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
Wholemeal rolls and salad to serve
Place mince, onion, grated carrot, dried herbs, Worcestershire sauce and egg in a bowl.
Roughly mash lentils with a fork and add to the mince mixture.
Wet bread with water and squeeze to remove excess moisture. Add this to the mince mixture and mix through with our hands until well combined.
Shape mince into patties using a 1/2 cup measurement as a guide.
Cook patties on a frypan or the BBQ for about 10 minutes or until cooked through.
Assemble burger on a roll with your choice of salad veggies.
Adding grated carrot and lentils to the mixture increases the amount of veggies and fibre in the burgers and keeps them moist.
Try using chicken or pork mince as a variation to beef burgers. All of these are rich sources of protein, which are important for building strong muscles.
