Butterbean burger recipe.

I am currently experimenting with low glycemic index (GI), slow carb recipes in preparation for the biggest diet overhauling of our lives and this is one of the results.

Butterbean burgers :D

# – Butterbean burgers.

In fact, even before we developed the awareness about low GI food, I’ve made bean mash before, which is an example of a healthy, low GI food.

Beans are really, really versatile (and tasty) as you shall discover in this recipe.

The ingredients

  • 1 can of butter beans, drained
  • 50 grams of blue cheese (if you don’t like strong tasting cheese you can replace with cheese of your choice)
  • 50 grams of parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 1 medium shallot, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • A dash of salt & black pepper

# – First, throw the butterbeans into a blender or food processor.

# – Followed by the grated parmesan cheese.

# – And then the blue cheese.

# – Pour in 3 tablespoons of olive oil. And blitz till the mixture is combined and creamy.

# – Pour mixture onto a plate or a bowl. Fold the chopped shallots in and season with salt/pepper.

# – Shape the mixture in patties.

# – Pan fry the patties for 5 minutes or till golden brown on each side.

# – Serve with cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and yogurt. Butterbean burgers, DONE!

This is a far healthier alternative to fried mash potato! The burger was crispy on the outside, creamy and flavoursome on the inside.

The boyfriend loved it! His only complaint was that I didn’t make more. If you would like to have this as a main dinner for two, feel free to double the recipe for a bigger portion.
