Ingredients

Zucchini Burgers:

Yoghurt Sauce

  • 4 Tbsp Greek Yoghurt
  • ½ Small Lemon juice only
  • ¼ Garlic Clove grated

Instructions

  • Grate your zucchini and drain the excess water from the zucchini and the chickpeas.
  • Thinly slice the spring onion and add the seasoning and spring onion to a bowl with the zucchini and chickpeas.
  • Bind the ingredients into zucchini burgers.
  • Place the veggie burgers in the air fryer grill pan and cook in the air fryer for 12 minutes at 200c/400f.
  • While the zucchini burgers are cooking make your yoghurt sauce. Place the yoghurt sauce ingredients into a small bowl and mix with a fork.
  • When cooked sprinkle fresh chives over your zucchini burgers and serve with your yoghurt sauce and some lettuce.

Notes

The version I have gone with here in my Zucchini burgers is Indian seasoned. You can swap this for your favourite seasoning mix. Just like I have mentioned in this recipe.
Its better to use an air fryer grill pan. It gives it a better grill taste and also reduces the amount of cleaning for your air fryer.
I use a clean tea towel to remove the excess liquid from the chickpeas and zucchini. Squeeze it tight and drain the water over the sink. Once done it is like mashed vegetables leftover without much moisture.
If your zucchini burgers are too wet and sticky, you can add some gluten free oat bran to help them bind.
