    Spiced carrot burgers

    Using ‘ready-cooked’ freekeh makes this recipe a cinch to put together, but the wheat grains can easily be substituted for the same weight of cooked rice or lentils.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    2 tbsp essential Waitrose olive oil

    11⁄2 tsp medium curry powder

    650g essential Waitrose carrots, coarsely grated

    250g ready-to-eat freekeh (we used Merchant Gourmet)

    2 tbsp plain flour

    1 essential Waitrose egg

    small handful flat leaf parsley, chopped

    150g essential Waitrose feta, crumbled

    4 brioche burger buns, halved

    2 tbsp tomato and piri piri chutney (or chilli jam)

    handful wild rocket


    1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. Put 1 tbsp oil, the curry powder and the carrot in a large, ovenproof frying pan set over a medium heat. Stir-fry until the carrot is soft throughout and any liquid has evaporated, leaving the carrot slightly frazzled in places (about 6 minutes). Set aside to cool slightly, then tip into a mixing bowl.

    2. Add the freekeh, flour, egg and parsley to the bowl, then mix with a wooden spoon. Season, add 1⁄2 the feta and mix again. With slightly wet hands, firmly shape into 4 patties.

    3. Wipe out the pan and return to a medium heat with the remaining 1 tbsp oil. Add the burgers and cook for 4 minutes on one side until golden. Flip carefully, cook for 1 minute, then slide the pan into the oven for 15 minutes. Warm the buns for the final 2 minutes and fill each with a burger, 1⁄2 tbsp chutney (or chilli jam), a few rocket leaves and a scattering of the remaining 75g crumbled feta.
