Kidney Bean Burgers

I’ve got a picky eater at home, and he even loves this burger and asks for seconds.

This burger has the protein and fiber of the beans, it is gluten free, and it has vitamin B12 from the nutritional yeast flakes, among many other nutrients.


  • 1 (15oz.) can of red kidney beans (drained)
  • 2-3 fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • pinch of cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon of basil
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons of brown rice flour (or any flour you prefer)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese (I prefer vegan mozzarella)
  • Avocado oil for frying


  • Add the drained beans and oregano leaves to a food processor.
  • Process for about 30 seconds.
  • Transfer the pureed beans to a medium bowl.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • If using a cast iron skillet, preheat to medium-high.
  • Form the burgers and fry.
If you don’t have a food processor, you can simply mash the drained beans with a fork.
