Think of these as a veggie burger without the bun. Meaty aubergine is given a new lease of life when covered with a stringy Gruyere or salty Feta cheese and baked in the oven. These tasty sliders would be perfect served with salad in a pitta pocket, with a dollop of tzatziki on top or if you'd prefer, with or without a seedy burger bun.

Here's another option that's great for kids. Little people will love the sweetness of the... you guessed it... sweet potato in this lovely breaded crust. You could serve these with a mixed salad and some tangy chutney or they'll also worked well dressed like a normal burger. Don't forget, sweet potato counts as one of your five a day so it's not actually a carb overload if you eat bread with them too!

The soft texture of these chickpea burgers makes them great for kids and the pulses mean they're packed with protein too. We think they're even tastier with a few pickles, a squirt of American mustard and some melted Stilton on top but equally, you can keep things simple and just enjoy the nutty flavours.
