Directions

Sweet Potato Fries

    Preheat the oven to 180°.
    Cut the sweet potatoes into thick match-stick slices.
    Place them onto a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt.
    Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.

Guacamole

    Flavor with the lemon zest and juice.

Mustard Mayo

    Combine all the ingredients together and season to taste.

Burgers

    Cut the cauliflower head into steaks of approximately 1,5cm thick.
    Rub lightly with the curry powder and season the steaks with salt and pepper.
    Heat a frying pan with a teaspoon of olive oil, fry the cauliflower steaks for about 3-4 minutes per side.
    Remove and set aside.
    Using the same pan, fry the streaky bacon until crispy, drain and set aside.
    Pour out the excess olive oil and continue to fry the burger patties for 3-4 minutes per side until cooked through.
    Turn off the heat, top each burger patty in the pan with some grated cheese, cover with a lid allowing the cheese to melt.
    To construct the burger, place the cauliflower steak onto a plate, top with the guacamole and the cheesy burger patty.
    Next, place the crispy bacon, a dollop of mustard mayo, cherry tomatoes and the wild rocket.
    Serve the burgers with sweet potato fries.
