Chicken and vegetable burger

A healthy twist on a familiar favorite. Not just your average burger.

Shopping list:

  • 500 grams chicken thigh mince
  • 1 zucchini, finely diced
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 1 brown onion, finely diced
  • 1 red capsicum, finely diced
  • ¼ bunch finely chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ bunch chopped fresh continental parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • Vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon ground garam masala
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • Breadcrumbs (optional)

  • Step 1

    In a mortar and pestle, grind the spices together until they are a fine dust.

  • Step 2

    In a large fry pan with a little vegetable oil, saute the diced vegetables together with the spices until the vegetables have started to soften.

  • Step 3

    In a large mixing bowl, add the chicken mince, vegetable and spice mix, eggs, tomato paste and fresh herbs together in a bowl. Season with sea salt and cracked black pepper.

  • Step 4

    Mix well, then if mix is too wet, add some breadcrumbs to the mix to dry it out so that you can form patties.

  • Step 5

    Form the patties, then let them rest overnight in the fridge. Either freeze them in layers between glad wrap, or cook on a flat bbq plate or grill plate for around 3-4 minutes each side.

  • Step 6

    Serve with your favourite toppings between a toasted hamburger bun. Enjoy!
