Bean Burger Recipe

Thanks to everyone who came to make bean burgers on Friday. It was great fun. The recipe we used for the rolls was adapted from Jamie Olivers basic bread recipe, see the link above. We used Doves Farm Malted flour and topped them with sunflower seeds.

The burger recipe was invented as a child friendly amalgamation of lots of recipes I looked up.


  • 2 tins organic mixed beans
  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 slices bread
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 glug of olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander

Oil an oven tray. Rinse the beans and place in a mixing bowl, mash them up with a potato masher of just squidge them between your fingers. Next finely grate the carrot and add to the beans. Place the onion and the garlic into a food processor on blend. Add to the mix. Next add the cumin and coriander, 2 large pinches of salt(optional) and the glug of oil. Use the food processor to turn the bread into crumbs and finally add to the mix. To shape, wet your hands, scoop out the mixture, shape then place on the tray. This mixture should make 8. Cook at 200 degrees for between 20 and 30 mins depending on your oven and thickness of patties. I’m sure these would fry great but I haven’t tried it yet!
