This is such a great easy go to Burger recipe, we wanted to keep all the
ingredients to items you would have in your cupboard, ideal for batch cooking
at the weekend for the week ahead and storing in the freezer to cook straight
from frozen when you need them. Burgers sorted now you just to decide what
delicious toppings to add : ) Enjoy!

 2 tbsp oil for frying
 400 g tin of kidney or black beans - 240g drained
 400 g tin of chickpeas - 240g drained
 60 g cashew nuts
 100 g cooked wholemeal couscous
 10 tbsp bread crumbs - 10g
 2 tsp onion powder
 2 tsp garlic powder
 ½ tsp chilli powder
 1 tsp salt
 4 tbsp tamari
 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
 6 tbsp veg stock
 4 tbsp rice flour

Drain and rinse the beans and chickpeas.


In a food processor add all the burger ingredients and blend until it all comes together and the cashews have been blended.


Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour. Empty the burger mixture out onto the surface and roll out into a thin layer around 1-2 cm high. To shape your burgers simply use a large scone cutter to cut out your burgers. Transfer the burgers to an airtight container, adding small sheets of parchment between the burgers to stop them sticking together. Freeze immediately and cook when needed.


To cook, heat 1Tbsp of oil over a high heat, add the burger to the pan, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, until nicely browned on each side and cooked through. Serve with your favourite toasted bun or lettuce cup and toppings. Enjoy!
