Meatless Monday:Curried bean burgers with oyster mushroom side

Serves 2

For the burgers

1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 tbsp organic olive oil
1 carton organic cannelloni beans, drained and lightly mashed
1 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp chickpea (gram) flour

For the mushroom side

150g oyster mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp organic olive oil 
1 tbsp tamari

coriander to garnish (optional)

Fry the onion in the olive oil for 2-3 minutes.  Add the beans, curry powder and chickpea flour, mix and warm through.  Shape into 2 burgers or 4 small.  Place on a greased baking tray and place in an oven at 200 degrees for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile fry the mushrooms in the olive oil for 1-2 minutes.  Add the tamari and heat through.  Serve the burgers with the mushroom side and a wholemeal roll or rye bread. Garnish with coriander if using.

Oyster mushrooms cook very quickly and are therefore ideal for stir-frying.  They have antioxidant and antibacterial properties.  They are also rich in vitamins and minerals such as zinc, iron, calcium, vitamin C, vitamins B1 and B2.
