Tips For How Make These Kidney Bean Burgers
- These bean burgers are so easy to make. There are just three steps. Mash and mix the ingredients. Form patties. Then lightly fry them in a minimal amount of sunflower oil.
- Use tinned kidney beans because those have already been cooked. Just give them a rinse before using.
- Can I use dried kidney beans? Yes but soak the dried beans for at least 12 hours and drain them. Then simmer in fresh water for around 1 hour to make them tender and to destroy any toxins.
- Can I freeze kidney bean burgers. Absolutely. Cook them first, allow them to cool and freeze in a container. You can easily reheat them from frozen in your oven.
