IngredientsIngredients

  • 1 yellow onion
  • 230 g / 8 oz mixed beans
  • 180 g / 6 oz feta cheese
  • 100 g frozen or fresh spinach
  • 3 egg
  • 1 tbsp green pesto
  • 100 ml / 3 1/2 oz flour (preferably spelt flour)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil

Cooking instructionsHow to

  1. Peel and chop 1 onion. Mix all ingredients apart from the oil in a bowl. Mix it smooth using a hand held mixer.
  2. Fry the burgers, 6 of them on medium heat in 2 tbsp oil, a few minutes on each side.
  3. Whilst you are frying, take the opportunity to do a mindfulness exercise. Take a moment to be mindful – to become aware of how your body feels. How do feet feel against the floor? Scan your body from the feet and up, how do your calves, knees, thighs feel? Continue upwards until you reach the head. Just note how your body feels today.
  4. Enjoy the burgers with a salad or, as in the picture, with Lemon scented chickpea and lentil hummus. If you are saving leftovers, cool them quickly. Spinach contains spores that can form bacteria that in turn can form nitrate. This is not dangerous for grown ups, but can be harmful for children.
