Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Tip the butter beans into a bowl and mash with a fork to form a rough purée. Set aside. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a small frying pan and add the onion and garlic. Cook over a gentle heat for 3-4 mins, until softened.

  • STEP 2

Stir the onion mixture into the butter beans, along with the cheese, then season. Shape the mixture into 4 patties, cover and chill for 10 mins.
