This Red Beans Burger are perfect vegetarian version of Turkey/Ham Burger and full of healthy ingredients, now I indulge myself in this junk food once in a week without any guilt about the calories I am consuming. Sometimes I use these patties instead of Falafel in my wraps, topped with loads of salad dressing and greens, which is totally divine!!!
For Burger Patty:
⅓ Cup Red Kidney Beans, soaked for 2 – 3 hours in water
¼ Cup Soya Mince, boiled and drained
¼ Cup Oats, Powdered + 2 Tbsp
¼ Cup Chopped Onion
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Cumin Powder
Salt, as per taste
¼ Cup Hudson Canola Oil for Shallow Frying
¼ Cup hung yogurt (you can also use greek yogurt)
1 tablespoon mayonnaise (optional)
Few sprigs of Chives and Parsley, chopped
Salt and Pepper, as per taste
3 Medium Burger Buns
Greens – Any choice of lettuce, baby spinach, arugula or clover sprouts
Sliced tomatoes, cucumber, Gherkin, Onion
1 1/2 tablespoon Olive oil for brushing
Pressure cook red beans in 1 Cup water until soft and mushy. Drain in colander and keep aside for 15 minutes.
Bring ingredients of burger patty together in a bowl. Mix well using spatula or hand. Divide into 3 equal parts. Make sure there is no excess water in cooked beans and soya mince.
Take one part in hand. Using both hands roll into a ball. Press between palms to make a flat 1/2 – 3/4 inch thick patties. Pop in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
Before cooking coat patties in 2 tbsp powdered oats.
Heat a heavy bottom pan and pour canola oil. Cook patties both sides until crispy from outside, for about 10 minutes.
Whisk ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside for later.
Cut the Burger Buns into half. Brush the cut sides of buns with oil. Place on hot pan. Lightly toast for 30 seconds.
Spread cheese slice on bottom half of bun followed by lettuce leaves, burger patty then spoonful of yoghurt sauce. Place tomato, onion and greens topped by the top roll half.
Enjoy the junk without any calorie guilts!!!
