Step by Step Instructions

Step 1 – Start To Make Bean Burger

Peel and finely dice the onion. Add oil to a pan and heat, cook the diced onion for 5 minutes. Add the sliced mushroom and cook for 5-7 minutes until all of the mushroom cooking liquid has evaporated. Add the crushed garlic, ground coriander and tomato purée and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Step 2 – Cook Peas & Heat Oven

Take off the heat and stir through the cooked flamingo peas, cheese and chopped coriander. Using a wooden spoon or potato masher, crushed the peas and combine the ingredients. The mixture should look like a chunky mash. Shape into six even sized burgers and put them in the fridge for at least 1 hour to firm up.

Heat the oven to 170C

Step 3 – Cook Burgers

Add polenta to a mixing bowl and coat each burger. Heat a frying pan to a medium heat, fry each burger in batches for 3 minutes on each side. Add the burgers to a flat baking tray and cook in the oven for 12 minutes.

Step 4 – Perfect Jammy Eggs 

To make a perfect soft ‘jammy’ style egg. Add water to a saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the eggs and cook for 5.5 minutes. Drain the water and peel the eggs and set to one side.

Step 5 – Make Turkish Eggs

Whilst the eggs are cooking, heat the yogurt and cook the butter. Add the yogurt, lemon zest and crushed garlic to a heat proof bowl. Place the bowl on top of a pan of lightly simmering water and gently heat for 4 minutes. Melt the butter in a pan, once foaming add the paprika and chilli flakes and cook for 1 minute and then remove from the heat.

Step 6 – Plate Up 

Plate up with a layer of yogurt on the base of the plate, burger in the middle. Drizzle over the melted butter and top with a perfectly cooked egg.
