Puff Pastry Wrapped Burgers

You can imagine how Simon concocted such an idea: If you’ve ever battled with the decision between pie or burger, then this burger-filled pie might just be the answer to your prayers!

Preparation time Prep: 20 mins
cook 45 mins
cool 10 mins

You will need:

  • 2 large Portobello mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 1 small brown onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 teaspoon whole fennel seeds
  • 1 tin black bean, rinsed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 tomato, sliced into rounds
  • 1 brown onion, sliced into rounds
  • 1 baby cabbage round, sliced into rounds
  • 2 slices smoked oat cheese
  • 1 beetroot, roasted and sliced into rounds
  • 1 packet vegan puff pastry
To serve
  • Mustard
  • Tomato sauce
Recipe: Simon Toohey


  • 1Preheat the oven to 220°C fan forced.
  • 2For the burger, place everything into a food processor and pulse until it comes together, keep some texture.
  • 3Portion into patties and fry on high heat briefly on both sides with a little oil — this is an important step to get a lot of moisture out of your patties. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  • 4Lay out your puff pastry and roll a little to flatten. Place a round of cabbage and a burger patty at the bottom, then stack it with a tomato slice and a couple rounds of onion, (Simon adds a second burger patty in here — but that's your call!), then a round of beetroot, and finally 2 slices of cheese. Gently lay another sheet of pastry over top, fold the edges together with the bottom pastry layer, and brush the pastry with 1 teaspoon of oil.
  • 5Bake in the oven for 30–35 minutes or until puffed and golden.
  • 6Slice it in half to serve — alongside tomato sauce and mustard or any dip of your choosing!
