Mixed Beans: 1 can

Seasoned Bread Crumbs: 1/4 th cup

Egg-- 1 (can be substituted with 1tbsp of corn flour)

Good Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Frying


In a bowl mix refried beans and mixed beans and mash them. Three tbsp of beans from each can should make 2 burgers. You can use more if you want. Mix chopped onions, finely chopped garlic, salt and pepper and mash again. Add egg (if you are using corn flour you should omit this step). Add breadcrumbs, and using your hands sculpt two burger patties. Dust with corn flour. Heat 2tbsp of olive oil in a non-stick pan and fry the burger patties in medium heat for five to six minutes each side. Allow them to cook thoroughly. Turn them every five minutes, add oil if needed. After the patties have browned considerably allover, carefully take them out and place them on a bun with lettuce, tomato and cheese.
