Jack's burgers

A very easy lunch today - Jack Monroe's Carrot, Kidney Bean and Cumin burgers.
If you've never made these before, I can recommend them.

I made these with my kitchen assistant (2 year old Granddaughter!).

This is my version/method.

Drain and rinse two time of value kidney beans.  Pop them into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Turn off the heat and leave to cool slightly before draining again.

Meanwhile, grate two carrots and one onion.

Add a little oil to a non-stick pan and sauté the grated veg with 2tsp ground cumin.  Add the drained beans and stir to mix.  Heat gently.  Mash the mixture to a thick consistency. Roll into balls and place on a floured plate.

Heat oil in the pan once more.
Take each ball and roll in flour* before flattening slightly and then frying on each side for a few minutes until golden brown.

These are delicious.

Sometimes we eat these in bread rolls like traditional burgers, sometimes with salad and coleslaw.
Today I ate mine with just brown sauce!

A proper yummy lunch. :-)

  1. I have made these a few times, they are on the meal plan for Monday. I will be stuffing them into homemade rolls with a handful of baby spinach and serving with more salad and Apple, Plum and Chilli relish. None of my guests are vegetarian but they all love these.
