Beef & bean burgers

Last Updated: 14 December 2018








Beef & bean burgers

Combining beans with the beef not only reduces the fat content of these burgers, but also increases the fibre content. For a carb-free version, serve sandwiched in between two giant portobello mushrooms instead of bread rolls.


200g cooked red kidney beans

mashed 400g lean beef mince

1 red onion, finely diced

1/3 cup fresh whole grain breadcrumbs

1 egg

lettuce leaves

1 cooked beetroot

4 sliced multigrain bread rolls, toasted



1. In a large bowl, mix the beans, mince, onion, breadcrumbs and egg. Using your hands, shape the mixture into four patties. Cover and refrigerate for around 20 minutes.

2. Spray a non-stick frying pan with oil or wipe pan with a little oil on kitchen paper. Over a medium-high heat, cook the burgers for 4-5 minutes each side, or until just cooked through. Remove and keep warm.

3. Place the lettuce and sliced beetroot on the base of each bun. Serve topped with a patty and either salsa or guacamole.
