Spicy Kidney Bean Patties Recipe

Serves 4

These are more of a cross between a fritter and a pattie and taste great served with sour cream, salsa and guacamole.


  1. 1 x 400g Suma Red Kidney Beans (VF643) – drained and roughly mashed.
  2. 2 oz/125g wholemeal flour
  3. 4 oz/250g plain white flour
  4. 1 tsp baking powder
  5. 2 eggs beaten
  6. 1/4 pint/150 ml milk or soya milk
  7. 1/2 onion very finely chopped
  8. 1 fresh green chilli (seeds removed) finely chopped
  9. 1 tsp Suma Turmeric (HE170, HE161, or HE394)
  10. 1 tsp Suma Cumin (HE143 or HE376)
  11. 1 – 2 tbsp soy sauce
  12. 2 – 3 tbsp Suma Sunflower Oil (GT083 or GT080) for frying


  1. Mix the flours in a large bowl and break the eggs into the centre. Gradually mix to a smooth batter adding the milk as you go. Add all the remaining ingredients except the oil, mix well and leave to settle for 15 – 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and drop dessertspoons of the mixture into the pan and fry for a few minutes on each side until gently browned.
  3. Serve with minted new potatoes and a green salad.

If you have a go we’d love to hear how they turn out!

  1. I have just made the spicey kidney bean patties and my partner has declared them the best burgers he has ever tasted! I have to agree with him, they are fabulous – cheers for the recipe!!

  2. I made these a few weeks ago and cut down on the amount of chilli in them to make them more child friendly. Mistake, as they were bland,so I ended up adding loads of herbs and spices to pep them up. They were then delicious. However – is that picture really these burgers?? Mine looked nothing like them at all, more like an american pancake!

  3. I have made these a few times and they are delicious. Don’t skimp on the spices, as they will taste bland. They are amazing with some guacamole and salad in rolls. They are also yummy cold. Most veggie burger/pattie recipes leave you with something that falls apart when you fry it, but this retains its shape. Mine didn’t look like the photo above but they were wonderful.
