– Caramalised onions
– Onion chutney
– Homous
– Tzadziki dip

– Pesto options ( light on oil content )

Extra Info:

Turkey mince is a good alternative if you are not a fan of red meat and would like to vary your diet. Easy to make the turkey patties the night before for daytime meals on the go – if assembling the burgers well in advance avoid using very wet ingredients. Homous is a great base to work from for building the burger because it adds creaminess without the saturated fats.
