Green Pesto Burger

Prep Time: 10 mins Cook time: 10 mins – Serves 2

The green beast! Created with the Heck Vegan Italia Burgers alongside dairy-free basil pesto, rocket salad and a delicious pesto mayonnaise, bringing you the wonderful flavours of Genoa.


-  2 Vegan Italia Burgers

-  A little oil for frying

-  2 vegan-friendly burger buns (go for green ones if you’re feeling extra fancy!)

-  1 beef tomato, sliced (you’ll need 2 slices)

-  A handful of rocket salad

-  3 tbsp vegan-friendly basil pesto

-  2 tbsp vegan mayonnaise

-  Juice of 1⁄2 lemon

-  A sprinkle of black pepper

-  2 slices vegan meltable cheese



  1. Prepare the Heck Vegan Italia burger according to the packaging instructions in a little oil until golden on both sides.
  2. Toast your burger buns, then spread 1⁄2 tbsp of vegan pesto onto each bottom bun.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the rest of the pesto with the vegan mayo until smooth, then stir in the lemon juice and black pepper.
  4. Place half of the rocket salad onto each bottom burger bun, then top with the burger patty, a slice of tomato and a slice of vegan cheese. If you want it to be extra melty, place it under the grill for 2-3 minutes. Spread the pesto mayo across the top buns and the melted cheeze and place the bun on top to finish the burgers.
  5. Time to dig in!
