RECIPE: Vegetable and Quinoa Burgers with Tzatziki

These burgers are truly packed with goodness and make ideal finger food. This recipe makes a lot of burgers, so if you don't want to fill your freezer with these then I'd recommend reducing the amount of each ingredient. The quantities aren't too important, the only thing you have to make sure is that there is enough egg to bind the grated vegetables otherwise your burgers will fall apart. You could also mix up the vegetables (nothing with a high water content) using a combination of swede, celeriac, beetroot, turnip or potato. 

What you'll need:
for burgers
5 Carrots, grated
2 Sweet potato, grated 
2 Parsnip, grated
1 Onion, either finely sliced or grated
5 Eggs
150g Ground almonds
4 tbsp Tahini
250g Cooked Red and White Quinoa
3 Garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp Italian herbs
2 tsp Dried sage
2 tsp Dried thyme
2 tsp Cinnamon
Black pepper
Olive oil, for frying
for tzatziki
Greek yogurt
Cucumber, finely chopped
Fresh mint, finely chopped 

What to do:
1)Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. 
2) Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, wet your hands and mould a small handful of the mixture into a patty and fry on one side for 5 minutes. 
3) Once golden brown flip over and cook for a further 5 minutes on the other side, ensuring that it's cooked all of the way through. 
4) Set the cooked ones aside on kitchen paper and repeat the process with the rest of the mixture. You can freeze the burgers once cooked.
5) To make the tzatziki stir together the ingredients and serve with the vegetable and quinoa burgers.
Which vegetable combination would your little one enjoy in these burgers?
