Carrot and Tahini Patties with a Tahini Sauce

  • 1 serving (26 g) Formula 1 Savoury Meal, Mushroom & Herb flavour*
  • 1 serving (6 g) Personalized Protein Powder
  • 150 g grated raw carrot
  • 50 g shallot or red onion, grated
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed or finely grated
  • 60 g tahini paste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander or parsley
  • Teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (to cook)

For the tahini sauce:

  • 80 g tahini
  • 20 g warm water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Half tsp ground cumin
  • 1 pinch fine sea salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

To serve:

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 burger buns, halved and toasted, optional
  • rocket leaves, for serving
  • 1 avocado, sliced, for serving


  • To make the patties, place all the ingredients in a bowl together and stir well to mix. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Shape into patties. You can, if you like, toss the patties in sesame seeds so that they’re covered on both sides with the seeds, this gives a lovely crunch to the patties when they’re cooked.
  • The patties can be cooked straight away or they can be put into the fridge, covered, and cooked later in the day. They can also be frozen! If you want to cook them on the barbecue, make sure to coat them in olive oil before laying them in the hot grills.
  • Cook the patties in a frying pan with the 2 tablespoons of olive oil over a medium heat, until golden on one side, then turn over to the other side and cook until golden. They will take approximately 3-4 minutes on either side to cook.
  • To make the Tahini Sauce, place the tahini, water, lemon juice, honey, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well, adjusting the seasoning as you like. Transfer the sauce to a small bowl and set aside.
  • To serve, spread each burger bun (if using) with a 1 tablespoon of tahini sauce, a few rocket leaves, a few avocado slices and 1 burger patty.
