Serves 5


150g cooked brown rice

140g wholemeal breadcrumbs

½ tbsp. coconut oil

½ an onion (finely diced)

230g of cooked kidney beans

3 tbsp. of BBQ sauce

1 garlic clove (finely chopped)

1 tbsp. chilli powder

1 tbsp. cumin powder

1 tbsp. paprika

Salt and pepper


  • Take a large, wide-bottomed frying pan and place on a medium heat
  • Add the walnuts and cook until golden brown, set to the side to cool
  • Add the oil, onion and garlic to the now empty pan and cook until the onion is soft. Take the pan off the heat and set aside
  • Add the cooled walnuts to a blender with the chilli, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper and blend until fine
  • Take a large mixing bowl and roughly mash the kidney beans, then add the onion, blended walnut, bread crumbs, BBQ sauce and rice to the bowl and combine well
  • Divide the mixture into five burgers and flatten to desired thickness
  • Cook the burgers by either grilling on a BBQ or frying in a pan on a medium heat for around 8 minutes turning half way through

We recommend these burgers are served on a brioche bun with a side salad, chunky chips and guacamole or homemade relish.
