A tasty and low fat alternative to burgers made with meat.


400g tin aduki beans, drained and rinsed 400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed 1 onion roughly chopped 6 salted anchovies in olive oil, drained and chopped 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard Salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 eggs 2-3 tbsp plain flour, plus extra for dusting 2-3 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil for frying Toasted buns, crisp lettuce and tomato ketchup


  1. Put the drained beans and chickpeas in a food processor and pulse several times until the beans are broken up.
  2. Add the onion, anchovies and mustard to the food processor and season well with a little salt and pepper, bearing in mind that the anchovies are salty. Pulse again a few times. You want the mixture to be well combined, but not sloppy. Now add the eggs and pulse again until combined. Add the flour (just enough to bind the burgers) and pulse until incorporated.
  3. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Once the oil is hot, spoon out a portion of the bean mixture (it should make 6 burgers) and using lots of flour on your hands, shape into a flattened burger before adding to the pan. Fry undisturbed for 2-3 minutes on each side until firm and golden. Cook in batches of 2 or 3 burgers at a time, forming the burgers as you go and adding more oil when needed.
  4. Serve hot in a toasted bun with lettuce and tomato ketchup.
