Flavoured with fresh seasonal produce, this hearty veggie burger recipe is a treat for everyone. It’s also incredibly easy to make, so get the little ones in the kitchen to help prepare – little kids can help mix the ingredients in the bowl and shape the burgers, big kids can help with the grating and chopping. Everyone can then assemble their own burger with a choice of toppings.
FOR THE VEGGIE BURGERS
200g grated carrot
100g grated/finely chopped onions
100g grated courgette
100g grated potato
100g finely chopped mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
50g pine nuts
2 tbsp olive oil
250g gram flour
2 tsp salt
½ tsp white pepper
4 large free range eggs
FOR THE TOPPINGS
Grated cheddar cheese/feta/goats cheese
Your favourite chutney or sauce
Mix everything together to achieve a thick batter – the consistency of minced beef. Depending on the water content of the veggies – you may need to add an extra sprinkle of gram flour.
Using wet hands, mould into burger shapes (whatever size suits you – mini ones are lovely!)
Carefully fry for approximately 6 minutes each side – over a medium heat.
Serve with buns and your topping of choice for a burger feast.
