Cooking time

  • Mix all the ingredients, except the sunflower oil, in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper
    Let it rest in a bowl for a while.
  • Cut the shallots, red pepper and garlic into fine pieces and fry gently brown in olive oil.
    Add the chopped bell pepper and fry them with the lid on the pan until it is completely soft.
    Add the sugar and let it melt for a while and stir well.
    When everything is completely soft, you can puree it with the immersion blender.
    Bring it to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Heat a small layer of sunflower oil in the pan. Make small burgers out of your lima bean mixture. When the oil is hot enough, you can fry them crispy and brown on both sides in a few minutes.
