The perfect healthy dinner or lunch that’s packed with colourful flavour!
For the salsa:
In a medium sized bowl, stir together the tomatoes, chives/scallions, jalapeno, olive oil, lime juice, and salt. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes before eating so the flavours can mingle.
For the patties:
In a large bowl, mash the beans using a potato masher or a fork (smooshing them against the side of the bowl works best for me). Add the garlic, lemon juice and zest, scallions, bread crumbs, eggs, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and stir well until combined.
Form the bean mixture into patties about the size of a hamburger bun. Heat a non-stick or well-seasoned cast iron pan over medium heat. Drizzle a little vegetable oil into the pan and wait until it’s hot and rippled. Fry the patties, 2 or 4 at a time for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until nice and deep golden brown. Remove them from the pan to a paper towel lined pan while you repeat with the remaining patties.
For the pesto:
Fill a large bowl (one big enough to fit the asparagus into when it’s done cooking) with ice and water and set it in the sink.
Fill a small pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook for 1 minute until bright green. Remove the asparagus from the pan and plunge it into the bowl of ice water for a few minutes to stop the cooking process.
Add the asparagus, walnuts, olive oil, Parmesan and salt to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Taste for seasonings. If it’s too thick, add a little more olive oil until you reach desired consistency.
Serve patties topped with pesto and salsa.
