This is a great vegetarian burger recipe and freezable too so you can make a batch and enjoy them at any time.

Ingredients

  • 3 ciabatta rolls
  • 400g tin black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp each chilli powder and sweet smoked paprika
  • Small bunch of fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Yamas! Halloumi Burger Slices (from Tesco), or similar
  • 211g Tesco Hot Tomato Salsa Dip, or similar
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced

Method

  1. In a food processor, pulse one of the rolls into fine breadcrumbs and set aside.
  2. Put the beans in a bowl and mash with a potato masher until roughly crushed. Add the breadcrumbs, spices, fresh coriander, a pinch of seasoning and enough beaten egg to bind. Shape into 2 thick burgers, then chill for 15 minutes until firm.
  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and fry the burgers for 5-6 minutes, turning once, until crisp and piping hot throughout. Remove and set aside.
  4. Sear the halloumi slices on each side for 30 seconds in the same pan. Halve and lightly toast the remaining ciabatta rolls, then spread a little of the salsa on the bottom halves. Top each with a bean burger, a slice of hot halloumi, a few slices of avocado and a dollop more of the salsa, then sandwich together with the top halves of the ciabatta rolls.
