Gluten free beetroot and lamb burger

Succulent and juicy gluten free lamb burger patties. Great for barbecuing or baked in the oven. Can be enjoyed on their own or alongside your favourite salad. A hit with the whole family; the kids will love them and what a treat in the lunch box!

SERVES: Approx. 6x8cm burgers PREP TIME: 15 mins COOK TIME: 8-10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup spring onions, finely diced
  • 1 cup fresh mixed herbs (basil, chives and parsley), finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons fresh turmeric, finely grated (or 1 teaspoon ground turmeric)
  • 1 cup beetroot, finely grated
  • 500g lamb mince
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Method

  1. In a large bowl place the diced spring onion, fresh herbs along with the garlic, turmeric and grated beetroot and mix well with your hands (gloves work well here to avoid the beet and turmeric staining or you can use a metal spoon, just be sure to mix well).
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until uniform throughout.
  3. Roll out into medium size balls (dessert spoon full of mix) and then flatten into patties for cooking or you can make large patties (tablespoon full of mix) if you are having them as a burger.
  4. Add a small amount of olive oil to a large non stick saucepan (can be cooked on the barbecue) and cook the patties on a medium to high heat for approximately 4-5 minutes for small or 5-6 minutes for large each side. You are aiming for each side to be golden (avoid overcooking – these patties should be moist when eating).

Inspiration

Serve alongside a delicious Cucumber & Coriander Salad with Avocado Salsa or Hummus Dip. For the kids: these patties make great burgers with gluten free buns and a salad.
