  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp tahini

Mix water with flax and reserve in the fridge.  Put kidney beans in food processor and blend until chopped up, but still has some texture.  Place in a bowl with remaining ingredients, including flax egg, and mix well. Form into about 4 to 8 patties (depending on size desired) and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes a side.  Freeze if desired and re-cook in a non stick pan or on the bbq.
