    Cook’s tip

    Burgers made with lean mince and bolstered by fibre-rich puy lentils and quinoa offer a quick and healthy supper. A spoonful of sun-dried tomato paste lends a rich, intense flavour. Alternatively, you could add whole toasted spices, such as cumin or fennel (lovely with pork), a handful of chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley or basil, some chopped pickled jalapeños or preserved lemons. If making lamb burgers, add a spoonful of Belazu chermoula paste.
