I finally made my Black Lake Burger inspired by the Harry Potter Series (Goblet of Fire). I am obsessed with the black lake, the aestetics, the story from the book, deepwater, creatures like waterdemons and merpeople.  When I created this burger I had the imagination of the merpeople eating this burger within their colony and one of the hungry merpeople is asking for another one and the mother mer says: AAAAAAHHHHH ONLY ONE!! 


I am glad that I am a witch because I had two burgers of course. No sides, just enjoying the two burgers. I used big sesame bagels, radish sprouts,  raw beetroot tartare sauce, creamy turmeric mushrooms in white wine, gin pickles, sauerkraut, cherry tomatoes and mixed lettuce. Hungry already? Let me show you how to make it.


For 1 hungry muggle or 2 little snuggle muggles:


- 2 sesame bagels
- 2 fishburgers (SoFish) 
- half a chiogga beetroot (thinly sliced)
- 2 handfuls of lettuce, sauerkraut and sprouts
- 8 cherrytomatoes
- 8 slices of cucumber


Bake or toast the sesame bagels. Slice the tomatoes and the cucumber. Fry the fishburgers in canola oil for 4 minutes on each side until crispy.


Raw beetroot tartare:


- 2 tbsp vegan mayo
- half a chiogga beetroot (small)
- 1 tbsp fresh dill
- juice of half a lemon + zest
- 2 gin pickles
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- salt and pepper
- few mint leaves (sliced)


Slice all the ingredients as fine as possible. Add the mayo and mustard. Mix until combined and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Creamy mushrooms:


- 9 butternut mushrooms
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 garlic clove
- splash of vegan white wine
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- salt and pepper
- 1 tsp turmeric
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 tsp of nooch

- 1/2 oat cream 


Fry the mushrooms on medium to high heat until golden brown and crispy. Add salt and pepper straight away. Helps the mushrooms to release their moisture. Add all the spices and let the flavours mingle for 3 minutes. Stir so it doesn't catch the bottom of your pan. Then deglaze the pan with the white wine. Let that evaporate and then add your oat cream. Let the sauce reduce and season with salt, pepper and lemon juice.


Construct how you like it but this is how I did it:


Bun - sauce - lettuce - sprouts - beetroot - sauerkraut - burger - repeat veggies again - tomato - cucumber - creamy mushrooms - lid
