Lamb & mint burgers


500g lamb mince, white onion, mint leaves 
Making burgers is so quick and simple that I refuse to entertain the idea that there is any excuse for the kind of specimens that come under the category of "convenience food" and "fast food". They're unhealthy, low quality and truly no faster.

1) Finely dice half a white onion and fry in a little basil oil.

2) Add the onions to a blender along with the lamb mince, some freshly chopped mint, a pinch of salt and pepper and blitz.

3) Form patties with your hands, packing the meat quite tightly and either BBQ, grill or cook in the oven. 

I served with fresh lettuce from the garden and ketchup in a burger bun but these are also fabulous with feta and pitta!
