These burgers are perfect for those days when you fancy fast-food. Yes, because we don't always like the idea of ​​a dish of rice, cabbages and beans. Am I right? Super easy to make (very easy!), they do not require much time in the kitchen and bring with them an incredible mix of flavours. For the sauce, just add tahini + maple syrup + lime or lemon juice + chopped or powdered garlic (optional) + water to the desired consistency. The accompaniments are the customer's choice.

  • 2-3 tbsp. Olive oil

------

Note: If the mixture is cold, it becomes easier to shape the burgers. If the mixture is not thick enough, add a little more flaxseed or flakes. Shape small burgers with the help of your hands

Note: They should not be too big or too thick to be cooked inside. Bake at 180 C for 20 minutes or grill them in a frying pan greased with oil until they are golden on both sides. Serves with tahini sauce. Enjoy your food!
