MUSHROOM, FETA AND ASPARAGUS BURGERS
This is great vegetarian streetfood which tastes great made at home.
Puree the beans, garlic, lemon juice, 30 millilitres of the oil and the zest in a food processor or mash all together well.
Stir in the chives, taste and season. Reserve.
Heat a barbecue or ridged grill (or frying pan) over moderate to high heat.
Brush the remaining oil over the blanched asparagus and the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and barbecue, grill or fry for about 4 minutes on each side until well browned.
Spread the insides of the buns with the bean puree and place some watercress, some asparagus, a mushroom and some feta on each of the bottoms.
Place the tops of the buns on the filling and serve.
