Standard batch serves 4

Yields1 Serving
 1 can Five bean salad
 1 can taco mixed beans
 1 cup breadcrumbs
 2 cups grated carrots
 1 tablespoon Fajita mix
1

Pour both types of tinned beans into a mixing bowl.
Add the grated carrot, taco or fajita mix and breadcrumbs and mix well with your hands.
Tip out the mixture onto a clean flat surface and divide into 6 paddies.
If cooking straight away, make into thick paddies and cook in a hot frying pan with a small amount of oil.

2

Ready for the Freezer
If freezing without cooking first, divide into paddies and freeze in a freezer bag (taking out as much air as possible) and freeze flat on a tray. These burgers can easily break so care is needed when handling.

Freeze along-side a bag of buns, portioned out frozen potato wedges or frozen corn on the cob, for a full meal that's easy to grab from the freezer

Ready to Eat
Defrost and cook in frying pan over a medium heat until each side is golden brown and inside is piping hot, usually 4 minutes each side.

Make sure that reheated food is thoroughly cooked all the way through. If you’re cooking or reheating meat, cut it open with a clean knife to check it is piping hot all the way through – it should be steaming. www.foodsafe.eu
