Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Instructions:

  1. Slice Lizza Low Carb Toast Squares and grill them on a hot griddle until they’re well toasted.
  2. Spread Lizza Bell Pepper Ginger Spread on one side of the toasties. Then half a handful of rocket leaves on top.
  3. To make zucchini patty, grate zucchini and carrots in a bowl. Sprinkle salt in the bowl and let it sit for 15 minutes so that the salt can draw out the moisture from these veggies.

  6. Mould the mixture into patties and grill on both sides to cook evenly.
  7. To finish the burger, top the slice with bell pepper spread with cooked zucchini patty.
  8. Add a dollop of bell pepper ginger spread on top of the zucchini patty as well and top the burger with the second side of the toasty.

Tip: You can also spread goat cheese on top of the patty in this burger. Alternatively, add vegan cashew cream.
