Good Food Friday : veggie burgers

Each week we get a delivery box of produce from Aussie Farmers Direct. I’m not kidding you when I say I’m like a kid at Christmas when this arrives. I get a present every Wednesday, waiting on my door step for when I get in from work. A box packed full of the best local produce – no stress and for the same price I might pay if I took a trip to the market. Aussie Farmers have introduced an organic range recently – this has completed our little love affair. Check out their website for delivery locations and variety of produce they have on offer. I get the large box of veggies which can last up to 2 weeks (even though I get a weekly order). The quality is second to none.


At the end of each week, I take a look in my fridge and aim to use up most of what is left to make room for the new box of fruit and veg that is eagerly on it’s way. This week I whipped up a batch of lip smacking veggie burgers. These were so full of flavour, the mixture saw me eating it out of the bowl! You could add or subtract any veggies from the base mixture – and best of all they are free of gluten – perfect for the weekend BBQ.

Nat’s Veggie Burgers

4 peeled potatos
1 cup of peas (I prefer fresh but frozen are ok)
2 grated carrots
8 mushrooms (I used button), chopped
2 diced shallots
1/4 cup basil shredded
1 nob of butter
salt and pepper to taste
Coconut oil to fry

In a steamer, steam potatoes until almost soft. Add peas and cook until both peas and potatoes are very soft.
Mash together peas and potato with a potato masher. Add butter, carrots, mushrooms, shallots, basil, salt and pepper and mix well.
Scoop small handfuls of mixture and work into a patty shape and size of your choice. Repeat until the mixture is finished. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes).
Heat a tsp of Coconut Oil in a fry pan and cook patties in batches.
Serve with Salad or in between bread to make an awesome burger.

    Naaaat!!! I was talking to hubby today about your blog and recipes and how much I love it (like seriously love. If you ever stopped blogging I would cry 1000 tears – serious) and have learnt soooo much from it. Throughout the day I often th…ink 'oh what would Nat do/think of this' – espe when grocery shopping, cooking or eating.
    Im going to go through all your recipes on the weekend and incorporate one or two every week and start making some changes.
    I would love one day if at all possible if you could blog about a typical weeks menu for your family inc snacks, dinners, lunches, drinks etc. Would love some ideas and recipes!
    I get excited everytime I make a healthy change in the boys diets LOL!
