Method

  1. Peel onion, finely slice into rounds and place in small bowl with balsamic and a pinch of sea salt. Set aside.
  2. Halve, deseed and finely chop chilli. Trim and finely chop spring onions. Place both in a mixing bowl. Drain beans and pat dry with kitchen paper. Add to the bowl, along with breadcrumbs.
  3. Season, then scrunch the bean mixture together with clean hands. Divide into 3 balls, flatten into patties and place 2 in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes (wrap and freeze the spare for another day).
  4. In a small bowl, combine half the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, and yoghurt. Season well. Trim the kale and mix into dressing with the rocket. Put aside.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, fry burgers for 4 minutes on each side, or until golden. If they colour too quickly, reduce the heat.
  6. Slice the tomato and mozzarella into rounds and open the buns.
  7. When the burgers are almost cooked, top each one with mozzarella. Cover the burgers with a lid for 2 minutes to melt the cheese.
  8. Set another pan over a high heat and warm the bun halves, cut side down, for 2 minutes or until toasted.
  9. Lift the onions out of the balsamic with a fork.
  10. Pop slices of tomato on each bun base, and a burger on top. Top with balsamic onions and the bun lid. Serve kale salad alongside.
