Lamb Burgers with Fruity RelishDiabetes Cookbook
The advantage of making your own burgers is that you know exactly what’s in them – and they can taste better while being a really healthy meal.

An orange and raspberry relish adds a lovely fresh flavor to these juicy lamb burgers as well as lots of vitamins. Serve with a green or mixed salad.

IngredientsNumber of servings: 4

  • 14 oz lean minced lamb
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves or 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 rolls
  • salt and pepper
  • shredded lettuce to garnish
  • Orange and raspberry relish
  • 1 orange
  • 3 1?2 oz fresh or thawed frozen raspberries
  • 2 tsp natural brown sugar

    How to make it  30minutes

  • 1

    Preheat the grill. Put the lamb into a large bowl. Add the carrot, onion, breadcrumbs, nutmeg and thyme, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix roughly with a spoon. Add the egg and use your hands to mix the ingredients together thoroughly.

    Divide the mixture into 4 and shape each portion into a burger about 4–5 in. in diameter, or about 1 in. bigger than the diameter of the rolls. Brush both sides of the burgers with oil, then put them in the grill pan. Cook for 4–5 minutes on each side, depending on thickness.

    Meanwhile, make the relish. Cut the peel and pith from the orange with a sharp knife and, holding it over a bowl to catch the juice, cut between the membrane to release the segments. Roughly chop the segments and add them to the juice. Add the raspberries and sugar, lightly crushing the fruit with a fork to mix it together.

    Split the rolls and toast them briefly under the grill. Put a lamb burger in each bap and add some lettuce to garnish and a good spoonful of relish. Serve with the remaining relish.
