Mushroom & Butter Bean Patties
Prep time
Total time
Here's a lovely way to get your mushrooms and beans in. Mushrooms are very nutritious, and so are beans, so there you have it, power patties :-) They freeze well too. You can make them spicier by adding more chilli, of course!
These amounts make about 9 patties, which is a nice serve for 2 persons, with a salad on the side.
Recipe type: patties
Cuisine: vegan
Serves: 2 persons
You need
  • 1 can of butter beans (Lima beans)
  • 5 medium mushrooms
  • 1 large clove of elephant garlic (about 20gr)
  • 50gr red onion
  • 4 tbsp (gluten free) bread crumbs and more for coating
  • juice and zest of half a lemon
  • ½ tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 1 small chilli, finely chopped (if you like it hot, leave the seeds in)
  • about 8 mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2-4 tbsp of chickpea flour (or another flour) - depending on how moist the mixture is
  • a little bit of coconut oil for cooking (as much as you can get away with - it depends on your the type of pan you use)
I served it with this dip:
  • ¼ cup of coconut yoghurt
  • ¼ tsp curry powder or smoked paprika or any other flavour you fancy
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 clove of garlic
To do
  1. mash the beans quite fine in a bowl with a fork, adding in the bread crumbs, lemon juice & zest, salt, chilli, chopped mint and minced garlic
  2. in your food processor, blend the mushrooms plus the chopped onions to a thick, medium fine paste
  3. add the paste to the bean mash, add tahini and mix with a spoon
  4. add flour; 2-4 table spoons, so the mixture doesn't stick to your hands - that's the only purpose of the flour so if you don't need it, you can omit it
  5. place in fridge for 20 minutes or longer, then place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl, form balls out of the bean mixture and coat them in bread crumbs, gently pressing them into patties
  6. when all done, heat some oil in a skillet and cook the patties until brown, about 8 minutes on each side
  7. for the dressing, mix the ¼ cup coconut yoghurt with 1 clove of garlic, ¼ tsp curry powder, a pinch of salt, and that's it.
