Adzuki Bean Burger

These are amazing, versatile and healthy and can be made in a jiffy.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups adzuki bean (lal lobia) sprouts (ones sprouted for a day are best)
  • 2 small unpeeled carrots, grated
  • ½ small unpeeled beetroot, grated
  • 1 tsp ginger-green chilli paste
  • ½ tsp unrefined salt

Method

Take all the ingredients in a food processor and grind to a coarse mixture without adding water. Shape into 2” X ½” round patties and place in a steamer to cook. You will know that they are done once they become firm and come off easily. Serve with a chutney of your choice, or as a burger inside a whole wheat or multi grain bun with veggies and condiments. Additionally, you may also bake the burgers in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 12-15 minutes, to brown them..

Variations

You can replace the adzuki bean sprouts with moong sprouts, masoor sprouts or any other sprouts of your choice. The roots should be small.

Replace the veggies with sweet potatoes, potatoes, pumpkin or any grated fibrous vegetable. Replace the ginger-green chilli paste with herbs of your choice. You can make burgers with different flavours to suit every palate and menu.
