Goat Cheese Spread

  • 12 oz Goat Cheese
  • cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest
  • Salt and Pepper

Pea Hummus

  • 1 ½ cups Frozen Peas
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Mint
  • 1 Garlic Clove


  • 1 lb Ground Lamb
  • ¼ cup Grated Onion
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 Tbsp Finely Chopped Cilantro
  • 1 tsp Ground Pepper
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Ground Coriander
  • ½ tsp Garam Masala
  • ¼ tsp Smoked Paprika
  • ¼ tsp Cumin
  • Pinch Cinnamon


  • Burger bun of choice Gluten free, if needed
  • Thinly sliced roasted beets


Goat Cheese Spread

  • In a small food processor, using a stick blender, or whisking by hand, blend together the goat cheese, heavy cream, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover and chill until use.

Pea Hummus

  • In a medium saucepan, cover peas with water and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, drain well. Place cooked peas, olive oil, lemon juice, mint, and garlic into a food processor, blitz until smoothish. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover and chill until use.


  • In a large bowl, combine lamb, onion, egg, garlic, cilantro, and spices. Gently use hands to get a really good mix going, making sure that everything is evenly distributed and well incorporated. Divide meat mixture into 2-4 evenly sized balls. Flatten each ball into a patty that is roughly the size of your burger buns – maybe a little larger.
  • Grill over medium heat until fully cooked.

To Assemble:

  • Spread goat cheese on upper buns, pea hummus on lower buns. Place burger on lower bun, top with sliced beets and upper bun.
