Trying to run things down leads to some interesting combinations. There was a particularly strange attempt to make macaroni cheese with pizza cheese (it doesn't work at all) and a more successful attempt at these veggie burgers made with an unusual ingredient. It's based, in part, on Becca's Carrot and white bean cutlets that I mentioned in my previous post. Sometimes gambles work and this
Stats: makes four burgers. Fifteen minutes preparation time, forty-five minutes cooking time.
one grated courgette, squeeze as much of the 'juice' out as you can.
one 400g tin of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
100g grated cheddar
one tablespoon of dijon mustard
two tablespoons of sesame seeds
tablespoon of coriander - I used frozen this time but fresh is better
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Mash the kidney beans roughly, leaving some beans whole. Use a pestle and mortar or a food processor to turn the Ryvita into crumbs.
Combine all of the ingredients.
Divide the mixture into quarters and shape the burgers.
