If you're wanting a quick, light but super delicious meal - this is for you! These no bun burgers (but were using lettuce cups instead!) are the real deal! 

Makes 6 large burger patties (serves 4-6)

500g beef mince 
1 large zucchini, grated 
1 medium carrot, grated 
2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
1 tsp cracked pepper
1 tsp salt
1 garlic clove, finely grated
1 egg
1 tsp dried rosemary

1 brown onion, sliced thinly 
6 large lettuce leaves 
2 tomatoes, sliced thinly 
2-4 slices of cheese (optional) 
1 avocado, sliced 
Tomato sauce, mustard or mayo (whichever you prefer!) 


  1. Heat a small splash of olive oil over a medium to high heat. 
  2. Add 1 brown onion (under "extras") to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until cooked through and beginning to brown. Set aside once cooked. 
  3. Place all ingredients under "patties" into a bowl and mix together thoroughly.
  4. Using a small handful of the mixture, roll into a ball and then flatten into a patty.
  5. On a non stick pan, heat a small splash of olive oil over medium to high heat. 
  6. Cook each patty on each side for 3 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. 
  7. In a lettuce cup, add the patty, cheese, tomato, avocado and cooked onion. Top with the sauce of your choice. 
  8. EAT!
