So, the burgers consist of kidney beans, butter beans, onion, garlic, dried thyme, breadcrumbs, soy sauce and lemon juice. (If anyone is really interested I can give you the measurements, but I fear most of my readers will either glaze over or die of shock if I post them here.) You basically thrown them all in a pan of olive oil for a while, shove them through the blender, shape them into burgers and fry again in the oil. (Aren't we supposed to say "saute" these days, instead of "fry"?)
After all this, the burgers were still the texture of very soggy Weetabix. Not good when you're a burger, so I bunged them in the over for a while to try to harden them up. Ignoring the impending failure, they were duly sandwiched and served with small roast (or "roasted" as they say here) potatoes. Even though I loved the taste, I have to say, as a burger, it was a rather horriying experience - the contents of the bun oozed out of all sides when the teeth dug in. All three kids reeled back in horror, looked up at me then we all burst out laughing.
I think I re-pure'ed them and used them as a dip.
('Fessing time - I haven't bought one yet, nor was I approached by the company at all to mention this product. I just thought it suited me to a tee!)
