Easy Mushroom Burgers

I love portobello mushrooms, they have a "meaty" texture which is why my meat eating buddies love these!

Ingredients for 4 burgers
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • feta cheese, broken into small chunks
  • dash of olive oil (we used vegan feta which was so yum!)
  • handful of fresh herbs, chopped eg parsley; chives
  • 4 large burger buns
  • large lettuce leaves
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 large avocados, sliced
  • your choice of condiment: chutney; mayonnaise
Method
  1. Heat a grill on high - I've done these in an oven and the BBQ
  2. Trim the stem on the mushrooms and top with feta and herbs then drizzle with olive oil
  3. Grill on high until cheese is slightly brown on top
  4. If your buns aren't fresh, throw them on or under the grill for a minute or two
  5. Serve with whatever fresh produce you have on hand. We are lucky to still have lettuce in the garden which our dog has mostly eaten but apparently doesn't like lettuce! Enjoy

Pumpkin & Haloumi Burgers

My meat loving partner cooked these up and they were better than any meat burger I've had...well except for the ones I've made ;)

serves 4
takes 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 650g peeled butternut pumpkin, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
  • 2 teaspoons zaatar
  • 400g can chickpeas, rinsed, drained, mashed with a fork
  • 1 cup (70g) fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 200g thick Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon, plus 1 tablespoon juice
  • 250g haloumi, sliced
  • 4 bread rolls, toasted
  • Butter lettuce leaves and tomato slices, to serve
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Place pumpkin on a baking tray, drizzle with oil, scatter with 1 teaspoon zaatar and season. Roast for 20-25 minutes until
    tender and lightly caramelised. Transfer to a bowl and mash to
    a coarse paste with chickpeas, crumbs, parsley and egg. Shape into 4 patties. Chill for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the yoghurt, tahini and lemon zest and juice in a bowl. Season and set aside until ready to serve.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a frypan over medium heat. Fry the patties, turning once, for 6-8 minutes until golden. Keep warm.
  5. Wipe the pan clean, then return to medium heat. Place the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the frypan, add the haloumi and cook, turning, for 1-2 minutes until golden.
  6. To assemble, spread the bottoms of the toasted rolls with the yoghurt mixture, then top with lettuce, tomato, haloumi, a pumpkin patty and an extra dollop of the yoghurt mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon zaatar, then replace the roll tops and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Lamb, Chilli & Pesto Burgers

You can use my poor man's pesto recipe here and throw in whatever herbs are on hand. Just think lamb and ... go together. In this case my little garden is full of coriander, rosemary, mint and some big red chilli so they all ended up in these.

Ingredients
takes 20 minutes
serves 2-4 (one was enough for me but Trevor managed two)

Pattie ingredients:-
  • 500g lean lamb mince
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • handful fresh coriander leaves & rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 large red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped (my chilli's aren't that hot so use as much or little as you prefer)
  • Salt & pepper to season
  • 2-4 burger buns
  • salad filling such as: cos lettuce, avocado, tomato, cucumber
  • onion chutney
 Mint yoghurt to serve (optional):-
  • yoghurt
  • fresh mint
Method 
  1. Place all the pattie ingredients in a bowl and mix together
    then divide into 4 patties.
  2. Place a small amount of oil into a fry pan and heat on high. Place patties into the pan and flatten slightly, cook on high for between 4-6 minutes each side. I like mine slightly pink in the middle. Let them rest covered for 5 minutes.
  3. Assemble the burgers: split the burger buns & place under grill to warm through. Place all the different fillings on the table and let everyone make their own creations. Enjoy!
