Method

  1. Heat grill to high. Tip the beans into a large bowl, then roughly crush with a potato masher. Add the breadcrumbs, chilli powder, coriander stalks and ½ the leaves, egg and 2 tbsp salsa, season to taste, then mix together well with a fork.

  2. Divide the mixture into 6, then wet your hands and shape into burgers. The burgers can now be frozen. Place on a non-stick baking tray, then grill for 4-5 mins on each side until golden and crisp. To cook from frozen, bake at 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 for 20-30 mins until hot through.

  3. While the burgers are cooking, mix the remaining coriander leaves with the yogurt, lime juice and a good grind of black pepper. Split the buns in half and spread the bases with some of the yogurt. Top each with leaves, avocado, onion, a burger, another dollop of the lime yogurt and some salsa, then serve.

About the easiest thing to make on this website. If making for two freeze the remainder in burger sized pieces

This is such a lovely healthy alternative to a Mexican dinner if you want to be sociable but still keep on dieting! I added a little bit of tabasco,paprika and chopped red onions to the mix. I agree with previous comments regarding how well the yogurt salsa elevates the whole dish! Loved it! Needs to cook a little longer for my taste..I like it crunchy!

Added more home-made salsa and seasoning (black and red chili powder, Paprika, salt) and it was really tasty!

Very bland - I ended up adding liquid smoke to turn them a bit BBQ-y v quick and easy though

Although easy to make, I found these very dry - much prefer lentil/mushroom burgers for a vegetarian burger option.

Made these with my boyfriend along with homemade salsa and the lime yoghurt - it was delicious, but I think it definitely needs the salsa and yoghurt to add flavour, otherwise it would have been rather bland, although the texture is good. The yoghurt is absolutely delicious with the burgers, so don't leave it out. Simple and cheap!

Delicious! My partner would have preferred them a little spicier but I loved them as they were ... and at less than £2 per portion they're good for the budget too!!!!

Unfortunately these didn't hold. I had to add an extra egg, and make mini beanelettes... sigh!
