For the Pickled Radish

100 g radish

150 ml apple cider vinegar

1 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp sugar

For the Chipotle Chili Sauce

1 red chilli, finely sliced

3 tbsp chipotle hot sauce

For the Tacos

2 packets Dee’s Omega Burgers

2 ripe avocados, halved, peeled and diced in small chunks

1 small pineapple, peeled, core removed and diced in small chunks

75 g watercress

juice of 1 lime

freshly ground black pepper

sea salt

8 small wraps

For the Cuban Corn

2 corn on the cob, halved

2 tsp cayenne pepper

25 g parmesan (or vegan cheese), grated

1 lime

Directions

1Finely slice the radish (using a mandolin if you have one), place in a bowl with the vinegar, water, salt and sugar, stir and set aside.

2In a small bowl mix together the chipotle sauce and fresh red chili and set aside.

3Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place the burgers on top. Cook for 20 minutes until golden and crispy, turning once halfway through.

4For the filling, mix together the avocado chunks, pineapple pieces, watercress and lime juice. Season well with a little salt and a lot of pepper and set aside. Place a small pan of water on to boil. Add the corn and boil for 5 minutes and then drain on kitchen paper. Heat a grill pan and place the pieces of corn in the pan until they become slightly charred. On a small plate stir the cayenne pepper and parmesan (or vegan cheese) together. Roll the hot corn on the cobs in the spicy cheese mixture and serve with fresh lime

5To serve the tacos, warm the wraps in a grill pan, cut the burgers into thin slices and serve everything together with the pickled radish and spicy chipotle sauce so everyone can help themselves.
