Middle Eastern Lamb Burgers are a delicious and flavorful option for those following a keto, low carb, or paleo diet. These burgers are seasoned with ground cumin, salt, and ground red pepper for a spicy kick. They are made with lean ground lamb and cooked on the grill for a smoky flavor. Serve the burgers in pitas with spinach leaves, sliced tomato, sliced onion, and a tangy yogurt sauce. Top it off with some mango chutney for a burst of sweetness. This recipe is perfect for a summer cookout or a weeknight dinner.

Step 1 : Preparation

Combine regular oats, cold water, ground cumin, salt, and ground red pepper in a food processor blender. Process until mixture forms a paste.

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add the lamb patties and cook, covered, for 3-4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.
