Step 1

Sautee the onion and garlic with a little oil over medium-low heat till onions are soft and translucent. Set aside.

Step 2

In a bowl, mash butter beans coarsely with a fork. Then, add in all the remaining ingredients as well as the softened onion and garlic. Mix well to combine.

Step 3

Shape into 2 large patties, or 4 smaller ones. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to help the patties firm up.

Step 4

Dust the bean burgers with a thin layer of cornflour before cooking. Heat up vegetable oil in a pan and fry the bean burgers till they’re golden and crisp on the outside. Alternatively, bean burgers can be stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours until frying.

Step 5

Serve them hot on toasted burger baps with your favourite salad leaves or choice of relish!

Buttered sliced mushrooms and pickled cucumber slices go great with this burger!
