This is a burger that is both delicious and nutritious, with a combination of beans, vegetables, and spices.
Ingredients for 4 servings:
- One clean medium potato chopped
- One medium onion chopped
- One large carrot chopped fine
- One 12 ounce, (350g) can of cannellini or other white bean
- One teaspoon curry powder
- One teaspoon powdered cumin, or one half teaspoon Old Bay Seafood Seasoning
- Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
Method to prepare:
Cook potato chunks in water until soft and drain. Mash smooth.
Drain water from can of beans and mash smooth, and stir into mashed potato.
Sauté the onions and carrot pieces in a small amount of oil until soft. Mix into potato and bean mixture.
Sprinkle spices over mixture and mix in well with spoon. Mixture should become sticky and hold together as you mix.
Using clean hands, shape into 4 large or 6 smaller patties, flatten, and place on plate. Refrigerate at least one half hour to stiffen ingredients.
Fry in heated and oiled skillet until brown with a crispy crust. Turn carefully with spatula and fry on second side.
To serve, using spatula, slip onto a toasted hamburger bun or eat plain. I like to use ketchup as a condiment.
What I love about these bean
burgers is the mealy texture and Indian flavor. I've also successfully used
pinto beans with the same recipe.
Enjoy this easy tasty and filling meal!
