I was so used to eating cannellini beans in salads all the time and I love them so much (they’re possibly my top choice of bean), that I wanted to make them more than just a ‘salad bean’. So I created this recipe to make the bean outshine the green – for once.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 x 400g tin cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 courgette
3 tablespoons coconut oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 spring onions, chopped
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
few sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
1/2 tablespoon any wholegrain flour
3 tablespoons polenta
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Place the beans in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Gently mash the beans until the paste is fairly thick and dough-like. Take the courgette and grate it evenly into the bowl.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of the coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the garlic and onions with the apple cider vinegar until the onions are soft, then tip the mixture into the bowl with the mashed beans. Mix well, checking the seasoning and adjusting to taste. Add the parsley, flour and 1 tablespoon of the polenta to the bowl. If your mixture is still sticking to the sides of the bowl, add a bit more polenta.
  3. Separate the mixture into four and shape each one into patties – they should stay whole without cracking or falling apart. Coat the patties in the rest of the polenta, ensuring an even coverage.
  4. Heat the rest of the coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the patties for 5 minutes on each side (you can make your salad while you wait!). When the patties are ready, they will be crunchy and golden brown – perfect for eating alongside your healthy greens!
