Lemon and herb vege burgers
For this one I'm just going to post the recipe for the patty, the rest is pretty straight forward ;)
Recipe makes 4 decent sized pattys (1 potato per patty roughly)
You will need:
4 medium sized potatoes, boiled, drained and roughly mashed (I mash my potatoes with 3 tablespoons of soy milk and a tablespoon of nutellex butter, but this is optional)
1 cup of mixed vegetables, I used a frozen mix of diced carrot alongside peas and corn
3 tablespoons of lemon juice, either freshly squeezed or packaged
2 tablespoons of herbs, I used lemon thyme to accentuate flavours, but you could always use coriander or even just a mixed herbs.
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
1/4 - 1/2 cup of cornflour.
2 tablespoons of salt
2 tablespoons of pepper
1 teaspoon of wasabi (optional, I like the tang it gives the patty)
Combine the above ingredients in a bowl until mixture sticks together well. Form into pattys (you can coat in breadcrumbs if you wish, but I didn't), I made 4 out of the mix and then fry in a hot pan with some oil until browned on both sides - patty is soft and goes great in a burger bun with some salad.
You can always customize the recipe by removing the lemon juice and herbs, and adding your own flavours, for example, you could always add a curry mix or something similar, experiment!
