To make:

–          These burgers could not be easier to make – you basically put all of the ingredients, except for the oil, in to a big bowl before mixing together.

–          It’s easiest to mix it all together with your hands to really make sure it’s combined.

–          Make six burgers before brushing with oil and putting under the grill.

–          Cook for 6-8 minutes on each side until they are thoroughly cooked and the meat is no longer pink.

They really are that simple. I served mine with roasted vegetables but they would be great served in a toasted wholemeal pitta with salad for lunch as well.

Enjoy.

Tastier then they look - I promise!
