Burger and Chips - Plant Based and Low Waste

We have so many courgettes here in the garden and I am constantly trying to come up with recipes to use them up.

Burgers: Makes 8


2 cups courgette/zucchini

1 carrot

1 cup of cooked broad beans or 1 tin broad beans

1 small handful fresh mint

1 medium red chilli

1/4 cup oats

1/4 cup gram flour/chickpea flour

1/8 asafoetida

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/4 salt & pepper

Burger Buns:


1 cup flour (I used spelt flour because it is easier to digest and higher in fibre)

1/3 cup water

Smashed Potatoes:


20 small potatoes or enough for two people

coconut oil and salt


Grate the courgettes into a muslin cloth. Leave rest for 10 minutes and then squeeze all the juice into a bowl.

Feel free to drink the juice!

Peel the potatoes

Potato skins can be reused by sprinkling with salt and pepper and rotting in the oven until crispy.

Boil the potatoes for 15 minutes. You want them cooked but not too soft.

Place the courgettes and carrots into a food processor.

Add the cooked beans

Add the chilli and mint and blend
