(Makes 10 burgers. Can be frozen individually wrapped)
2 medium sweet potato, peeled, diced, boiled, then mashed.
1 onion, red or white, finely chopped (I used red)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chipotle paste (optional)
2 cans butter beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp flour (I obviously used GF)
Lightly fry the onion, garlic and flavourings until the onions are softened.
Lightly mash the butter beans.
Add the onion mixture and the sweet potato.
Mix thoroughly together - I used the masher.
Stir in the flour until well combined.
Form into 10 burgers on a plate and chill for at least an hour.
Fry in a little oil in a frying pan until brown and crisped on the outside and warmed through on the inside.
Serve in a bun, GF or otherwise, with lots of salad, home made salsa and chips
I guess you could also coat them in a breadcrumb mixture, panko, polenta or semolina and cook them on a hot baking tray in the oven........
We had an exciting discovery yesterday - the first egg from my new ladies. It's tiny as you can see by the comparison photo, but they do get bigger as they get used to what they're doing and get older. I'm not sure who laid it, but I doubt it was Ginger as she spent most of the day trying to escape and trot round the garden! She did make me laugh though because when I stomped up to her with my cross face on, she didn't run away, but just hunkered down looking contrite, so I was able to pick her up, give her a stern talking to and pop her back in the run. My previous escapee used to give me the right run around!
