Spicy Bean Cakes

These are a favourite in our household, easy, quick, healthy and tasty.

I just do them under the grill but you can fry them, maybe coat them in a little flour first.

We have them for a mid-week dinner with salad usually, but you could try them as an starter of finger-food I guess.

2 cans cannellini beans, drained &rinsed
1 - 3 tsp Thai red curry paste (depending on strength)
2 kaffir lime leaves, finely sliced
handful coriander/basil leaves, chopped
4 spring onions, sliced
Sweet chilli sauce, to serve

Place beans in a food processor with the curry paste, lime leaves, coriander/basil and spring onions and process just until the mixture comes together.

Place rounded spoonfuls onto tray and place under hot grill for 5 - 10 minutes, turning over once.
