Bean Burger Brunch with Edgell Red Kidney Beans and Edgell Tomato Supreme Plus One

*This post is brought to you in collaboration with Edgell.

Just about everyone appreciates a good vegetarian meal every once in a while. Vegetarian options can be so refreshing and choosing a serve of something natural and packed full of protein and vitamins is a delicious alternative when you are feeling like a quick snack or a lighter meal.

Take brunch for example.

This recipe for bean burgers goes way back. These are our favourite go-to snack when there's a desire for a tasty meal that's on equal par with its meat equivalent. Everyone should have a good vegetarian burger recipe in their cookbook collection. This is all that and more! The fresh flavour of the coriander is divine in these burgers too.

This is my final post in my starring role as Edgell Australia's Blogger of the Month over on their Plus One website. I have had such a great time working with Edgell on this campaign and I really hope you have been enjoying some of my favourite recipes too, which have been re-worked with an extra enriching serve of Edgell vegetables.

Bean Burger Brunch with Edgell Red Kidney Beans and Edgell Tomato Supreme

One 750gram can of Edgell Red Kidney Beans
1 red onion (salad onion) finely chopped
I -2 large slices of crusty Italian bread for bread crumbs
1/4 of a cup of fresh coriander, chopped finely
1 egg white.

To serve:

One small loaf of Italian crusty bread
One tin of Edgell Tomato Supreme
Washed and dried salad leaves (assortment)
Sliced avocado
Cheese slices.

Place 2 slices of bread into a processor and process until it becomes fine bread crumbs. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

Reserve one cup of the Edgell whole beans and process the remaining beans until they are roughly chopped / mashed.

Add the processed beans, reserved whole beans, coriander, onion and egg white to the bread crumbs and mix together well.

Divide the mixture into patties and shape by hand into the size you require. This recipe can make four jumbo burgers or eight regular sized ones. Place each burger on a plate lined with baking paper while you prepare to fry them.

Heat a dash of olive oil in a non stick frying pan and fry the patties over medium-high heat for around
3-4 minutes each side until browned and heated through. (Using a salad onion means that they do not need to be fried for too long.) The burgers can be delicate so handle with care. If any break apart during cooking, gently mould them back into shape in the pan.

While the burgers cook, toast slices of the crusty bread and spread with a light coating of olive oil or your preferred spread. Top each slice of bread with salad leaves, sliced avocado, cheese slices and a bean burger.

Place your Edgell Tomato Supreme into an attractive serving bowl and spice things up further with a dash of your favourite hot sauce and a splash of lemon juice and mix well. This makes a chunky and healthy salsa that is budget friendly and tastes superior to the store varieties.

 Add a generous spoonful of Edgell Tomato Supreme homemade salsa to the top of each serve. (Alternatively, serve your salsa in a small side dish on each plate.) Enjoy!
