I really like veg burgers. I probably prefer them to meat burgers, if I'm honest. But to get the right kind of mixture has been a bit of a mission. Here is one I really enjoy. The mixture is quite soft, so you need to be a bit careful, but the taste, as well as the result, is really good!
RED BEAN AND MUSHROOM BURGERS
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 t ground cumin
1 t ground coriander
½ 1 turmeric
1 ½ cups finely chopped mushrooms
400g can red kidney beans drained and rinsed
2 T chopped coriander
Wholemeal flour for forming the burgers
Salt and pepper
Fry onion and garlic until softened. Add cumin, ground coriander and turmeric and cook for a further minute, stirring constantly.
Add mushrooms and cook, stirring until softened and dry. Mash the beans with a fork and add to the mushroom mixture. Add fresh coriander, salt and pepper and mix well.
Using floured hands, form mixture into 4 flat burgers. If the mixture is too sticky, add flour.
Brush with oil and grill for 8 – 10 minutes, until golden brown.
