Units: US | Metric

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon basil
- 1Gently fry onion and garlic in oil and then add the green pepper and fry until soft (about 5 mins).
- 2Add Chilli and Chilli powder and fry for a further 2 minutes Transfer to a mixing bowl.
- 3add the beans, egg, tomato,salt and pepper, basil and half of the bread crumbs to the onions and mix well mashing together (half the mixture can go in a food processor to give the mixture a smoother texture which helps the patties hold together).
- 4Shape the mixture into the size and shape patties that you want.
- 5coat in the remaining breadcrumbs and fry in a frying pan until golden on each side turing occasionally.
- 6Serving suggestion - in a bun with salsa, salad, coleslaw or cheese.
- 8Variations - any beans can be used, nuts can be added for added protien and crunch, cheese is nice with them (parmasan gives them a nice flavor) Basically anything goes! - my daughter loves them withut the chilli in a bun and served with tomato ketchup!
