Beef and bean burgers
I wanted to make something slightly different with the leftover beans – normally I would just bake a jacket potato and use them as filling, or make a chilli con carne, but I just didn't fancy that today. Hence the burgers were born.

Using 250g of extra lean minced beef, I mixed in the leftover jazzy gungo peas as well as the chick pea and carrot tajine using a few quick bursts in a food processor. I wanted to retain some texture and shape of the beans still. I reckon most leftover vegetables would work very well in burgers – the beans added a nice moisture as the spices lots of taste. Shape into patties and fry in a little Fry Light.
