The vegetarians amongst us would make a vegetarian burger and this recipe is simply lovely.

Very easy to make and absolutely delicious. I didn't change a thing and thought the chilli was more than enough - definitely won't be adding more when I make again.

Used 2 chillis plus seeds and a tablespoon of caramelised onions in the burgers. Also used my own homemade chilli jam in the relish gorgeous !

Wasn't that hot but it was nice. All my tomatoes had fallen off their vines so I halved them and roasted them cut side up.

I also agree with the need for a little more kick. The relish is fantastic but personally I don't think that the roasted tomatoes are worth the effort as they don't really add anything to the dish.

Agree with the extra chilli.. I added about 4 small bird's eyes. Added tobasco and worcester sauces to the mince which was nice. Relish is pefect and the roasted tomatoes go brilliantly with it. I added double the coriander to the burgers.

I agree about need for slightly more 'kick' in terms of chilli. But the relish was surprisingly good..

We really enjoyed this recipe - apparently it was easy to cook (my husband did the 'hard' work!) and the result was delicious. We do like spicy food though and despite adding double the fresh chilli, this still wasn't spicy enough so next time we'll add more.
