🍴 Serves: 4
🕒 Prep: 20 mins Cook: 10 mins


  • 1 onion
  • ½ red capsicum
  • 1 handful mushrooms
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 zucchini
  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  •  ½ cup quick oats (or bread crumbs)
  • 1 egg
  • Oil for frying


  1. Finely dice onion, capsicum and mushrooms (Why not get the kids involved using our Foost first or next knife?)
  2. Grate carrot and zucchini
  3. Place mince, carrot, zucchini, onion, garlic, rolled oats and egg into a large bowl
  4. Mix with clean hands and shape the mixture into patties (refrigerate for 30 minutes if you have time)
  5. In batches, fry or BBQ the patties on low heat. Cook for about 4–6 minutes each side, until cooked through (try not to burn them)
  6. To assemble, top each bun with hamburger patty and salad ingredients (see notes for inspiration)


Use multigrain bread or rolls (or you can use dinner rolls to make small burgers).

Salad ingredient ideas: sliced tomatoes, red and/or green capsicum, cucumber, lettuce, spinach leaves, pineapple rings, beetroot, sliced cheese, avocado, tomato sauce or mustard.

Try baking hamburger in the oven by placing the patties on a baking tray and baking at 180°C for 20 minutes.
