Budget Rating Scale:


2 lbs. (pounds) ground lamb

½ tsp. ground coriander seed

½ tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. ground cumin

½ tsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped

Few pinches of sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 cloves of minced garlic


Mix all ingredients well (by hand is the best method.)

Use an ice cream scoop to form balls and then work into small lamb burger patties.

Grill lamb burgers on the barbeque – grill for a few minutes either side (be careful not too over-cook, otherwise lamb burgers will become dry.)

Serve lamb burgers on top of broiche bread (or regular burger buns.) Slice the bread or the bun and ‘punch out’ rounds of bread with a glass.

Blend a tangy yogurt to serve with the burgers – mix 2 cups yogurt, lemon zest, juice of one lemon (the equivalent of ½ a cup), sea salt and 10 grinds of freshly ground pepper. Place burger on top of bread, add a dollop of yogurt, lettuce and thinly sliced tomatoes and serve.

Travel Tip if you’re heading to Morocco:
Don’t Pack your “Packages” – Minimize your "footprint" in foreign countries by limiting product packaging and bringing re-usable containers for things like toiletries rather than “one-time use” travel size containers, which just add to waste in foreign countries.
