Three bean burger meal

This is one of my families favourite summer suppers.It's very easy,cheap and nourishing and always gets eaten up.It's a great way of using up any left over vegetables cooked or not and boosting the nutrient content for your family.
Three bean burgers.....
  • 1/2 can Kidney beans drained
    1/2 can Cannellini beans drained
    1/2 can Butter beans drained
    3-4 sprigs of flat leaf parsley
    1 clove garlic
    1/2 vegetable stock cube
  • (dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water)
    1 tablespoon tomato puree
    2 spears of fresh broccoli- chopped
    (Olive oil to cook the burgers)

  • Bean salad ....

    1/2 can kidney beans
    1/2 can cannellini beans
    1/2 can butter beans
    2-3 sprigs flat leaf parsley
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    Pinch sea salt
    Place all ingredients in a large bowl and give it a stir.Chill
    until ready to serve.
  • Place all the ingredients (not the olive oil) in a food processor and whizz until slighty chunky.
  • Prep..

                            Heat a fry pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.Form the mixture into small burger shapes and place in frying pan.

    • Cook for approx 3-4 minutes on each side,they should turn a golden brown.You need to be gentle in the flipping of these as they are delicate and can fall apart if too rough.Serve them hot or cold with mayo or a good mustard!I like to add a tasty bean salad and fresh corn on the cob to complete the summer look . Great for picnics or simply sitting outside in youer gardens.Put them into buns,wraps or simply with fresh salad .No worry about meat in the heat!
