Makes 6 large patties


  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 1 onion, diced or grated
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2 tablespoons of mixed dried herbs
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 400g tinned lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 2 slices of multigrain bread

  1. Place mince, onion, grated carrot, dried herbs, Worcestershire sauce and egg in a bowl.
  2. Roughly mash lentils with a fork and add to the mince mixture.

  4. Shape mince into patties using a 1/2 cup measurement as a guide.
  5. Cook patties on a frypan or the BBQ for about 10 minutes or until cooked through.
