Brakes have boosted its meat-free and vegetarian selection with two tasty hamburger alternatives, a Beetroot, Red Pepper & Quinoa burger and a Spiced Butternut Squash & Quinoa variety.

The first meat-free burger combines beetroot, red pepper, red onion and quinoa, flavoured with garlic, lemon, mint and paprika, coated in batter and a crunchy panko-style seeded crumb. The 130g patties can be deep fried from frozen in six minutes, and come packed in 24s for £29.99, £1.25 each.

The second is a spicy blend of butternut squash, onion, red pepper, spinach and quinoa seasoned with black pepper and chilli powder, coated in a brown rice and wheat breadcrumb. The 113g burgers are packed in 18s for £16.09, or just 90p each. For best results, oven cook from frozen in 20 minutes.

Both burgers provide a tasty and substantial meal served in a bun with fries, or alongside a salad, and can be enjoyed by vegetarians and vegans as well as by meat-eaters looking for a change.
