  • Mushroom and kidney bean pattie recipe: I have used kidney beans as part of this recipe which are a good source of several vitamins and minerals. Kidney beans are also high in fibre. Eating an adequate amount of fibre is one strategy to help manage and prevent constipation


  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 2 large Portobello/Field mushrooms
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup of cooked kidney beans
  • 1 small carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • Breadcrumbs 
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chili (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 egg 
  • Salad to serve (sliced tomato, lettuce leaves)


  • Peel and cut the sweet potato into battens or chips – 2cm x 8cm. Place on a baking tray with non-stick paper.
  • Remove mushroom stalks, place on the same baking tray and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Roast in a 200ºC (392ºF) oven for 20 minutes, or until mushrooms and sweet potato are cooked.
  • In a food processor combine kidney beans, carrot, onion, coriander, breadcrumbs and spices. Process to a rough paste. Transfer to a bowl and mix through the egg. Form into 2 patties.
  • Fry the patties in extra virgin olive oil until warmed through and browned on the outside.
  • To assemble, place the salad on the bottom of the plate, then the patty, your favourite sauce or chutney and top with the roasted mushroom.
  • Serve with the sweet potato chips on the side
