Method

  1. Mix together the mince, garlic, onion, carrot, dried herbs and fresh herbs. Season well, then shape into four burgers. Cover and chill until ready to cook.

  2. To make the tomato and onion relish, put the red onion, tomatoes, vinegar and mustard into a bowl. Season, toss together and leave to marinate while cooking the burgers.

  3. Pre-heat the grill, barbecue or chargrill pan. Cook the burgers for 6-7 minutes on each side.
