Spicy Vegan Bean Burgers
A brilliant vegan/veggie staple- easy to make, economical and open to lots of creative variations! They can be as spicy or mellow as you like. You can also add more fresh veg – eg chopped peppers, celery. So raid the fridge and get experimenting! They can be fried or oven-baked too.
For a quick lunch/supper, make them the day before and chill for 30 minutes + before cooking. Then gently fry and add all the fixings (as our US friends say!)
The recipe consists of basic storecupboard ingredients but you can tart it up with posh relishes, vegan mayo, avocado slices or whatever else you can cram between a burger bun! The burgers themselves can also be tweaked flavour-wise by varying the veg, spices and herbs – and varying the beans. Try white beans with lots of garlic or whole cooked lentils with walnuts and… oh, go on, experiment!
If you’re short of time, try our cheatin’ version!
