These beautiful juicy veggie burgers are tender, crunchy and full of flavour. The ingredients used are just a guideline, you could make them with other veggies and grains. Best enjoyed with smashed avocado, chopped cilantro and some fries or salad on the side.
Mix the grated veggies (beetroot, carrot and courgette) in a large bowl. Place on a kitchen towel, and strain as much water as you can. Place veggies back into the bowl.
Add the eggs, rice, flour, feta, lemongrass and condiment with olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well until a sticky "dough" is formed. If the dough is too wet, add flour (almond, chickpea, any kind!). If it's too dry or not, add olive oil or an extra whipped egg.
Start forming small balls with the veggie dough and flatten them to create a burger shape. To make this step easier, if you have time, leave the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Now we are going to seal the burgers on both sides so they don't break. Set a non-stick pan to medium heat. Drizzle some olive oil and when it's hot, add the burgers. Press with a spatula to flatten and if the burger starts to break, use the spatula to bring it back together. After 3 mins, flip and cook on the other side. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. If necessary, reduce heat slightly.
