  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • spray oil, such as Fry Light
  • 1-2tbsp spice mix, such as M&S Spice Mix 
  • 400g lamb mince 
  • 50g cucumber, thinly sliced 
  • splash of white wine vinegar 
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed 
  • 100g natural yogurt
  • 4 small burger buns, toasted 
  • large handful salad leaves

Swap the lamb for lean turkey mince for a healthier option.


  1. Cook the onion with a couple of sprays of spray oil in a non-stick frying pan until soft. Add the spice mix and cook for a couple of minutes. Mix the lamb mince with the onion mixture, then season and shape into small patties. Leave the burgers in the fridge until ready to cook.
  2. Wipe out the frying pan with kitchen paper and add a couple of squirts of spray oil. Fry the burgers for 8 mins, then turn them and continue to cook for around 5 mins or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, toss the cucumber with the vinegar and a pinch of salt, and set aside. Mix the garlic into the yogurt.
  4. Serve the burgers in the toasted buns with the cucumber and yogurt sauce and plenty of salad leaves.
