Author Notes

Packed with protein, fiber, folate, B12, magnesium, potassium and a number of other health promoting nutrients, red kidney beans are a true superfood! These (you can call) burgers are so quick to make, so silky to chew, so easy to forget about the meat cravings. Soft in the inside inside, crunchy from the outside and taken to another level with this Indian spiced sauce. MUITO BOM! :)
