Description

Bean burgers are very satisfying and this recipe from Lilly Higgins works a treat. She serves her burgers with guacamole on the side. They are great with a dollop of Ballymaloe Original Relish or Ballymaloe Pepper Relish for a bit of added heat.

Ingredients

  • 460g Cooked black beans (drained)
  • 200g Sweetcorn
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon smoked or regular sea salt
  • 20g Fresh coriander (stalks and leaves finely chopped)
  • 1 Free-range egg (whisked)
  • 180g Cream crackers (crushed)
  • Ballymaloe Original Relish or Ballymaloe Pepper Relish

Method

  1. Place the garlic in a food processor and blitz until finely chopped.
  2. Add the beans, sweetcorn, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and coriander.
  3. Pulse until the mixture has been combined and some of the corn and beans have been puréed - you need to avoid the entire mixture becoming a wet mush so only blitz it a little bit.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in the egg and cracker crumbs. The mixture should combine nicely into a workable ‘dough’. This whole process can easily be done in a bowl with a potato masher or fork.
  5. Using wet hands shape into six equal sized patties.
  6. Place on a plate and cover with cling film.
  7. Leave to rest in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Heat a heavy based frying pan over a medium heat.
  9. Add a little olive oil and fry the burgers for about 4 minutes on each side until golden
  10. Serve in warmed bread rolls with sweet potato wedges, salad, sour cream, guacamole and Ballymaloe Original Relish.
