Get ready for National BBQ Week (27 May – 2 June) with these moreish Veggie Burgers. Fresh, healthy and full of flavour; even the most ardent of meat eaters will be impressed.

Pulling the recipe together couldn’t be easier. The Microplane® Master Series Extra Coarse Grater makes light work of effortlessly and precisely grating the courgette and sweet potato.  The grater works equally well with apples, cabbage, carrots, coconut, chocolate, hard and soft cheese.  Non-slip rubber feet protect the worktop when grating while the elegant wooden handle with a stainless-steel frame is comfortable to use.

Makes: 4 burgers

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 red onions
  • 1 tsp butter

What To Do:
