Red kidney bean and sunflower seed burgers

A little burger recipe for you!!


Tin of red kidney beans

1 onion

1 carrot

20g maize meal or gram flour

100g sunflower seeds

50g breadcrumbs

1 tsp mild chilli powder

1 tsp paprika

1 tbsp olive oil

Pinch salt

Ground pepper

Chop the onion finely and fry in a little oil until soft and translucent.

Mix together all the ingredients, including the fried onions and drained kidney beans. Mash some of the beans but leave most of them whole. Bring together with your hands and form into 6-8 patties.


Fry each pattie on either side for a few minutes until crispy, then place on a baking tray and bake in the oven at 180’C for 10-15 minutes.


Serve in a burger bun with lettuce and relish.

I had mine in some bread with lettuce,  mustard and some chopped gherkins!
