Make your mince go furthur!



  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 175g (6 oz) mushrooms
  • 500g (1 1/4 lb) lean beef mince
  • 4 tablespoons fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tablespoon tomato purée
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • flour, for shaping


1. Place onion and mushrooms in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Add mince, breadcrumbs, herbs, tomato purée, salt and pepper. Process in bursts for a few seconds at a time, until mixture binds together but still has some texture.

2. Mould handfuls of the mince mixture into burger patties using lightly floured hands.

3. Using a large frying pan or griddle, cook the burgers for 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until evenly cooked.

4. Serve with relish and salad, in burger buns or pitta breads.
