Butterbean and pesto burger recipe

I made these burgers the other night when I was looking for something tasty to put in the fresh bread buns I had baked. I have tried numerous vegetarian burger recipes over the years and have often found them to be way to bland or too spicy or just collapsing in texture.

These were the exact opposite they were flavorsome due to the pesto and the butter beans gave the burgers a robust nature. I have adapted these from a recipe in Cook Vegetarian magazine which can be found here.
