This plant based vegan bean burger recipe makes 6 vegetable patties that are made using a single tin of kidney beans with couscous, fresh herbs and vegetables. If you want a delicious and nutritious vegetarian or vegan burger without any additives then look no further!
The burger patties themselves are plant based and vegan and you can also add your favourite vegan cheese and condiments to make this an entirely vegan burger or just enjoy a vegetable forward meal. Using beans like kidney beans in your diet is beneficial in many ways because of their high nutritional value. Theyr'e high in protein, fibre and minerals and kidney beans are said to be in the top 5 healthiest beans.
Kidney beans are also associated with lowering blood sugars and cholesterol and helping heart health. I love making a bit batch of these and then having them on hand to make a healthy lunch every day. Mr NQN loves these burgers a lot and really enjoyed getting a burger every day and I liked that they were healthier than a lot of burgers.
Mr NQN is a big vegetarian burger lover because he grew up vegetarian and these burgers even got little Teddy and Milo excited even though there's obviously no meat in them. I've mentioned how Teddy is close to Mr NQN while Milo is close to me. When we first got them I was worried I'd be outnumbered by the boys in the house and that I'd be pushed to the outer but the difference in each dog's personalities meant that we got one each. Teddy is an aloof boy that doesn't need much attention, sort of like Mr NQN who is shy and can be aloof while Milo is outgoing and loves cuddles and attention, like me. Milo is always up for a caper while you do have to convince Teddy to do things.
Every night after dinner I will go upstairs to the bedroom. It's my happy place as it's spacious, comfortable and warm and I decorated it just the way I want it. I sit upstairs with Milo, cuddling and intertwined while I watch tv. While I am going that Mr NQN is downstairs on the sewing machine.
Yep that's right, sewing! He actually used to be a sailmaker and he is actually sewing new tops on our curtains so he sits downstairs sewing with Teddy looking on next to him in a dog bed. The two dogs couldn't be happier and we have a little buddy of our own to keep us company.
So tell me Dear Reader, do you like veggie burgers? Do you have a type of bean that you always keep in your pantry?
