Serves: 6
Cooking Time: 30 mins



  • 2 x 410g tins mixed beans, drained
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 60ml (¼ cup) breadcrumbs
  • 100g butternut, boiled
  • and coarsely chopped
  • 50g feta, crumbled
  • olive oil, for frying
  • 6 rolls, sliced

For the patties, place the beans in a large mixing bowl, season and blitz with an electric hand blender until smooth. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and form into 6 patties.


Heat a little oil in a pan and fry the burgers until cooked and golden, about 10 minutes on each side.


Spread the inside of the rolls with the hummus. Top with a warm patty and a few slices of tomato and cucumber. Serve immediately.
