Curry Kidney Bean Veggie Burgers
Health Highlights


2 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground) (for flax eggs)
6 tbsp Water (for flax eggs)
4 cup Red kidney beans, canned, drained (rinsed)
4 medium Carrots
1/2 medium Yellow onion
1 clove(s) Garlic
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Curry powder
1/2 cup Almond flour/meal, Bob's Red Mill
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 pinch Sea Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add the flaxseed meal and water to a dish and stir. Let rest for 5 minutes to thicken to make the flax egg.
  3. Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse the kidney beans a few times to break them down being careful to not fully puree them. Remove and put in a bowl.
  4. Next, add the carrots, onion, and garlic to the food processor and pulse until finely diced. Add to the bowl with the kidney beans.
  5. Add the flax egg, cumin, curry powder, almond flour, lemon juice, and sea salt to the bowl and mix well. Add a splash of water if the mixture is too dry to work with.
  6. Form the mixture into quarter-cup-sized patties and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 60 minutes, flipping halfway through then remove and let cool.
  7. Serve on your choice of bun with your favorite condiments, toppings, and sides! See suggestions below in the recipe notes.
