  • 2 whole eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Place the couscous in a bowl with 1 tbsp of the olive oil.
  2. Pour over the boiling water and cover with clingfilm. Allow to soak for about 15 minutes or until ready.
  3. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil to a frying pan and, on a medium heat, fry the red onions for 5 minutes.

  5. While the onions are frying, using a fork to break up the couscous.
  6. Add the couscous to the onion and garlic mix.
  7. Add the grated sweet potato and mix well.
  8. Remove from the heat and place in a large bowl.
  9. Add the rolled oats, chopped coriander and crumbled feta.
  10. Season with salt and pepper.
  11. Just before you are ready to cook the patties, add the two whole eggs and mix well.
  12. Take 4 metal rings, and prepare by brushing the inside of each ring with some olive oil.
  13. Place the mixture into the four rings, always making sure they have been pressed down firmly and that they can hold their shape when the ring is removed.
  14. Using a large, non-stick frying pan on a low-to-medium heat, add some olive oil to the pan.
  15. Gently add the patties to the frying pan. Flip regularly to ensure they go crispy.
  16. To construct, add lettuce and sliced tomato to a toasted brioche bun, then place the couscous patty on top. Finish off with sliced red onions and pickle.
  17. Serve with chunky fries and coleslaw.
