1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

 

Method

For the burgers

Place the frozen vegetables into a bowl and set aside to defrost.

Preheat the oven to 190 °C.

Transfer the defrosted vegetables into a food processor, add the borlotti beans, onion, fresh coriander, parsley, flour, ground coriander, dried chilli, salt and pepper, and pulse to obtain a rough paste.

Add the sesame and sunflower seeds, and pulse again to incorporate.

Shape the mixture into four burgers, cover with a plastic wrap and freeze them for 10 minutes, then transfer them to the refrigerator.

Spray a cast-iron skillet with coconut oil, add the burgers and cook over low heat for 5 minutes on each side, until golden.

Into a medium bowl, place the rocket, spinach and dill, drizzle with extra olive oil and lime juice, and mix to combine.

Cut a burger bun into halves and toast under the grill for a few minutes.

Spread some mayonnaise on a burger bun base, add a vegan burger, top with another bit of mayonnaise, then layer 3 – 4 beet and sweet potato chips, 1 slice of pickled cucumber and fresh green salad, close with the bun top, then do the same with the other burgers.

 

For the avo mayo

Place the avocado, lemon juice, mustard and salt into the food processor and blend until smooth.

With the food processor running, drizzle in olive oil and continue until the mixture is smooth and has a mayo consistency.
