Makes 14

Ingredients
1kg lean mince
1 onion, quartered 
1 zucchini, cut into 2-3cm pieces
1 carrot, cut into 2-3cm pieces
1 tbsp of dried mixed herbs or 1 small bunch of parsley 
14 wholemeal rolls
1 head lettuce, shredded
4 tomatoes, sliced
14 slices reduced fat cheese
Olive oil spray - if required

Method

  1. Add mince, onion, zucchini, carrot and herbs to a food processor. Process on high for 1 minute or until all ingredients are well combined and the mixture is smooth.
  2. Using clean hands, take a handful of the mixture and form it into a patty shape. Repeat the process to create 14 patties.
  3. Heat a frypan to medium-high heat and lightly spray with oil, or use a non-stickpan. Cook each patty for 3-4 minutes on each side, until brown and fully cooked through. 
  4. Top each patty with a slice of cheese and leave to rest for 1 minute, or until the cheese has softened.
  5. Add the patty, lettuce and tomatoes to the rolls.
