Method

  1. Put onion, garlic and sundried tomatoes into a blender* and blend until all pieces are small.
  2. Add all the other patty ingredients (except the flour) and blend until a thick doughy mixture forms.
  3. Take handfuls of the mixture and roll into burger patties. Then coat each one in a little bit of flour.
  4. Place on a tray in the oven at 180° for 40minutes, flipping after 20minutes.
  5. While the burgers are in the oven, add all of the dressing ingredients to a large bowl and mix thoroughly, leave in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
  6. Serve your burger with crunchy lettuce, cucumber, red onion and tomato and pour dressing over.

*This recipe is possible without a blender, you’ll just need a lot of chopping and crushing!
