300g cooked mash vegetables such as carrot, squash, potato, sweet potato or parsnip
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp oil
Squeeze lemon juice
Pinch paprika, mild chilli flakes
Freshly ground black pepper
4 tbsp breadcrumbs or crushed crackers (optional) for coating
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/ Gas 6
Mash the beans or chickpeas as much as you can with a potato masher
Add the mashed vegetables and garlic and any herbs that you want to use
Mix well and add lemon juice, spices or pepper to taste
The mixture then needs to be rolled into four burger-sized balls with wet hands
If you like, you can coat them with crushed crackers or breadcrumbs for extra crunch
Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil on a baking tray and place the bean burgers on top and then turn them all over so that they have a coating of a little oil on each side.
Place the baking tray in the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes, turning the burgers over midway through cooking. Allow to cool a little before serving.
