Christmas leftovers veggie burger

Prep: 40 minutes including rest time

Cook: 20 minutes

This recipe gives a new lease of life to those left over Christmas roast vegetables that never taste quite as good the next day.

500g left-over vegetables - carrots, potatoes, brussel sprouts, red onions

1 egg

100g bread crumbs

Salt and pepper to taste

6 slices cheddar cheese

100g kimchi

200g Mayonaise

6 burger buns

Roughly chop the leftover veg into small pieces.

Mix in the egg and breadcrumbs and season. Test the mix by squeezing a handful together, it should hold its shape on release.

Make 4-6 patties from the mix and let them set in the fridge for 20 minutes.

To make the kimchi mayonnaise, finely chop the kimchi and mix together with the mayonnaise.

In a frying pan with a lid, heat 1 tbsp of vegetable oil and place the patties into the pan for 5 minutes on each side on a medium heat. Both sides should be nicely coloured.

Place a slice of cheddar cheese onto each patio and lower the heat, place the lid on the pan and leave for 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.

To construct the burger, spread a small amount of the mayonnaise onto the buns, top with a patty and a spoonful of kimchi mayonnaise.
