  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped

  • 1 pinch chilli

  • 1 eggs beaten

  • 1 slice wholemeal bread made into breadcrumbs in the food processor

  • 1 pinch cumin

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 2 tbsp red pesto

  • 1 tin cannellini beans


  1. In a frying pan, heat a little oil to soften the onion and garlic.
  2. In a bowl, use a masher to mash the beans, then add egg, breadcrumbs, pesto/chutney and spices and mix well.
  3. Add the bean mixture to the onions in the frying pan mix well and heat through for a couple of minutes.
  4. Scoop it all back into a bowl and allow to cool for a few minutes, then roll satsuma sized portions into a ball, put back in frying pan with a little more oil, flatten out with a spatula into a burger shape, and cook through, turning as needed.
  5. Serve with granary rolls and salad (maybe with a little hummus or avocado). Yummy.

    Egg not mentioned in list of ingredients. Am assuming one whole egg, rather than just a splosh of egg.

    I used kidney beans and turned out very well, tasty and quite easy.
