The Ultimate Air Fryer Veggie Burgers
Delicious veggie burgers in the air fryer. Featuring sweet potato, carrots, cauliflower and chickpeas. Perfect for a quick evening veggie burger and a great way to get your kids eating their veggies.
Peel and chop the vegetables and place them in the bottom of the Instant Pot inner pot. Add to the Instant Pot 1 cup of warm water. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 10 minutes on manual.
Drain the vegetables and using a tea towel squeeze out the excess moisture so that the vegetables are quite dry.
Add the chickpeas and mash the vegetables together.
Add the breadcrumbs and mix well.
Add the seasonings and make into veggie burger shapes.
Roll in the grated cheese so that it is fully covered in cheese.
Place the veggie burgers in the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes at 180c/360f. Follow this up with a further 5 minutes at 200c/400f to get that crusty veggie burger texture.
Serve warm in bread buns or with a salad (or both).
This recipe made 6 large veggie burgers. When you are chopping up vegetables, because they reduce in size, its hard to get it exactly right for 4 medium burgers. But they can be frozen, and you can easily make 8 small to medium veggie burgers on the measurements above.
To give you exact amounts I weighed out the vegetables above. But you can of course just use 4 large carrots, 1 medium cauliflower and 4 medium sweet potatoes. 10 minutes on manual in the Instant Pot may seem a lot BUT there is a lot of vegetables, it will take a while to get them to pressure and you want them really soggy when cooked. It also took me 13 minutes before the vegetables went to pressure.
