Vegetarian Cheeseburgers

It has been way too long since my last post - my sincere apologies!

Now that I have a little more spare time on my hands, I thought it was about time to post a new recipe. Tonight I made vegetarian cheeseburgers - one of our weekend favourites at the moment.

Here's what you'll need for these:

400g can red kidney beans (drained and rinsed, roughly mashed with a fork- not too mushy!)
1 small brown onion (finely chopped)
100g grated low fat cheddar cheese
100g breadcrumbs
1 egg
plain flour, for dusting
1 tbsp vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste

Burger buns
White onion
, sliced
Tomato, sliced
Iceberg lettuce
Tomato sauce

1. Combine all of the above (with clean hands is easiest)... it should form a chucky paste. Divide mixture into 4 or 5 balls and roll in a little flour. Flatten and shape into burger style patties.

2. Heat oil in frying pan on medium heat and fry gently for 8-10 minutes, turning once.

3. Assemble burgers, and enjoy!

  • You can add any other trimmings that take your fancy - cheese slices, mustard, aoli, beetroot... you name it!
  • If you are luck enough to have a food processer, use it to blitz your onions and kidney beans respectively. It's so quick and you won't get onion eyes :)


  1. Wow.. I have just started doing the Vegan way of life.. (trying it on for size due to many years of curiosity) and these look great!

    I will def have to give these a go! Thanks.

    Hate to burst the bubble, but although Im American, Im living up in sunny QLD (for the last 9 years).. so technically its the other side of the world from you anyway... ya know since we dont practice daylight savings or any other form of "normalcy" hahaha
