Tasty veggie butter bean burgers that are perfect for all the family.



a large can of cooked butterbeans (about 410g)

1 large carrot

1 large onion (white or red)

6 tablespoons flour (preferably chickpea/gram flour, otherwise plain)

2 teaspoons ground coriander

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 egg

salt and ground black pepper

Low-calorie cooking spray for frying


Open the can of butterbeans and drain well through a sieve or colander.

Place them in the large bowl and mash well with the fork.

Trim the ends of the carrot and peel it. Grate it coarsely and add to the beans.

Peel the onion, chop it fairly finely, and then add it to the mixture.

Add 4 tablespoons of the flour, together with the coriander and cumin, a pinch of salt, and a good sprinkling of black pepper.

Crack the egg into the bowl, and stir all the ingredients until well mixed.

Put the remaining 2 tablespoons of flour onto the plate and spread it around.

Shape the mixture, by hand, into eight ball shapes, then flatten gently to make burgers.

Place on the floured plate.

Turn them over so that they are floured on both sides.

Heat enough low-calorie cooking spray in the pan to cover the base (keep an eye on it).

Place the burgers carefully in the pan and allow them to sizzle for 5-8 minutes until browned underneath.

Then turn them gently, adding a little more cooking spray if the base of the pan is dry and the burgers are starting to stick.

Fry for a further 5-8 minutes.
