Rate this recipe


  • 3 medium-sized beetroots, peeled, cut evenly and baked until soft
  • 400g tin of mixed pulses, drained
  • 1tbsp harissa paste
  • 1/2 lemon’s juice and grated zest
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 3g chopped coriander
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed / olive oil
  • 1g salt
  • 1g pepper
  • 300g tin of marrowfat peas
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed / olive oil
  • 100g asparagus spears
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1g salt
  • 1g pepper
  • 2 red onions, sliced thin and evenly
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp golden sugar
  • 1g pepper
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 4 sweet potatoes, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • Cooking oil
  • 1g salt
  • 1g pepper
  • 5g thyme leaves
Prep Time


  1. Place all the burger ingredients in the cup of your blender and pulse until the mixture is fully combined. With clean hands, mould the mixture into evenly shaped patties.

  2. Heat a skillet on the stove and drizzle in some oil. Fry each burger until golden on each side. Once each burger is golden, place them on an oven tray and bake for 10 minutes in a pre-heated oven.

  3. Place all the puree ingredients apart from the asparagus into your Nutri Ninja and pulse until smooth.

  4. Transfer the puree to a mixing bowl and stir in the Asparagus spears.

  5. Add some cooking oil to a frying pan over a moderate heat, add all of the caramelised onion ingredients and cook for 20 minutes — making sure you stir the ingredients well every two minutes or so. The onions will be soft and sticky when they’re ready.

  6. Place the sweet potatoes into a mixing bowl, drizzle with enough oil until each potato has been covered, and sprinkle over the salt, pepper and thyme leaves.

  7. Put the potatoes onto a non-stick baking tray, and bake in a pre-heated oven at 175C for 30-35 minutes. Your potatoes should be crispy when served.

As a former chef, food has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. But it was my love of creating my own dishes and then sharing them with the world that got me to where I am today. I have a passion for creating vegan food that looks every bit as good as it tastes. Perhaps the only thing to rival my passion for cooking is my love of photography. And I'm so fortunate, as I get to combine my great passions in life every day.
