Lamb, Feta, and Black Bean Burgers with Greek Yogurt Tzatziki Sauce

Yield: 5-6 burgers

Burgers:

1 pound ground lamb meat

1/2 cup feta cheese

1 15oz. can low sodium black beans, rinsed and drained

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

5-6 fresh dill sprigs, finely chopped

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Tzatziki sauce:

1/2 cucumber, diced and drained

Salt

1 cup plain greek yogurt

Juice from another 1/2 lemon

1 Tbsp minced garlic

3-4 fresh dill sprigs

1/4 tsp black pepper

   

In a medium sized bowl, add all of the burger ingredients. Using your hands, mix together thoroughly. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out meat mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Refrigerate scoops for 30 minutes. 

While the meat in chilling, combine all of the ingredients for the tzatziki sauce in a bowl and stir to combine. (Make sure to strain the cucumber before mixing it in. I like to use a thin towel or cheesecloth to do this.)

Remove the chilled meat mixture from the refrigerator and press two of the scoops together to form one patty. Repeat this until you have 5-6 burgers. 

You can now cook the patties on the grill or in a skillet. 5-6 minutes/side or shorter depending on how much you like them cooked. 

Serve on your favoite buns with the tzatziki sauce and other toppings. Enjoy!
