I made these tonight and they were pretty tasty. I mushed the whole lot of beans in the food processor and my dayghter didn't like the sqidgy texture in the middle so will probably only do half in the food processor next time, as in the recipe. The only other changes I made were that I used oat bran instead of flour and added mixed herbs. They had a lovely flavour and my Son who isn't a fan of beans or vegetarian food wolfed it down. I'll be making again. Thanks :)



I printed out this recipe for my fiance to make and the end result was lovely!  We have never cooked with aduki beans before and I think this is a nice quick recipe :)


I made these last night with the following changes:
Sauteed the onion and garlic in veg. broth
Added ground cayenne, Chinese 5-spice, and ginger (about 1/4 tsp. each)
Used panko instead of bread crumbs
Omitted the flour and oil
Refrigerated the bean mixture for 30 minutes before making patties
Baked on a nonstick cookie sheet for 10 minutes (375*F), then broiled for 3 minutes on each side until crisp. 
I ended up with 6 thin patties, which would probably also make 4 thick patties. 

I served the 'burgers' on a bed of garlic-infused kale with roasted delicata squash on the side.  Very good!  Thanks for the recipe./
