Chef's Tip

  • Offer your customer their favourite condiments to this Mexican veggie burger to make their own – light mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard or pickles for extra flavour.  Serve with a chilled jug of lime cordial to cool the flames!
  • This recipe could be made vegan by simply replacing the sourdough buns to vegan buns and replacing the cheese and mayonnaise to vegan alternatives.
