Maria’s cottage cheese burgers with kidney beans, leek and parsley

Marias cottage cheese burgersThe best recipes are borrowed. I spotted a friend eating these burgers in her lunchbox and had to get the recipe. They are one of my favourites with a lot of flavourful nuances: leek, parsley, nutmeg and mustard.
Don’t kill these tasty burgers with ketchup! Instead, serve them with a fresh salad on the side. You can also deep freeze them for future needs.
