- 50g cucumber, thinly sliced

- 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.
- Meanwhile, toss the cucumber with the vinegar and a pinch of salt, and set aside. Mix the garlic into the yogurt.
- Serve the burgers in the toasted buns with the cucumber and yogurt sauce and plenty of salad leaves.
