Instructions Checklist

  • Place beans in a medium bowl; mash with a potato masher until a coarse paste forms. Add breadcrumbs, scallions, egg, carrot, cayenne, tahini, and bulgur. Season with salt and pepper, and mix to combine. Form mixture into 4 patties, each about 1 inch thick.

  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-low. Cook patties until browned and firm, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Serve on English muffins with tahini mayonnaise and lettuce.

I have made this quite a few times and I have skipped on the English muffins and gone towards half a pita . The recipe for the tahini mayo is a bit excessive in quantity. I think you can get away with half of the suggested quantity.

I've made this three or four times. It is easy, quick, and tasty.
