Vegetarian Hamburger with Pickled Carrot Slaw

We've all spent the summer barbecueing and the likes of hamburgers, sausages and steaks but sometimes it's time to take one of those familiar items and give it a more conscious twist. Here is our recipe for vegetarian hamburgers. There are a number of good versions available in the supermarkets. It's best to try out a few and find out which your favourite is.

Serves 2

2 hamburger buns
2 vegetarian hamburgers
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon miso
1 large carrot (300 g)
75 g rocket
2 tablespoons olive oil (2 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar (2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon sugar

Peel the carrot and coarsely grate. Place in a bowl with 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon sugar, salt and pepper. Set aside to pickle.
Place the mayonnaise in a bowl and whisk through the miso. Set aside.
Cut the hamburger buns open. Heat a frying pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil and toast the buns on the cut side until golden. Remove from the pan.
Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and fry the hamburgers until golden, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
Spoon the carrot slaw on to the bottom half each bun. Lay a hamburger on each followed by a spoonful of miso mayonnaise. Top with the rocket and serve.
