Recipe: butter bean burgers: fairly frugal

I made this for DD for lunch today as the rest of us were having slow roast beef.

Butter bean burgers (makes three medium burgers or two larger burgers)
1 small can butterbeans, drained and mashed well
a little bit of onion, finely chopped
a little bit of celery ditto
a little bit of yellow pepper, ditto
1 chestnut mushroom, ditto
a small knob of butter
a squidge of garlic
some herbs/seasonings (I used mixed herbs, some mustard powder to go with the cheese, salt and pepper)
some finely grated cheddar

flour and oil

Melt the butter in a small pan and saute the onion, celery, pepper and mushroom until soft.  Try not to brown anything.  Add the squidge of garlic and saute for one more minute.  Tip into a bowl but keep the pan, don't dunk it in water or anything.

Add the mashed butterbeans, the seasoningsd and the grated cheese and mix well.  Test a little bit by frying it in the pan before tasting and adjust seasonings if necessary.

Form into patties and dust in flour.  Place on a plate, cover and chill until needed.
When needed, fry in a little oil or butter until cooked through and golden on each side.

Very tasty!

  1. I saw reference to this recipe on Frugal of Derbyshire's comments so popped over to have a look. I think I'll give it a try. I also like the look of your Mum's vegetarian sausage rolls.
