By adding beetroot to rissoles, they become softer and have a wonderful sweet flavour, plus, it’s a really easy way to get more veggies into your day.

Egg(s)

1 medium

Beetroot, canned in brine, drained

450 g, (baby), coarsely grated

Lean lamb mince

Instructions

  1. Squeeze excess liquid from beetroot (see Quick Tip below). Place in a large bowl and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add mince, egg and chopped mint. Mix until well combined. Roll mixture into 8 balls and flatten slightly. Place rissoles on a plate. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place tomatoes, cucumber, onion, feta and oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss to combine.
