Ingredients:

  • 2 Exante Meal Replacement Burger Mix
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • A handful of basil leaves, finely chopped
  • A handful of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp light pesto
  • 1 egg, beaten

 Burger toppings:

    • 1 tbsp light mayonnaise
    • 1 curly leaf lettuce, leaves washed
    • 1 heirloom tomato, sliced
    • 1 small avocado, peeled, stoned and sliced (optional)
    • 4 wholemeal seeded rolls (optional)

Method:

1. Mix the two sachets of Exante Meal Replacement Burger Mix as instructed on packet with the red onion, basil, parsley, pesto and the egg together in a large bowl to bind the mixture.

2. Divide the mixture into 4 medium-sized balls and flatten into patties. Put on a plate and leave in the fridge to firm up for at least a couple of hours, or overnight.

3. Heat your barbeque. When it’s ready, rub a little coconut oil over the burgers and barbeque them on each side until cooked right through.

4.  Meanwhile, toast the wholemeal rolls (optional) spread with a little mayonnaise and top with lettuce.

5. Place the burgers on top, add a little onion and slices of avocado (optional).

 

If you want to go low carb or gluten-free, simply replace the bun with a romaine lettuce cup!
