The Yummiest Bean Burgers EVER!

The Burger that rocks our house!

 

This recipe is an absolute winner with my family. It is super easy to throw together so when I have run out of inspiration after a crazy night of the boy’s teeball or soccer training these are sure to satisfy hungry tummies! Nutritionally they tick all the right boxes, high in nutrients, full of vegetables and delicious! My lovely friend Claire gave me this recipe so every time I make them I think of working out with her and how much fun burpees can be with a mad Scottish friend!  THANK YOU Scotland!

I am sure these are great in a bun but we don’t bother, we serve them with a big side salad and a plate of homemade chips and baked sweet potato. We also sometimes top them with my famous dressing ( 1 clove of garlic chopped, 1 big tsp whole grain mustard, a big swig of olive oil and a big dollop of yoghurt all whisked together) or guacamole!
