fry's braaied mushroom burger

 2 boxes Fry’s Chicken Burgers
 Oil for brushing
 8 large brown mushrooms
 Pineapple, peeled and sliced
Basil and Wild Rocket Pesto
 1 cup fresh basil
 1 cup wild rocket
 ¼ cup roasted cashews
 ¼ cup pine nuts
 ½ cup olive oil
 2 cloves garlic, peeled
 1 tbsp lime or lemon juice
 Salt and pepper
To serve
 Baby spinach
 Vegan cheese
 Tomato, sliced
For the Basil and Wild Rocket Pesto:

Place all of the ingredients for the pesto in a food processor and blitz until combined. Taste and correct seasoning.


The Chicken Burgers will taste best cooked over hot coals, so get the braai going. Brush each Chicken Burger with a little oil and braai until golden brown. Braai the mushrooms and pineapple slices until just cooked and the edges are charred.

To Serve:

Top a mushroom (underside up) with baby spinach and a slice of tomato. Add a Chicken Burger, a slice of cheese, pineapple, a second Chicken Burger patty and a second slice of cheese. Top with pesto and cover with a second mushroom. Season with cracked salt and pepper, as you assemble.
