Homemade Lamb Burgers "a la Purple" | You've Got Meal!

Take that for a title, internet! Honestly I had no idea what to call this other than lamb burgers, but it does have a powerful purple touch because of the veggies used. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

For 400 grams of minced lamb meat, prepare an infusion of spices: smoked paprika, ground ginger, cardamom, garlic powder, salt, pepper.

Also, mix in the burger meat a small amount of olive oil  and 1 egg or 2, this will help bind the lamb together. The rest of the burger components are red onion, beet, fries and a yogurt- garlic sauce that I will get to a bit later.

The onion and the beet I’ve cooked in the oven (just clean them, wrap them in some thin foil with some olive oil and salt, cook the onion for 20 minutes and the beet for twice more- I had a big beet) . This will give you sweet, juicy vegetables that bright up the plate. Oh, and the fries you just make them by frying potatoes, I think J.

We also served the burgers with sime small tempura zucchini, that turned out really nice, semi-crunchy and fresh..

A quick note here: I didn’t have and I was too lazy to go buy, but some crispy iceberg salad and fresh tomatoes work really well here.

Now, the sauce:  greek yogurt, salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil, a crushed clove of garlic, finely chopped mint. Mix everything together, balancing the oil and the lemon juice.

Place all the components in a warmed bun, grab a cold beer (a chilly Spitfire works for me with these burgers) and remember summer. It’s only 6 months before it comes back again….. L
