Mixed Bean & Almond Rissoles

Tasty fried rissoles; patties of beans combined with nuts and oats make a great easy dinner full of protein and fibre. Kids seem to love these and they are perfect for lunch boxes or a packed lunch for work. Serve them with a side salad, with steamed vegetables, in pita pockets or on a roll with lettuce and mayo…. Yum! Use any combination of beans you like, tinned or pre-cooked. For this particular recipe I used a combination of kidney, navy, green lima beans and chickpeas.

Preparation time: 20mins (+ 30mins refrigeration)
Makes 15

  • 700g (25 oz) mixed beans (like kidney, butter or chickpeas), cooked or tinned
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • ½ cup wholegrain rolled oats
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup vegetarian tasty cheese (optional)
  • 1 free-range egg (omit if vegan)

In a large bowl mash the beans gently and season with salt and pepper to taste.

By hand or in a food processor dice remaining ingredients (except the egg) finely.

Add all ingredients to the mashed beans and combine well.

Form about 1½ tbs or mixture at a time into rissoles. Set aside on a large tray and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Lightly oil a large fry pan and cook the rissoles in batches over medium heat for 4-5 minutes each side until golden and cooked through.

Serve with a side salad or steamed vegetables or in rolls or pita pockets.
