I think I worked out that we've had roughly a 1 in 10 chance of a sunny day recently and even less odds that the sunny day will be on a weekend. Today a sunny day landed on a Sunday! So we decided it was barbecue time. I'd recently seen a recipe for making Moroccan inspired lamb burgers and fancied making them instead of the usual beef burgers (although I do love beef burgers). I didn't have the recipe so made up an improvised version, they turned out pretty good.
x1 pack of minced lamb
x1 chilli (the variety of chilli depends on how spicy you want)
bunch of Rosemary
bunch of Mint (I probably would have put a bit more in than in pictured here but my plants were a bit sparse)
a couple of cloves of garlic (NOT a whole bulb as pictured)
1 Teaspoon of Cumin
Half a teaspoon on Cinnamon
a bit of Salt and pepper
a couple of Tablespoons of Olive Oil
Chop all the herbs and garlic as fine as you can and put in a mixing bowl, add the oil and spices and then the meat, mix together, I prefer to use my hands so it really mixes well. Then shape into burgers.
To accompany the burgers I made a Tzatziki, which is really easy and delicious.
3 or 4 generous tablespoons of greek (or thick) yogurt
one third of a cucumber
1 or a half a clove of garlic (depending how strong you want it)
a bunch of mint chopped
a pinch of salt
Scrape out the seeds of the cucumber and grate the cumcumber, try to squeeze most of the water out of the grated cucumber and put in a bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Easy peasy!
