  1. Place kidney beans, onion, garlic, coriander, cumin and jalapeno chilli in a food processor and pulse until blended but still coarse. Transfer to a large bowl, add oats, egg and capsicum and mix together well.
  2. Divide mixture into 6 portions and mould each portion into a patty shape using your hands. Roll each patty in  flour and shake off the excess. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, and cook the patties in batches over medium heat for 4 minutes each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Mix together the salsa ingredients. Place each patty on a toasted pita bread, add a little shredded lettuce and spoon the tomato salsa over the top.
