  • 3 cup (500g) cooked brown rice (1 cup uncooked)
  • 3 cup cooked beans see notes*
  • 3/4 cup buckwheat flour see notes**
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (or onion powder) to taste
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano or mixed herbs
  • 1.5 tsp salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees C (fan-forced.)
  • Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until relatively smooth, with some chunky texture still remaining.
  • Place the mixture in the centre of a large sheet of baking paper and form into a loaf shape. Wrap the loaf up with the edges of the baking paper, folding the ends to close. Bake for 30-40 minutes until firm.


*for best results and flavour, use x2 cans of mixed beans (drain and rinse them) with a variety of different beans and legumes such as pinto beans, kidney beans, chickpeas and black beans.
**buckwheat flour can be substituted for oat, chickpea, spelt or regular plain flour (ensure gluten free if necessary.)
