Un-Real Burger

Un-Real Burger

Who says you can’t eat amazingly tasty, wholesome, healthy food?

This Burger is exactly that, and more!

With South African Heritage Day just around the corner (24 September), I thought I would post this recipe as this occasion is usually celebrated around a fire and meat (known as a “Braai” in SA and Barbecue everywhere else in the world).

So lets talk more about this Whopper of a Burger.

The patties are from The Fry Family Food Co.

  • no hormones or antibiotics
  • 100% Vegan
  • NON – GM
  • no chemicals
  • no preservatives
  • no artificial colours
  • made with coconut oil


  • 25% more protein than a regular beef burger



Time: 10 min prep, 10 min cooking time


Ingredients for Basting:

1/4 cup Olive Oil

Dried Mixed Herbs


Ingredients for Tomato Relish


Ingredients Burger and Toppings

1 pack FRY’S Traditional Burgers

2 Buns (I recommend using half a bun to keep the Carb intake to a minimum)

1 Tomato, sliced

2 Gherkins, sliced

1 red onion thinly sliced

Handful Fresh Rocket and Micro Greens



Turn on BBQ or light the coals! (This can be done in an oven or on a pan as well!)

Mix together Basting Ingredients.

Allow Patties to defrost and liberally brush with basting ingredients.

Prepare all Relish Ingredients.  Strain tomatoes to remove extra water.

Fry Onions in the sunflower oil for 5 min until soft and translucent.  Add the garlic & chilli and fry for a further 1 min.

Place Burgers on BBQ.

Keep a close eye on Burgers and keep turning while you continue to make your tomato relish.

Add tomatoes to onion and cook for 5 min.

Add sugar and balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 8 min.

Remove Burgers from BBQ.

Construct Burger.
