added the 4 grins of salt extra. Shape into 4 burger patties. Place them spaced apart on a clean plate & place cling film over them. Place into the fridge for later use or fry them instantly in a hot non-stick pan for a few minutes on each side or until browned on both sides.
2. Now, plate up. Take your toasted hamburger bun & build up your burger. Smear some tasty veganaise on the bottom of your toasted bun. Add a few lettuce leaves, add your tasty vegan red bean burger, add a slice of tomato, add some fried red onion rings, add a dollop of ketchup & close with your top bun! Enjoy instantly with a loved one! ;) Enjoy it twice!! xxx
