Spicy beanburger

Serve these wholesome burgers in buns or with a lightly dressed tomato and red onion salad

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1 x 420g can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 175g/6oz wholegrain breadcrumbs
  • 100g/4oz unsalted peanuts or cashews
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp medium curry paste
  • 50g/2oz fresh root ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 medium eggs, beaten
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp groundnut oil
  • Wholemeal rolls and salad leaves to serve

Lightly mash the beans with a fork and stir in the breadcrumbs.

Blend the nuts in a blender or processor until roughly chopped (or chop on a board by hand). Add to the bowl with the onion.

Beat together the curry paste, ginger and eggs and add to the bowl with a little seasoning. Stir well until combined.

Using wetted hands to prevent sticking, shape the mixture into 4 large or 8 small balls, then flatten into burger shapes.

Heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook half the burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden. Keep warm while cooking the remaining burgers in the rest of the oil.

Serve in wholemeal rolls with a few salad leaves.
