  • About This Recipe

    “I love to have a different veggie every once in a while and this one does it for me. Keep it bland or spicy (I love spicy), it’s up to you. Hope you enjoy it!”


  • 2cupsdrained cooked white beans (you may use other canned beans, Save a few tbsp of liquid when you drain the beans) or 2cupscanned white beans( you may use other canned beans, Save a few tbsp of liquid when you drain the beans)
  • 1/2 cuponion, minced fine
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced or 2tablespoonsdried parsley
  • 1egg, lightly beaten
  • salt
  • pepper
  • hot sauce( I like about 2 tbsp to zip them up)(optional)
  • 1/4 cupcoarse cornmeal or 1/4 cupfresh breadcrumb
  • peanut oil
  • Directions

  • Heat oven to 200°F.
  • Mash the beans, but do not puree, have a few lumps in here, add a bit of bean water if necessary to even out.
  • Combine the beans, onion, parsley, egg salt& pepper.
  • Add crumbs (I like the crumbs best) or cornmeal by the tbsp until you have a batter that you can handle by hand. Shape into hamburger shaped patties and fry in lightly sprayed oil coated pan, 3-5 minutes each side or until browned on each side. Keep warm in the 200°F oven until all are cooked or you could serve at room temperature.

  • “These are FABULOUS Bergy! OMG!! I used 1 can of Cannellini beans, which was a little less than 2 cups, so I used about 2/3 of an egg, and I ended up needing about 2/3 cup of bread crumbs, but that could just be from some of the moisture left on the beans, as I didnt drain completely dry.I used fresh parsley and took your advice and used 2 tablespoons of hot sauce, since we love things kicked up a bit!! :)These taste absolutely scrumptious! We will be making these time and time again… My fiance was raving about them! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe Bergy! “

  • “Fantastic! I took leftovers to work for lunch and people were all over it because they smelled so delicious! I made a batch with seasoned bread crumbs which were great with lots of salt, and another with only polenta and hot sauce – both super yummy. Thanks!”

  • “These are REALLY great, and protien+fiber-a-licious too!!(and VERY inexpensive to make, especially if you grow the parsley at home). LOVE it, and will definitely make this again.I used a can of beans, about 1/4 cup onion which I chopped in the mini food processor, and all the rest as written.Will be playing with the spicyness next time.Big THANKS, Bergy!!!”
