How To make a Vegatarian Bean and Mushroom Burger

Your rating: None
Vegetarians and vegans can enjoy these healthy veggie burgers. With salad and pitta bread they make a substantial meal. Serves 4.
What you'll need: 
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped, 1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
4 oz finely chopped mushrooms
14 oz can of red kidney beans
2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander, wholemeal flour, for shaping
olive oil, for brushing
salt and black pepper
salad and warmed pitta bread, to serve
Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the onion and garlic over a medium heat, stirring, until softened. Add the spices and cook for a further minute, stirring continuously.
Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring until softened and dry. Remove from the heat.
Drain and rinse the beans thoroughly and then mash well with a fork.
Stir the beans into the pan, with the fresh coriander, mixing thoroughly. Season well with salt and black pepper.
Using floured hands, form the mixture into flat burger shapes. If the mixture is too sticky to handle, mix in a little flour.
Brush the burgers with a little oil and cook on a hot beabecue for 8-10 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Serve with a crisp salad and warmed pitta bread.
