I have added cumin as well as mint to the recipe as I think cumin compliments lamb; however you can really add whatever herbs and spices suit your own palate.
After cooking on the grill, I served with a minty yoghurt. This is simply Plain Greek yoghurt mixed with mint sauce (for convenience) and seasoned with salt and pepper as required. On the plate I added grilled butternut squash and fresh rocket salad.
Low Carb Minty Lamb Burgers
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 Medium Onion - finely chopped
- 2 Cloves Garlic - finely chopped or crushed could use garlic paste
- 400 gm Minced lamb
- 2 tsp Mint sauce
- 2 tsp Cumin powder
- Salt and pepper
Cook onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together - onion, garlic, lamb, mint, cumin and season with salt and pepper.
Divide mixture into 12 equal amounts and roll into balls.
Flatten each into a burger shape and then leave to rest in the fridge for at least 10 minutes.
Cook on grill for between 6 and 8 minutes each side ensuring they are thoroughly cooked through before serving.
