Quick lamb recipe – burgers with a bite


Featured in this month’s ocadolife magazine, our juicy lamb and chickpea burgers with beetroot slaw and feta are quick and easy to make. Feta and mint bring a touch of Mediterranean flavour, while the spicy harissa paste adds an extra kick.


  • 400g chickpeas
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tsp rose harissa paste
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1 tbsp mint
  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 180g feta cheese, crumbled
  • Half a red onion, finely sliced
  • Half a lemon, juice only
  • 250g raw beetroot
  • 3 tsp pomegranate molasses
  • 6 burger buns of your choice


  1. Tip the drained chickpeas, garlic, harissa and herbs into a food processor and blend until fairly smooth.
  1. Scrape into a bowl and add the lamb mince and egg. Season with salt and pepper and stir well until completely combined.
  1. Shape into 6 patties and grill for 3–4 mins on each side until cooked through.
  1. To make the slaw, place the onion slices in a bowl and sprinkle over the lemon juice. Add the remaining ingredients, toss together well and season with a little salt and pepper.
  1. Assemble the burger in a bun – soft white, seeded or ciabatta rolls will all work. Layer lettuce, sliced tomatoes and slaw as you wish, and crumble the feta over the top.
