    • 1 x 400g tin cannellini beans, drained
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) flaxseeds
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) chia seeds
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) ground almonds
    • 5ml (1 tsp) smoked paprika
    • zest of 1 lemon
    • 4 baby marrows, grated
    • 30g sunflower seeds
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • Vegan cashew mayo
    • 100g cashews, soaked for 10 minutes in boiling water, drained and water discarded
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) water
    • 15ml (1 tbsp) Dijon mustard
    • juice of ½ lemon
    • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
    • 10ml (2 tsp) white vinegar
    • To serve
    • 4 burger buns, halved and toasted
    • handful lettuce leaves
    • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced lengthways
    • 2 tomatoes, sliced
    • 1 red onion, peeled and sliced into rings
    • handful sprouts of your choice



    Prepare a braai to grill the burgers over medium-high heat.


    For the burger patties, place all of the ingredients – except the baby marrows, sunflower seeds and seasoning – in a blender and blitz until just smooth. Remove from blender and stir in the grated baby marrows and sunflower seeds. Season well to taste.


    Divide the burger mixture into 4 and shape into patties. Grill on the braai until slightly charred, 3 – 4 minutes


    For the vegan cashew mayo, place all of the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth. Season to taste.


    To assemble the burgers, place a dollop of mayo on each burger-bun half. Top with some lettuce, a patty, avo slices, tomato slices, red onion slices and sprouts. Close the burgers and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.
