Rocket burgers

Ingredients (for 12 burgers):

  • 1 packet (450 grams) chicken mince
  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 bundles rucola
  • 1 bundle basil
  • 1 bundle spring onions
  • 1 big carrot
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 50 grams sesame seeds
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil extra vergine
  • Salt
  • Pepper


Wash the rucola and the basil. Cut the end of the stems of the rucola and sort out all yellow or damaged leaves. Remove unblemished basil leaves from the stems. Clean the spring onions. Peel and cut the carrots into pieces. Chop the vegetables and the basil finely in a blender. Put them into a big bowl. Add the chicken mince, the oats, the flour, the eggs, the crushed garlic and salt and pepper according to taste. Combine all the ingredients well. You should have dough which you can form into burgers. If it is too soft, add some more oats.

Spread the olive oil over a cookie sheet. Put the sesame seeds into a plate. Form the dough into flat, round burgers and roll them in the sesame seeds so they are covered well on all sides. Place them onto the oiled cookie sheet. Bake the burgers in the oven at 190 degrees for 40 minutes. After 20 minutes flip them over so they cook through evenly. The sesame seeds should show a lovely, golden shade. Enjoy!
