20 mins to prep

20 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 200℃ fan-forced. Slice the capsicum in half, massage with olive oil, place on a baking tray and bake for 30–40 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    If you have a food processor attach the large grating attachment, remove the stalks from the beetroots and chop into quarters. Turn on the food processor, pass the beetroot through the shoot. If you don’t have the attachment grate separately and then put into the food processor.

  3. Step 3

    Once the beetroot is done, add the remaining patties ingredients. Pulse until the mixture combines. Put the mixture into the fridge for 30 minutes. Check on your capsicum, when the skin has started to blacken around 30–40 minutes remove it from the oven and when cool enough to touch remove the skin and put in the fridge to cool down.

  4. Step 4

    Grate 1 cucumber and place into a sieve, add a sprinkle of salt and let sit for 10 minutes, then squeeze out any excess water. In a small bowl, add the coconut yoghurt, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Once the cucumber is ready, add to the yoghurt and mix together.

  5. Step 5

    Slice the other 1/2 a cucumber and set aside. After 30 minutes remove the mixture from the fridge and roll into 8 even balls.

  6. Step 6

    Heat a frying pan on medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of oil – add 4 patties at a time into the frying pan pressing them down as you place them down. Fry each side for around 5 minutes or until crispy and firm to touch.

  7. Step 7

    Toast the burger bun, then add rocket, cucumber, patty and coconut tzatziki and enjoy!
