Method

  • Put the beans in a large mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Add all of the other ingredients, bar the oil, and mix well to combine.
  • Using wet hands form into 12 patties and lightly dust each with flour.
  • In a large frying pan, heat half the oil and fry 6 of the patties at one time for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Keep warm in a low oven while you cook the other six patties.
  • While the patties are cooking whip up a mixed salad with whatever veggies you have in the fridge. Dress with an extra virgin olive oil vinaigrette.
  • Serve the patties with the salad and some tomato relish.
