Crispy Onion Bits

1 C (250 ml / 120 g) onion, diced
¼ C (60 ml) corn flour
2 Tbsp (30 ml) almond milk
2 tsp (10 ml) nutritional yeast
½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt
½ C (125 ml / 62 g) cake flour
sunflower oil, for deep frying

To Serve

4 (320 g) Fry’s Traditional Burgers
4 burger buns
160 g cos lettuce
8 lime wedges

Coconut Cream

Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season to taste.


Stir all of the ingredients together.

Crispy Onion Bits

Stir the onions, corn flour, almond milk, nutritional yeast and salt together. Toss this mix through the flour to coat each piece of onion evenly.

Heat the oil for deep-frying over medium heat to 180 °C.

Fry the onion bits in batches until golden and crisp – about 1-2 minutes and then drain on kitchen towel.

To Serve

Cook the Fry’s Traditional Burgers on a braai/barbeque over medium heat coals until heated all the way through.

Cut each bun in half and spread some of the coconut sauce onto the base of each bun. Add lettuce leaves and top it off with the burger patty and salsa. Scatter crispy onion bits on top and serve with lime wedges on the side.

TIP: For extra crispness, toast the cut-sides of each bun over the warm coals until lightly charred, about 1-2 minutes.
