Hello my friends ,
so glad its Saturday evening. Nice and relaxing day it was. I am writing to you from our office and I can see the rain has stopped already and I am hoping for a sunny day tomorrow as the weather app showed.
Today I made some yummy food and the recipe I want to share with you is
Kidney Bean Burgers with lemon potatoes and raw beetroot dressing
Here is what you need for the burgers
- 1 cup of red kidney beans (cooked)
- 2 slices of wholemeal bread
- 2 onions (chopped)
- 1 cm of ginger
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 tea spoon of ground cumin
- 1/2 tea spoon of turmeric
- 1/2 tea spoon of black pepper
- salt to taste
First step is to cook the onions with the garlic and ginger and all the spices.Chop the onions or use a food processor together with the garlic and ginger. Then fry in a bit of olive oil with all the spices. Pour a bit of water and let it simmer until the onions are soft and cooked. While they are cooking you can empty the cup of red kidney beans in the food processor and blend it for a 30 seconds or so. Then put it in a bowl. Them wet the 2 slices of bread and blend them in the food processor as well. Add them in the bowl and then add the cooked onions. Mix well and shape the burgers.
That’s them ready to go in the oven .
To make the lemon potatoes all you need is some potatoes, juice from 1 lemon, oregano salt and pepper and olive oil. Simply cut into chunks and put into the oven in 180 degrees for about 30 minutes , mixing occasionally . You can pour some white wine once they are half cooked or water if you prefer.
To make your raw beetroot dressing in a Vitamix here is what you need .
1 medium size beetroot
juice from 1/2 lemon
salt to taste
1/2 cup of water
All you do is peel the beetroot and then blend it for about a minute, minute and a half until you get the smooth texture of ketchup. It heats up a bit so cool in the fridge for about an hour.
This is a quick serving idea. Kidney bean burger on a bed of spinach , lettuce and carrot salad with lemon potatoes and raw beetroot dressing.
