Kidney Bean Burger

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Makes: 6 burgers


  • 1 x 400g can kidney beans 
  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped 
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed 
  • 2 heaped tsp mixed herbs 
  • 115g breadcrumbs 
  • 50g semolina 
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce 
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil 
  • 6 buns, lightly toasted 
  • Salad 
  • Relish


  1. Drain, rinse then mash the kidney beans. 
  2. Mix together the beans, tomatoes, garlic and herbs in a large bowl. 
  3. Add the breadcrumbs and semolina. Mix well. 
  4. Add soy sauce and lemon juice. If necessary add a tablespoon of water to increase moisture (but don’t be tempted to add any more!) 
  5. Shape into burgers. You can freeze the burgers to cook another time at this step if you like. 
  6. Gently fry the burgers in the vegetable oil until golden brown, approximately about 10-15 minutes.
