  • Servings: 1

Source: Everyday Food, March 2010

Ingredients

  • 1-inch piece cucumber, peeled, halved, seeded, and thinly sliced
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 pound ground lamb
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 hamburger bun, toasted

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together cucumber, garlic, yogurt, and lemon juice; set yogurt sauce aside. Form lamb into about a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Sprinkle both sides with coriander and season with salt and pepper.

  2. In a small skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add lamb patty to skillet and cook 3 minutes. Flip and cook just until cooked through (a little pink in the center is fine), 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer patty to bun and top with yogurt sauce.

Cook's Notes

Ground beef or pork are other great options for this burger, instead of lamb.
