Servings 2


  • 450 g (1lb) ground lamb or beef (mince)
  • 2 large handfuls flaked almonds 100g / 3.5oz
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • small bunch mint chopped
  • 1 bag salad to serve


  1. Turn your oven to 250C (480F).
  2. Add a big pinch of salt to the meat. Using your hands form into 4 burger patties about 1.5cm (1/2 in thick).
  3. Place patties on a rimmed baking sheet or tray. Drizzle with a little oil and bake for 10-15 minutes or until burgers are browned and no longer pink in the middle.
  4. While the burgers are cooking, fry almonds in a pan on a medium high heat with a little oil until golden brown. Place on paper towel to cool for a few minutes.
  5. Place toasted almonds in a medium bowl with lemon juice, chopped mint, 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and pinch of salt. Stir. Taste and season with more salt and/or lemon juice as needed.
  6. When the burgers are cooked, divide between 2 plates. Top with salsa and serve salad leaves on the side.
