Lunch Club – Sarah’s Mixed Bean Burger

Having a vegetarian meal makes me feel good all over! It creates a sense of satisfaction akin to what I feel when I know I have done something right!

So, it was quite a treat for me today to have something vegetarian for lunch!

Greek yoghurt on top, then cucumber, then beetroot, then tomato, then the bean burger served on Turkish bread

Sarah has prepared a mixed bean burger for lunch. It was served with beetroot, some fresh cucumber salad and then topped with Greek style yoghurt.

It was quite tasty indeed! A meal like this could actually turn me vegetarian full time!

Here’s the recipe (courtesy of miss Sarah):

450g mixed beans (either tinned or pre soaked, then mashed however you like)

1 onion (chopped and fried)
2/3 cloves garlic (crushed and fried)
1 tsp cumin (added to the onion and garlic)
chilli (as much as you like! added to the onion and garlic)

(add all to the beans)

1 carrot (grated, added to the beans)

you can also add a little tomato sauce if you like the flavour, or use half and half beans and brown lentils.

shape in to burgers or rissoles, then chill for 1 hour. fry in a little oil, or on a hot plate, or bake in the oven.

serve with . . . anything you like!
