Spicy Bean Burgers

Found a new yummy recipe - the kids couldn't believe there was no meat in these burgers - they taste so good. Thanks to Ainsley for this recipe from his low fat cookbook.

....recipe to follow - too tired to blog any more!!
OK - I'm it is.
You'll need the following;- 1 tbspn vegetable oil, 1 smll onion finely chopped, 2 garlic cloves, 1 smll hot red chilli finely chopped, 100g frozen chopped spinach, thawed (or just grab some from your garden), 400g can cannellini beans, 50g fresh white breadcrumbs, 1 tspn cumin, 1 tbspn chopped fresh coriander, salt & black pepper, burger buns and salad to serve.
You;- heat a tbspn of oil in a pan and cook onion, garlic cloves, and chilli for 5 mins.
Squeeze the excess moisture out of the spinach and place in a large bowl. Mash the beans well and mix with the spinach, breadcrumbs, cumin and coriander (or just use curry powder). Add fried onion mixture and stir well.
Season to taste and with slightly wet hands, shape into 4 round burgers and pat dry with kitchen paper. Grill or shallow fry for a few minutes on each side until crisp & golden. Serve in warm or toasted burger buns with salad and low-fat yogurt mixed with fresh chopped herbs, or sour cream. (I needed to make 6 for our lot - so I also added a tin of corn kernels).
