Sunday BBQ: Spicy Beanburgers

I was looking for a great recipe to feature for this week's Sunday BBQ when I came across these Spicy Beanburgers. At first I was a little skeptical, could beanburgers really replace hamburgers? After giving it some thought, I completely changed my mind. If anything would make for a great "meaty" substitute, it would be the cannellini beans. Besides, after checking out the photo I was sold immediately. How could I pass on something that looks so delicious?!? To check out the recipe and make your own vegetarian version of burger heaven,

1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 small hot red chillies, finely chopped
100g frozen chopped spinach, thawed
400g can cannellini beans
50g fresh white breadcrumbs
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp Coriander, chopped
salt and pepper
burger buns, relish and salad, to serve

  1. Heat the oil in a small saucepan and cook the onion, garlic and chilli for 5 minutes until softened. Squeeze the excess moisture out of the spinach and place in a large bowl.
  2. Mash the beans well and mix with the spinach, breadcrumbs, cumin and coriander. Add the fried onion mixture and stir well together.
  3. Season to taste and shape into four round burgers. Grill or shallow fry for a few minutes on each side until crisp and golden. Serve in burger buns with relish and salad.

Ohhh, I think those look and sound deelish. Not that I'd turn down a healthy bison burger or lean hamburger, either!

I just made these for supper.... boy were they good. I did use dried coriander instead of the fresh... maybe a teaspoon... I didnt really measure. They're super yummy - and I dont normally like spicy food!
