Spiced Burgers with Mango Salsatick-150x150[1]  BBQ1-150x150[1] healthy Makes 4

  • 500g lean, fresh beef mince
  • 1 onion, peeled and grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped coriander
  • —————————
  • 1 large, ripe mango, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped mint
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander
  • Juice of a lime
  1. In a large bowl, mix all the burger ingredients together. (Top 7 ingredients)
  2. Shape the mixture into 4 burgers, then, cover and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes or more.
  3. Mix all the salsa ingredients together in a bowl. (Bottom 6 ingredients) Cover and set aside, but not in the fridge.
  4. Cook the burgers on a BBQ, or griddle, or in a frying pan, having brushed with a little oil, for 6-8 minutes each side, until cooked through. Keep the heat medium so you do not char them.
  5. Serve burgers with the salsa, with or without the buns and fries.

I don’t recommend frozen mince as it generally holds too much water to stick together.

This is a good recipe for doubling, putting in a tub and freezing for another meal, or for if there are only two of you.
