400g lamb mince
1 teaspoon onion powder (NOT salt)
1 teaspoon garlic powder (NOT salt)
400g raw beetroot, peeled and grated
200g raw carrots, peeled and grated
Preheat oven to 180 degC (380F)
Lin a baking tray with parchment paper
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowel
Use your hands to really mix well. There should be no visible lumps of meat or clumps of grated vegetables left. This will take about 5 minutes of hand kneading and mixing.
Shape into burgers – about 80-100g each. When forming each burger make sure to squash it together to help it bind
Place on the baking tray
Cook for 25-30 minutes
Either serve directly or allow to cool and freeze. Defrost and reheat before serving again, although can be served cold.
With the veggies in these burgers it is impossible to not love them, its actually the beetroot that gives them a fabulous natural sweetness. If your child has an allergy to sulphites, substitute the onion powder for 1 medium onion finely chopped, and garlic powder for 4 cloves garlic, chopped / minced.
Let me know if you try them, what you and your kids think!
