Sausage and Kidney Bean Burgers with Spicy Tomato Rice

I got the inspiration for these burgers from this website and decided that I quite fancied making my own version of these.  

I was actually pretty pleased with how these burgers turned out, I think they had a nice taste to them. They went well in a pitta bread with the spicy tomato rice on the side. 

Serves 4


Sausage & Kidney Bean Burger
  • 4 gluten free sausages ( I used the Butcher's selection sausages from Asda)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of gluten free plain flour and a little extra
  • Olive oil

Spicy Tomato Rice

  • 1 mug of basmati rice
  • 1/2 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons of hot chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic granules
  • Salt and Pepper
4 Pitta Bread to Serve


  1. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion on a medium heat, until they start to soften. Add the paprika, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper and stir through.
  2. Whilst the onions are cooking through, boil a kettle and cook the kidney beans through for about 10 minutes. Drain and then tip into a bowl and mash them with a fork or a potato masher. 
  3. Skin the sausages and add the meat to the bowl with the mashed beans. Tip in the cooked onion mixture, the flour and stir through with a fork.
  4. Use a little extra flour and divide the mixture into 8 small patties.
  5. Tip the rice into a pan with 2 mugs of water, add a little salt. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and put the lid on. Leave to cook for approximately 15 minutes, or until cooked through.
  6. While you are cooking the rice, you can start cooking the sausage patties on a medium heat for about 4 - 5 minutes on each side or until they are fully cooked through.
  7. Tip in the chopped tomatoes, chilli powder, paprika, garlic granules and salt and pepper. Cook through for another few minutes. You can add more or less chilli powder, depending on how hot you want the rice.
  8. Toast the pitta bread, add the burgers and serve alongside the tomato rice.

I would definitely have these again and they made for a substantial evening meal. It was also pretty low cost, so another good reason to make these again!
