Lamb is always a tricky meat whilst following a slimming friendly diet due to it’s high fat content. There are a few supermarkets whose minced lamb is lower in fat and calories, but it is always best to check the nutritional values of whichever brand you use.

I like to serve two burgers in a wholemeal roll and top with the yoghurt dip from the recipe for Spiced Turkey Bites, but it’s up to you what you choose to serve it with!

These burgers are sooooo delish. The warming Morrocan spices feel really comforting topped with the cool yoghurt dressing. These could easily be adapted to suit different tastes by changing the spice mix  – why not experiment for yourself?

  1. Place the minced lamb into a bowl. With your hands mix in all the herbs, spices and sweetener ensuring that it is fully incorporated.
  2. Mashed the egg into the meat and spice mix, cover with cling film and chill for at least 20 minutes in the fridge. This can be left over night if you're prepping a meal for the next day.
  3. Take the meat from the fridge and divide into 4. Make each quarter into a ball and then flatten until approximately 1 cm thick. Heat a non-stick frying pan on a moderate heat and cook each burger for around 4 minutes on each side. You will not need to add any additional fat to the frying pan as the burgers will contain enough to stop the meat from sticking.
  4. Serve in a wholemeal roll topped with some mint and yoghurt dip!

  1. Made these tonight with the mint yog and butternut squash chips , one of THE best burgers I have ever eaten 🤗 Absolutely gorgeous sorry I ate before taking a pic , but will be making these again very very soon 😘

    1. Hi Debra,

      Baharat is made up of a mixture of spices – allspice, black pepper, cardamon, cloves, coriander seed, cumin, nutmeg, turmeric, saffron, ginger and chilli/paprika. Most large supermarkets stock it, or you could purchase it online 😊

  2. Was looking for a ‘winning recipe’ to enter in our neighbours Burger-Off competition. This won hands down and was a huge hit with everyone. Added some breadcrumbs and used fresh garlic instead of granules. Served in a flatbread with a slice of haloumi cheese, grilled aubergine and pea shoots. Also did a lemon, mint yoghurt dressing. Will most definitely do these again. DELICIOUS!!
