  1. Pat the beetroot dry with kitchen paper. Tip into a bowl and stir with the feta, spring onions, herbs, eggs and breadcrumbs. Season and shape into 18 patties.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, add the patties in batches and cook for 4-5 mins each side until firm and golden. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt with the tahini and 2 tbsp water, and warm the flatbreads (I do this over a gas flame so that they char a little, but it can be done in a microwave or oven instead).
  3. Spread the warm flatbreads with some of the tahini yogurt, then add the salad items. Top with the hot patties, squeeze over some lemon juice, then roll up and eat with your fingers.

Made these with a slight substitution - 2 tbsp Chia seeds + water in place of the eggs. Held together nonetheless and were delicious! Now to fight the urge to eat the leftovers...

A delicious, colourful meal. We all had seconds. Made more smaller patties as these fitted in the wrap more easily.

These were fantastically tasty and quick to make! The herbs make them so fresh and zingy and went great with a simple leafy salad with lemon and olive oil. I also swapped the yoghurt/tahini with a quick yoghurt, cucumber and mint dip.
I added more breadcrumbs than recommended so the mixture was not too wet and would fry more easily. The colour is undeniably wonderful, I imagine a good way to get kids to eat veg! Would definitely make again!
