Method – visit the Gousto website for the full info on ingredients in the box.

Preheat the oven to 240°C/ 220°C (fan)/ 475°F/ Gas 9

Cut the potatoes (skin on) into wedges

Add the wedges to a baking tray skin-side down (to prevent sticking) with a drizzle of olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper

Put the tray in the oven for 30 min or until golden

Meanwhile, drain and grate the beetroot into a sieve (over a bowl), then press and squeeze to release any excess juice (you’ll use this later!)

Season the grated beetroot generously with salt and pepper

Chop the tarragon finely, including the stalks

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Combine the grated beetroot, oats, garlic and egg(s) with half of the tarragon (you’ll use the rest later) and mix well to combine thoroughly

Make 2 (4) patties from the burger mix, squeeze them until they hold their shape, then place in the fridge to firm up

Tip: If you’re feeling the love (and a little adventurous), try making the patties into heart shapes!

Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the onion(s)
Add 1-2 tbsp olive oil to a large, wide-based pan (non-stick!) over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 5 min until the onion has softened slightly

Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the reserved beetroot juice and cook for a further 5 min or until caramelised

Transfer the onion and beetroot to a plate, reserving the pan for later

Meanwhile, combine the vinegar, mayonnaise and the remaining tarragon with 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) olive oil for the herby mayo

Season lightly with salt and pepper

Place the ciabatta on an oven-proof tray and put them in the oven for 6-8 min or until hot and crusty

Meanwhile, return the reserved pan to a medium heat with 2-3 tbsp olive oil

Once the oil is hot, add the beetroot burgers and cook for 4 min on each side or until lightly caramelised and hot through

Assemble the burgers with some caramelised onion and a little mayo on top

Serve with the potato wedges and the rest of the mayo to the side
