Jamie's Brilliant Veggie Burgers

I've decided I'm not a massive fan of broad beans, even though I grow them every year. It's a texture things rather than taste, so mushed up in a burger like this is perfect and these burgers are brilliant, super tasty and filling and very very green, so they must be healthy right?!

Brilliant Veggie Burgers (from Jamie Oliver)
(Makes 4)

200g frozen sweetcorn
200g frozen peas
200g frozen broad beans
½ bunch coriander
75g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
good pinch ground cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
sea salt freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp sunflower seeds

Remove the veg from the freezer, then set aside to defrost slightly for around 15 mins. Add the veg, coriander (stalks and all), flour, cumin and cayenne to a food processor. Season well, then blitz to a rough paste. Add the sesame and sunflower seeds, then pulse to combine. Divide and shape the mixture into four equal-sized patties, roughly 2cm thick. Add the patties to a lightly flour-dusted tray, turning them over in the flour to coat. Place in the freezer for around 10 mins to firm up.

Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, then add the burgers. Cook for 10 to 12 mins, or until cooked through and golden, turning halfway and pressing down with a fish slice to get them nice and crispy.
