I always seem to end up with a random courgette lingering around the fridge so I decided to make something with it for lunch today. I ended up making these veggie burgers and was pleasantly surprised with the result so decided to share it with you. It’s a really quick and easy recipe to make and also counts towards your five a day.




  • 1 medium sized courgette, grated
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 small chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 slice gluten free bread
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • salt and pepper for seasoning



  1. Place the grated courgette in a clean tea towel and squeeze out all the liquid
  2. Put the bread in a blender or tear up to make fine breadcrumbs
  3. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined
  4. Shape into 2 patties
  5. Cook in a little olive oil over a medium heat for 4 minutes on each side
  6. Serve as is with some salad or in a burger bun
