+ Moroccan Lamb Burgers with a Mint Feta Dressing

Moroccan Lamb Burgers with a Mint Feta Dressing

With Australia Day approaching, I thought I’d share a recipe that’s easy enough for the kids to get involved and make, and one the whole family will love. These Moroccan Lamb Burgers can be pre-made and are great cooked on the BBQ.

You can also use this mince mix to make little meatballs to include in the school lunch.


Burger ingredients:
500 grams of lamb mince
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Zest one lemon, finely grated
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Mint feta dressing ingredients:
100 grams feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons full-fat natural or Greek yoghurt
A handful fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
½-1 teaspoons harissa paste (optional)

For the burger patties:

  1. In a large mixing bowl or food processor, simply mix all of the burger ingredients together until they are well combined (TMX reverse, speed 2-3, using the spatula to push down).
  2. Form into burger patties and cook immediately or refrigerate to cook later, either  on the BBQ or in a frypan.

For the Mint and Feta dressing:

  1. Blend the feta, yoghurt, and mint together until well combined (TMX – chop mint 5 sec, speed 6. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend 5 sec, speed 3-4)
  2. Swirl through the harissa (optional).


  • the lamb patty on a sourdough roll with salad and the mint and feta dressing
  • or for gluten and grain free, serve in a lettuce cup or between two grilled field mushrooms

Substitute the feta and yoghurt with homemade or whole-egg mayonnaise.

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
