• 400 g lamb mince
  • zest of 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 0.5 tsp crushed chillies
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 100 g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 large handful of mint leaves, washed and chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cucumber, washed and sliced
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, ground with a pestle and mortar
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds, ground with a pestle and mortar
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 110 ml white wine vinegar
  • 4 ciabatta rolls
  • 2 tbsp bbq sauce


  1. 1

    Put the lamb mince, lemon zest, ground cumin, chillies, garlic, cheese and mint in a large bowl, and mix together with your hands until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

  2. 2

    Shape the mixture into 4 burgers, brush all over with 1 tablespoon of the oil, and cook in a large nonstick frying pan or griddle pan for 5-6 minutes on each side. Set aside on a plate to rest.

  3. 3

    Prepare the pickled cucumber. In a pan over a medium heat, cook the cucumber for 1 minute. Add the ground coriander and mustard seeds, sugar and vinegar along with 15ml boiling water and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until softened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before serving with the burgers.

  4. 4

    Brush the ciabatta halves with the remaining oil and griddle, cut-side down, for 1 minute until golden. Top with a burger and serve with the pickled cucumber and a little of the sauce.
