Welcome to a new world of veggie burgers. Instead of a patty, you’ll fry up a tasty fritter filled with grated veggies and Parmesan cheese, then pile it with salad on a brioche bun. With a smear of smokey aioli and sweet potato fries on the side, this is a burger for the record books!

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the sweet potato (unpeeled) into 1cm fries and place on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle with the paprika spice blend, drizzle with olive oil, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and toss to coat. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until tender. TIP: Don't worry if the spices char a little, this adds to the flavour!
While the fries are baking, grate the zucchini and squeeze out the excess moisture. Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Thinly slice the spring onion. Finely chop the chives. Thinly slice the tomato.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg. Add the zucchini, carrot, garlic, spring onion, chives, milk, grated Parmesan cheese, a pinch of chilli flakes (if using), plain flour, the salt and a pinch of pepper. Mix well to combine. TIP: Lift out some of the mixture with a spoon, if it's too wet and doesn't hold its shape, add a little more flour!
Coat the base of a large frying pan with olive oil and heat over a medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, place a spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan and flatten into patties using a spatula. You should get 2 fritters per person. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through, then transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. TIP: If your pan is getting crowded, cook in batches for the best results. Don’t flip early to ensure the fritters can set and add extra oil as needed
While the patties are cooking, place the bake-at-home burger buns on a wire rack in the oven for 3 minutes, or until heated through.
Slice the burger buns in half and spread with smokey aioli. Top with the fritters, a handful of mixed salad leaves and sliced tomato. Serve with the sweet potato fries.
