- Prep time: 30 minutes
- Calories: 700
- 1 of Garlic Clove
- 2 of Turkish Roll
- 1 Small Bunch of Mint
- 2 of Carrot
- 1 of Red Onion
- 280 g of Lamb Mince
- 1⁄3 Cup of Panko Bread Crumbs
- 80 g of Garlic Aioli
- 2 1⁄2 Tbsp of Mediterranean Spice Mix
- 1 75g Pack of Baby Spinach
- 300 g of Sweet Potato (Small)
- 1 of Tomato (small)
Prepare Ingredients:Preheat the oven to 200°C. Peel and mince the garlic. Roughly chop the mint leaves, discarding stems. Peel and cut the carrots and sweet potato into 1 cm thick sticks. Peel and cut the red onion in half; thinly slice half into rings; small dice the remaining half. Slice tomato into rings.
Make Fries:Place the sweet potato and carrot on a lined baking tray. Season with salt, pepper and spice mix, reserving 2 tsp. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to thoroughly coat. Roast, stirring halfway through, about 20 minutes (see tip), or until tender and browned. Remove from the oven and set aside. Leave the oven on.
Make Burgers:While the carrot and sweet potato are roasting, combine the lamb mince, bread crumbs, remaining spice mix, minced garlic, mint and as much diced onion as you’d like (you may have extra)in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to incorporate, form into patties using your hands.
Cook Burgers:In a large non stick pan, heat olive oil on medium until shimmering. Add the patties and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Transfer cooked burgers to a plate; when cooled slightly, split patties in half cross ways (see tip). Set aside in a warm place.
Toast Bread:Cut the bread in half. On a second lined baking tray, add the bread, cut side up and drizzle with a little olive oil. Add to the oven when there is only 3-5 minutes remaining for the patties.
You Plate It:To assemble the burgers, spread a thin layer of the garlic aioli onto the insides of the bottom of the toasted bread. Place as much of the onion rings as you’d like onto the bottom halves of the buns then top with a burger patty and baby spinach and sliced tomato. Serve with carrot and sweet potato fries and your choice of beer. Enjoy!
