Drizzle of olive oil

2 cloves garlic

2 handfuls of basil

Squeeze of 1/2 lemon

¼ cup Cocobella Natural coconut yoghurt

1 & ⅓ cup chickpea flour (aka besan flour)

Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt

Olive oil or Coconut oil for frying


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees & prepare a baking tray with baking paper (you may need two trays depending on the size).
  2. Arrange the vegetables on the tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with Himalayan sea salt
  3. Roast until the pumpkin is soft and vegetables are cooked through.
  4. Put aside until read to assemble burgers.
  5. Place all coconut yoghurt pesto ingredients into a food processor and pulse until a smooth consistency is formed.
  6. Add the dry chickpea bun ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  7. Add coconut yoghurt and mix to combine (it won’t fully mix just yet). Slowly add warm water to mixing bowl until a pancake consistency is formed.
  8. Melt some coconut oil or olive oil on a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.
  9. Spoon your mixture onto the frying pan (aim for the size of a large orange), doing one at a time. The goal is to cook these buns slowly on a low heat to prevent burning.
  10. Once these are done, put them side until ready to use!

Simple Recipe – Time to assemble!

  1. Place one of your burger buns down on the plate, spread your pesto sauce over the bun, and top with rocket.
  2. Start stacking your roasted vegetables on top… stack as high as you want!
  3. Grab another one of your burger buns and spread your pesto sauce on one side and place the bun on top of the veggies. Put a skewer through the burger to hold it in place.
  4. Repeat steps for your other burger. Enjoy!
