Wow, absolutely the best veg option I have ever offered at one of my BBQ's. Mother in law and Daughter/Wife have been full of compliments. Being told it was the poshest burger they have ever had was lovely. I recommend for mother in laws who are fussy. Brilliant!

More of an assembly job than a recipe but the end result tasted good. A good veggie alternative for the barbecue.
