I use rolled oats but to make this gluten free you can use quinoa flakes instead

Ensure that a firm feta cheese is used, such as sheep's feta and crumble prior to adding to the ingredients. A soft feta will turn mushy

Instead of feta cheese you could use Tofu

If a smaller quantity is required, just halve the recipe ingredients

    Made the burgers today and had the same comments as JoEastcott below. Ended up putting the feta into the mix and used basil as per the ingredient list not the recipe preparation section which said mint. The mix was very dry and didn't hold so I wasn't sure what binding agent was in place therefore I added an egg. Our mix made 15 reasonably sized burgers. Adding veggie stock would be a good idea.

    Made this today with fresh beetroot from the garden....a few questions if I may - in the ingredients list you have a 'handful of basil', yet the Method states 'mint'. I used mint and was happy with the flavour.
    Also, I only had canned lentils available, and they worked well. In your 'TIPS' you mention using a firm feta. At what point do you use feta? Is this when assembling the burger with salad & bun?
    A lovely nutty texture. Think I'll add a spoonful of my homemade stock next time. Will definitely make again when we have an abundance of beetroot. Thank you for sharing as I love this kind of food.
