Ready in: 50mins
Spicy Carrot Burgers
4 large carrots
1 can cannellini beans
1¼ cup rolled oats
2 cloves minced garlic
½ lemon zest and juice
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup coriander leaves and stalks
¼ red chilli, finely chopped
½ cup breadcrumbs
½ savoy cabbage
2 spring onions
2-3 Tbsp chopped coriander leaves and stalks
Zest and juice of ½ lemon
1 clove minced garlic
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 Tbsp tahini
¼ tsp salt
6 burger buns (optional)
2 Tbsp mayonnaise (optional)
Preheat oven to 200oC. Line two oven trays with baking paper. Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil.
Cook carrots in pot of water for about 15 minutes, until tender. Drain well and set aside to cool for about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse cannellini beans.
While carrots cook, finely shred cabbage until you have 3 cups worth; peel and grate carrot; thinly slice spring onion. In a large bowl, mix all tahini slaw ingredients and set aside.
When carrots are cooled, add all spicy carrot burger ingredients to a food processor, pulse for about 1 minute, until combined. Alternatively, in a large bowl, mash carrots and cannellini beans, roughly chop pumpkin seeds and mix all spicy carrot burger ingredients together. The mixture will be slightly chunky.
Using clean, damp hands and a ½ cup measure, shape mixture into balls, then fatten to 1cm-thick patties. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large-fry pan on medium heat. Cook burgers for about 3 minutes each side, until golden. Place burgers onto first prepared tray and bake for 10-12 minutes, until cooked through.
Slice burger buns (if using) in half and place, opened, on second prepared tray. Warm in oven for 3-4 minutes.
To serve, spread mayonnaise onto burger bun (if using), fill with plenty of tahini slaw and top with spicy carrot burger.
- Burger buns are completely optional but sesame or wholemeal pair well.
- To spice things up add a drizzle of your favourite hot sauce to the slaw.
- To speed things up patties can be prepared in advance.
