Method

 

1. Pre heat your over to 180oC. Slice and peel your Butternut Squash into burger bun shapes, drizzle with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and then put in the oven to bake. (Depending on size they will take around 20 minutes.

 

2. For the burger; finely slice onion, chili and garlic and sauté until soft. In a bowl place your mice, coriander, egg and the sautéd bits and mix thoroughly.

 

3. Mould your burgers into whatever size you want, I made mine slightly smaller than the butternut squash so it fitted in. Using the same pan as you sautéd in lightly fry your burgers so they are browned on each side. Then place on a tray and put in the oven to cook through, disgarding any excess fat that has dripped out.

 

4. For the salsa; finely cube mango, cucumber, tomato. Finely slice red chilli and coriander and then mix all together with a squeeze of lime and some salt and pepper.

 

5. For the salad; using a peeler peel your carrot into strips and then toss with spinach, olive oil and salt and pepper.

 

6. Everything’s ready to go so just construct everything as in the picture!
