  • 300g Quorn Pieces, defrosted
  • 1 small onion, roughly chopped
  • 150g baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp Cajun spice mix
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 50g dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
FOR THE RED SLAW
  • 3 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 1 ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1⁄2 lemon, juiced
  • 200g red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated

Method

  1. Add the onion to a food processor bowl along with the spinach, Quorn Pieces and the Cajun spice. Blend in the processor until the mixture is quite finely chopped. Season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, add the beaten egg and breadcrumbs then gently mix until the ingredients come together. Dust a chopping board with flour and shape the burger mix into four round patties about the same size of the rolls.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the burgers on a medium heat for 5 minutes on each side until piping hot and golden on the outside. Only turn them once.
  4. Meanwhile to prepare the coleslaw combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, Dijon mustard and lemon juice in a mixing bowl then add the red cabbage, grated carrot and red onion and mix well until all of the vegetables are coated in the mayonnaise. Refrigerate until needed.
  5. Meanwhile preheat the grill to a moderate heat and toast the burger buns for a couple of minutes until golden.
  6. To assemble place each burger on the toasted burger bun bases with salad leaves, sliced cucumber and tomatoes then top with the bun lid. Serve with the red slaw on the side.
