Recipe for Kenwood by Claire Turnbull


  • 2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red onion, peeled and chopped into quarters
  • 2 slices of bread of your choice – wholegrain is ideal
  • Large handful of fresh coriander (or parsley if you prefer)
  • 2 Tbsps. of lime/lemon juice
  • 2 green or red chillis (or you can use 1tsp chilli flakes)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1.5 tsp of ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Seasoning
  • Oil for frying


  1. Place coriander into the Kenwood food processor and blitz on high until finely chopped using the chopping blade.
  2. Now pop the red onion and bread into the food processor and pulse until the onion and bread are both finely chopped.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and pulse until the mixture is combined. If you prefer a chunky burger, avoid over blending. You can also keep 1/4 of the beans aside and stir them into the mixture at the end to keep some whole beans in the mixture if you prefer or just add near the end and pulse for 5 seconds to mix through.
  4. Take spoonfuls of the mixture and shape into patties, and if you have time place them onto baking paper in the fridge for 20-30mins. Then fry over a low to medium heat in oil until brown on both sides and cooked through. (Alternatively, you can spray with oil and bake at 200 deg. on a lined baking tray for 10-12 minutes or until brown and hot through).

Tips: Serve in a wholegrain bread roll with salad and chutney or in a lettuce cup. You can also make into black bean balls to enjoy in the lunch box, great for kids.
