Lean lamb mince

250 g

Beetroot

1 cup(s), coarsely grated

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Goat's cheese

60 g, coarsely crumbled

Olive oil

2 tsp

Red onion

1 medium, cut into thick wedges

Flat bread, pita pocket, light, wholemeal

Instructions

  1. Place the mince, beetroot and garlic in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Use clean hands to mix well. Add the goat’s cheese. Mix until just combined. Divide evenly into 4 portions. Shape each portion into an 8cm-diameter patty. Place on a plate. Place in the fridge and chill for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the onion, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened and lightly golden. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the same frying pan over medium heat. Cook the patties for 5 minutes each side or until cooked through.
  4. Open the pita pockets. Divide the spinach leaves, cucumber, onion, patties and yoghurt among the pockets. Top with mint sprigs, to serve.
