- Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Place kumara on tray and spray with olive oil. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden and tender.
- Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning. Cook chicken for 3 minutes each side, or until browned and cooked through. Slice thinly.
- Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix cabbage, salad leaves and onion. In a separate small bowl, mix yoghurt and lemon juice.
- Place cabbage mixture on bread roll bases. Top with cucumber, avocado and chicken. Drizzle with yoghurt mixture, then salsa. Add bread roll tops. Serve burgers with wedges.
If you can’t find Mexican seasoning at the supermarket, make your own by mixing together ground cumin, sugar, salt, paprika, chilli and oregano.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free bread and check seasoning, yoghurt and salsa are gluten free.
