Moin Moin Vegan Burger


For the burgers:
1x 200g pack of Love Moin Moin mix
600ml cold water
3 tbsp vegan mayonnaise
50g polenta (cornmeal)
2tbsp sunflower oil
4 bread rolls of your choice
For the smoky mayo:
4 tbsp vegan mayo
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp smoked paprika


1. Combine the Love Moin Moin mix with the cold water in a large bowl until smooth (it will be a fairly thin mixture). Divide between 8 lightly-greased ramekin dishes.

2. Cover the ramekins with their lids or parchment paper. Carefully place four of them into a microwavable dish filled with water. Microwave for around 5-8 minutes, depending on your microwave.* Repeat with the remaining four. Alternatively, you can steam them for 30 minutes.

3. Remove the ramekins from the dish and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, add 3tbsp vegan mayo into one dish and the polenta into another, ready for coating the burgers later.

4. Once the moi moi burger patties are cool enough to handle, run a knife inside the edge of each to loosen from the ramekins. Gently remove the burger patties and reshape/flatten a little, if needed, to resemble burgers. Cover each burger patty in a thin layer of mayo and coat evenly in the polenta.

5. Heat the oil over a medium heat in a large frying pan. Once hot, cook the burgers for around 5-6 minutes, turning frequently until the polenta crust turns golden brown. As they cook, mix together the smoky mayo ingredients and cut the bread rolls in half.

6. Build the burgers by adding the burger patties and mayo into the rolls. You can also add extras such as lettuce and avocado, if you wish!

*You may wish to test one first to see how long they need in your microwave. For me, they took 8 minutes at 800w to reach the desired texture.
