Sluttishly Vegetarian: Five a Day Feta Burgers


I'm always thinking about my five a day, some days I hit the five with no problems and others I'll be lucky if I've ate one. If you're feeling a little under vegged then this is the answer, a great way to use up the remnants of the veg draw and fantastic way to get your five a day, well almost. There are five vegetables in here, six if you count the potato (that doesn't really count does it?) and if you served this up with a salad you could even pack in more.

Makes about 8 burgers, enough for 2 people or more if you bulk it out with salads and burger accessories.

You'll need:
  • 3 medium sized potatoes, peeled, boiled then mashed
  • 1 courgette, grated
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • A big handful of spinach
  • A cup of frozen peas
  • A third of a block of Feta, chopped and crumbled
  • Salt and pepper
Make it!
  • Fry the onion until lightly browned (I always soften my onions first in the microwave to save to much slaving over a pan).
  • Add the grated carrot, fry for a minute.
  • Add courgette, fry for another minute.
  • Add peas and spinach and cook until the spinach has wilted slightly. Season generously.
  • Mix vegetables and Feta into mashed potato.
  • Form into burgers and fry in a little oil until crispy and brown.
  • Serve in a bun with salsa and salad.

  5. Ooh they look good! And I have all the ingredients for them in my fridge at the moment too, that almost never happens. I've set myself a challenge to cook every dinner from scratch during National Vegetarian Week.

  6. Hmm I have everything apart from the spinach, but I do have cabbage, would that work?!

  7. Lisa, make them! make them! x
    Ms C - they're good, make them!
    Gemmie - cabbage would work fine, shred it and wilt it down with the onions first then combine with the rest of the ingredients.

  8. Wow yummy! I've never thought of softening onions in the microwave - genius. That'll save me some stirring... ;)

    P.S. typo alert: veg draw, to much slaving x
