I don’t make an awful lot of vegetarian food. I have this notion that I’d miss the meat but really it is only that, a notion. This is great, real filling. The recipe is from the Weight Watchers Simply Enjoy cookbook. The method suggests making these in the oven and really that’s the only way to make them, I tried cooking them on the pan because I was short of time, but they fall apart.

8 propoints per serving

Serves 4


125g light halloumi cheese, patted dry and grated coarsely

2 carrots, peeled and grated coarsely

125g canned sweetcorn, drained

2 large spring onions, chopped

40g fresh breacrumbs

1 egg, beaten lightly

calorie controlled cooking spray

salt and freshly ground pepper

To serve

4x wholemeal rolls

4 curly lettuce leaves

tomato slices

red onion slices

cucumber slices

4 tablespoons spicy tomato salsa or relish



1. Put the halloumi, carrot, sweetcorn and spring onions in a food processor and whizz to a coarse paste. Spoon the mixture into a mixing bowl and stir in the breadcrumbs, eff and seasoning. Shape into four burgers- the mixture is quite loose but holds together when cooked.

2. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180 degreees celsius and spray a baking tray with the cooking spray. Transfer the burgers to the baking tray, place in the oven and cook for about 20-25 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking, until cooked through and golden.

3. Meanwhile, cut each roll in half and lightly toast. Top one half of each roll with a lettuce leaf and slices of tomato. Add the burgers and top with cucumber and red onion as well as a tablespoonful of the salsa/relish and finally the top of the roll. Serve straightaway.

The recipes suggests making the day before and storing in the fridge as it firms them up and they are easier to cook.
