    lightly beaten
  • 0.5 tsp Fennel Seeds
    toasted
  • 0.25 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 small SuperValu Courgette
    roughly grated
  • 50 g SuperValu Fresh Breadcrumbs
  • 400 g SuperValu Turkey Mince
    or chicken mince
For The Slaw:
  • 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 0.5 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 - Fennel Bulb
    thinly shaved
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 - Lemon
    zest and juice
  • 4 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 pinch Pepper
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 0.25 - SuperValu Red Cabbage
    thinly shaved
To Serve:
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
    melted
  • 4 - Seeded SuperValu Burger Buns
    toasted
  • 1 - SuperValu Avocado
    ripe, stoned and halved

Method

  1. To make the slaw, whisk together the oil, vinegar, honey, mustard and lemon zest in a large bowl. Set the lemon juice aside for the avocado sauce. Add the shaved fennel and cabbage and toss to coat. Season to taste, then set aside.
  2. Combine all the burger ingredients except the oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix until evenly combined. Shape into four large patties 10cm in diameter and 1.25cm thick, placing on a tray lined with baking parchment as you go.
  3. Put a large pan over a medium-low heat and add the oil. Add the burgers and cook for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until golden and cooked through.
  4. While these are cooking, scoop the avocado into a mini blender. Add the reserved lemon juice and melted coconut oil and blend until smooth, then season to taste with salt. The sauce should be thick and creamy.
  5. Once the burgers are cooked, spread the avocado sauce across the burger bun base. Top with some slaw, a burger and another dollop of avocado sauce, then add the burger bun top. Serve the rest of the slaw and avocado sauce on the side and dig in.
