Accessories you need



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 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.
