Recently I have been craving one of Nando’s Veggie Burgers but anyone following Slimming World will know that they are a lot of syns, so it was time to find a new option that was healthier but just as tasty. Fakeaways is a god send! After reading the burger in a bowl recipe, I decided to recreate my own and I thought I should share the recipe for anyone looking for a vegan friendly but more healthier version burger.
low calorie cooking spray or 1 tbsp oil
1 onion, sliced thinly
2 crushed garlic cloves
half a packet of vegetarian mince
a handful of spinach
pepper, chopped into chunks
cucumber, chopped into chunks
mini plum tomatoes, cut in half
1 tbsp reduced salt and sugar tomato ketchup
1. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray or oil and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft and golden.
2. Stir in the mince and cook over a medium heat until it’s cooked. I learnt that it doesn’t change colour so make sure you see whether it’s browned.
3. Meanwhile, mix together the spinach, peppers, tomatoes, cucumber and gherkins in a bowl. Spoon the vegetarian mince mixture on top and drizzle over 1 tbsp of ketchup.
It tastes super delicious and is a lot like a burger flavour but without the bread and all the syns that you would find in other burgers. It also shows that you can turn more or less any recipe into a vegan friendly choice. It took about 10 minutes to make so for any of those who don’t like standing in front of a cooker for hours on end, this would be a good choice!
Let me know if you cook it yourself. Have you got any yummy, vegan recipes I could try next?
