Cheddar, bean and spinach burgers

Cheddar, bean and spinach burgers


  1. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a small frying pan and fry the chopped onion and garlic for 5 mins until softened. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, put the mashed potato in a large microwave-safe bowl and cook on defrost for 3-4 mins, stirring once, until thoroughly defrosted.
  3. Pulse the drained butter beans in a blender or food processor until roughly minced. Add the beans to the mashed potato with the fried onion and garlic, egg, spinach, cheese and thyme. Mix well, then season to taste.
  4. Divide and shape the mixture into 8 patties, then coat in breadcrumbs.
  5. Heat the remaining oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the burgers for 1-2 mines on each side until golden.
  6. Serve burgers in bread buns with tomato salsa and lettuce.
