Burger with the lot
A traditional burger with the lot can be a healthier lunch or dinner simply by following this recipe.

Serves 6
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes


500g lean beef mince*
1 small onion finely chopped
1 grated carrot grated
1 grated zucchini grated
Cracked black pepper, to season

6 seeded bread rolls
12 lettuce leaves 
2 tomatoes, sliced
12 slices beetroot
Reduced fat cheddar cheese, grated* 

*Products available with the Heart Foundation Tick.


1. Mix together beef mince, onion, carrot, zucchini and some cracked pepper. 
When mixture is well combined shape together 6 patties.

2. To avoid adding any fat in the cooking, take a piece of baking paper and a grill pan. Heat the pan over a medium heat and when hot add the patties.

3. Turn patties over after about 6 minutes and cook them on the other side for the same length of time.

4. To assemble slice open six grainy bread rolls. Add to them a couple of lettuce leaves, a burger patty, some sliced tomato, a couple of slices of beetroot and some reduced fat grated cheddar cheese. 

Try using kangaroo mince as an alternative to beef.
