  • Food processor
  • Cast iron skillet


Plum Puree

  • 20 dried plums pits removed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Meyer lemon
  • 1 splash vanilla extract
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Radish and Plum White Bean Patty

  • 1 lb cooked Texas cream peas or any other white bean
  • 1/2 lb French breakfast radishes or other spicy radish
  • 2 stalks green onion
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp unrefined salt
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 cup brown rice flour


Plum Puree

  • Add pitted plums, water, vanilla extract, and cinnamon stick to a small sauce pot. Add zest and juice of a ripe Meyer lemon.
  • Heat to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Plums will rehydrate and release some of their flavor into the pan sauce.
  • Add pot ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.

Radish and Plum White Bean Patty

  • Gently blend white beans in food processor. Leave about 1/4 of the beans whole.
  • Wash radishes and blend in food processor until pieces are about 1/8".
  • Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat.
    Wash and slice green onions into thin slices. Sauté for about 5 minutes in olive oil until soft. Add a pinch of salt and pepper before removing from the skillet.
  • In a large bowl, combine white beans, chopped radish, green onions, 1/2 cup plum puree, and seasonings.
    Mix to combine.
  • Add in rice flour and mix to combine. If mixture is sticky and hard to handle, add a bit more rice flour, about 1/4 cup at a time until patties are easy to form.
  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
    Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil.
  • Form patties and sear on each side for about 4-5 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Place entire skillet in oven. Cook burgers for 5 minutes on each side.
  • Make a burger with aioli, mustard, chopped greens, goat cheese, lettuce and tomato, or whatever your heart desires!
