Place the quinoa into a pot and pour in water. Cook the quinoa in accordance with the packet instructions.

Grate the beetroot and courgette and place into a clean cloth and squeeze out the excess liquid.

Blitz the oats in a food processor till a flour consistency forms.

In a bowl combine the beetroot, courgette,quinoa, garlic, dill, soy sauce, chopped walnuts, onion powder and oat flour. Mix well, season with salt and pepper. Pour in the drained blacked beans. Using a potato masher mash the beans into the mixture. Add egg to the mixture and mix well with hands and shape into 6 burger patties.

In a blender combine wild rocket, Parmesan cheese, garlic and pine nuts. Blitz till smooth. Drizzle in the olive oil & the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Cook Burger Patties

Heat a large frying pan to medium heat. Cook on either side for 5 minutes. Ensuring the burger patties do not burn. Sprinkle the cheese on top to melt in the last two minutes of cooking.

Step 4: Assemble the burger

Toast the buns. Place the wild rocket on first, then the burger patties, red onions, pesto and serve.
