About this recipe: Grated carrots and turai binded with egg and peanut butter into yummy burgers that are actually healthy for you!
*For beef and veggie burgers, add 450 g lean minced beef to the cooled vegetable mixture with the breadcrumbs and egg. Omit the peanut butter. Add 1 tbsp chilli powder instead of the ground cumin and coriander, if preferred. Shape the mixture into 8 burgers. Grill the burgers for 10 minutes, turning once. *These veggie burgers freeze well once cooked. Allow them to cool, then wrap them individually plastic bags and place in a freezer. To serve, remove the required number, unwrap and reheat from frozen under a microwave or preheated moderate grill for about 15 minutes, turning occasionally, or for about 20 minutes in the oven at 200°C until thoroughly heated.
*Peanut butter contributes protein to these burgers, as does the wheat from the wholemeal breadcrumbs. Peanut butter is high in fat, but this is largely in a healthy monounsaturated form. *Both onions and garlic contain allicin, a phytochemical that has anti-fungal and antibiotic properties.

I left out the egg to make this vegan (yes, the burgers were very crumbly) and added some fresh minced chilli. They were absolutely delicious and I will definitely make them again - 07 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
This is the most delicious veggie burger I have ever eaten! You have to like peanut butter, but if you do, this recipe is exceptionally good. I'd eat this over a beef burger any day! - 14 Oct 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
This was a lovely recipe. I'm not a vegetarian but don't eat burgers as don't like the texture or thought of what might be in them. My daughter has a peanut allergy so instead of peanut butter I substituted a tin of sweet corn which I blended before adding. I really enjoyed this and was really simple to make. Highly recommend. - 30 Oct 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
