If you are trying to find some nice mid-week dinner options, why not try your hand at home made veggie burgers? These are a very simple way to make a delicious and thrifty meal from store cupboard basics. You can dress them up or down with the sides that you choose.

The best part is, these actually look a little bit meaty which is great news if you are trying to feed a meat-lover. Cutting out meat is also a great way to save a few pennies on your weekly shop.

Ingredients (makes 4 large or 8 small patties)

2 tins lentils, drained and washed
cup plain flour
1 egg
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander


1) Place the lentils, flour and spices into a large mixing bowl and combine well. Add the egg and bring together until everything is moistened.

2) Using wet hands, form the mixture into patties. You can make either 4 large burger-size patties, or 8 smaller tapas style patties.

3) Heat a frypan on med-high and add a little olive oil. Place the patties in the pan, and cook for 5 minutes on each side. The patties will form a crisp base during this time, which will help hold them together.

4) Serve as a burger on Turkish bread with some tabouli style salad (cucumber, tomato, red onion and parsley) and a little natural yoghurt with chopped up jalapenos if you like the heat.
Alternatively serve the smaller patties in a tapas style with some hummus or tzatziki on the side.
