Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 450g vegan soya mince
  • 200g vegan sausage (chorizo ideally)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 68g wholewheat flour
  • 64g ground almonds
  • 1-2 tbsp hemp protein
  • Bute Island Sheese Mature Cheddar slices
  • Fried onions

Method:

  1. Place a pan on medium heat, pour the olive oil and allow it to heat, throw in the chopped onion and garlic and lightly fry until golden.
  2. Add the soya mince and the chunks of the vegan chorizo and lightly fry with the onions and garlic, add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Transfer the mince into a powerful food processor and pulse until the ingredients are completely mushed together, pour this mixture into a mixing bowl.
  4. Add the flour, ground almonds and hemp protein. Combine them together using your hands (add more/less flour depending on the texture). Adjust seasoning, if needed.
  5. To make the burgers you can use a burger press, or simply shape them by rolling into a ball and squashing them into a patty.
  6. Place the patties on greaseproof paper on a baking tray. Pop in the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and add the cheddar slices, avocado fried onions and beetroot.
