Spicy Kidney Bean Patty CakesSubmitted by: GABAY29
Eden Organic Kidney Beans, 4 cup
Quaker Old Fashioned Quaker Oats half cup dry, 1 cup
Jalapeno Pepper, 2 serving
Bell Pepper, Red, 2 medium raw, 296 gram(s)
Red Onions, Raw, .25 cup (40g), 1 cup
Garlic, 4 cloves
*Cumin, 1 tsp
Pepper, red or cayenne, 1 tsp
Oregano, ground, 1 tsp
Soften these up a bit.
Cook the beans according to the directions on the package. If you are using dry beans, which I recommend, you’ll want to soak them overnight so plan for that.
Once your beans are cooked, add your quaker oats and using a masher or large spoon, mash up the beans and oats. I wouldn’t use a food processor for these because you run the risk of over-processing the beans. You want them to still have plenty of texture, but just broken up a bit.
Mix in your sauteed veggies and all your other spices. Feel free to adjust the spices if you want the patties even spicier.
Then form about 2 ounce patties with the mixture. You should be able to get about 24 patties out of the mixture. To finish these guys off, cook them in a few tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes a side. These will give the burgers a good crust on the outside and heat them up all the way through. We sprinkled some more spices (chili powder and cumin) on each patty before frying them up.
You can also use a 24 cup cake tray and bake in the oven for a few minutes at 350 degrees.
