Lamb & mint burgers with hummus


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal). 
  • Put the chickpeas and stock in a pot and gently cook to warm for 5-10 mins. Then drain, reserving the liquid. 
  • At the same time, heat a little oil in a pan and gently sauté the onion with 2 crushed garlic cloves until tender. Then transfer to a large bowl and toss with the mince, egg, mint jelly and seasonings until well combined, using your hands. 
  • Form the mixture into patties and place on a lightly oiled baking tray and cook in the oven for about 15 mins, turning once. 
  • To make the hummus, process the chickpeas with the remaining garlic, lemon juice, parsley and tahini, adding the oil, salt and pepper through the feeder tube, continually mixing to form a thick paste and adding a little chickpea cooking liquid if needed. Taste for seasoning. 
  • Grill or toast the foccacia. Spread a little hummus on a base and layer with lettuce and burgers. Then spoon a good dollop of hummus on top and press down another piece of bread. Repeat the process.
