  • Peel and chop the vegetables and place them in the bottom of the Instant Pot inner pot. Add to the Instant Pot 1 cup of warm water. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 10 minutes on manual.
  • Drain the vegetables and using a tea towel squeeze out the excess moisture so that the vegetables are quite dry.
  • Add the chickpeas and mash the vegetables together.
  • Add the breadcrumbs and mix well.
  • Add the seasonings and make into veggie burger shapes.
  • Roll in the grated cheese so that it is fully covered in cheese.
  • Place the veggie burgers in the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes at 180c/360f. Follow this up with a further 5 minutes at 200c/400f to get that crusty veggie burger texture.
  • Serve warm in bread buns or with a salad (or both).


This recipe made 6 large veggie burgers. When you are chopping up vegetables, because they reduce in size, its hard to get it exactly right for 4 medium burgers.
But they can be frozen, and you can easily make 8 small to medium veggie burgers on the measurements above.
To give you exact amounts I weighed out the vegetables above. But you can of course just use 4 large carrots, 1 medium cauliflower and 4 medium sweet potatoes.
10 minutes on manual in the Instant Pot may seem a lot BUT there is a lot of vegetables, it will take a while to get them to pressure and you want them really soggy when cooked. It also took me 13 minutes before the vegetables went to pressure.
