Bean Burgers

Bean Burgers


  • 250g sugar beans (cooked)

  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 3 tsp garlic

  • 4 tbsp breadcrumbs

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp curry powder

  • 4 tbsp oil

  • 1/2 cup flour for hand dusting


  1. Get your ingredients together. Put the sugar beans in a bowl. Using a vegetable masher, mash the sugar beans leaving them a little bit lumpy.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients excluding the oil. Mix until well combined.

  3. Dust your hands with a little bit of flour. Spoon about 2 1/2 tablespoonfuls of the mixture into your hands and shape into a patty. Place on a platter. Repeat process until mixture is finished.

  4. Cover platter and refrigerate for 15 minutes, giving time for the flavours to marry.

  5. After refrigeration time drizzle some oil on an oven tray or a pyrex dish. Place the patties in the lightly greased tray and drizzle a bit more oil onto each one. Bake in oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 – 20 min. Alternatively you may fry these in a pan if you wish. Taking care not to flip them too much as this may compromise the patty and it may disintegrate. Enjoy!
