  • 600g/11⁄4lb canned cooked red
  • kidney beans, drained
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon dried ground bay leaf
  • 1 egg
  • 12 tablespoons dried breadcrumbs
  • vegetable oil for deep-frying salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Blend the beans in a food processor until they form a smooth paste. Add
    the butter, vinegar and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper. Blend for
    2 minutes. Separate the mixture into 12 portions shaped like fingers.
  • Beat the egg with some water, and put in a shallow dish. Put the
    breadcrumbs in another shallow dish.
  • Coat the fingers, or croquettes, first with the egg, then with the
    breadcrumbs. Repeat the egg and breadcrumbs process to ensure that
    the croquettes are well coated. Chill for 1 hour.
  • Heat enough oil for deep-frying in a heavy frying pan over a mediumhigh heat. When the oil is hot enough, deep-fry the croquettes until golden brown. Remove from the pan using a spatula or slotted spoon,
    and drain on kitchen paper. Serve hot.
