Bean Burgers


  • 400g cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1tsp tomato puree
  • 1tsp cornflour
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • seasoning


  • Place the beans in a large bowl and use a fork to thoroughly mash the beans.  Add the tomato puree, cornflour, spring onion, garlic, chilli powder and turmeric.  Season generously and mix well.
  • Divide the mixture into two portions and form into balls, then flatten a little to form a burger.  If you have time, chill for 20 minutes or keep refrigerated until needed.  The burgers will hold their shape slightly better if chilled but will be delicious if cooked straight away.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.  Add the burgers to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • Serve with mint yoghurt and salad.
