Recipe by Rhiannon and Matt
This recipe is quick, great for lunch, high in iron & fibre & suitable for diabetics. Coutesy of Australian food company Santarium's website. I haven't tried this recipe out, so I'll leave it as is and won't muck around with it just yet, but it suggests to cook them in the oven for 5 mins after 5 mins cooking in a frying pan, I think this may be because the burgers may burn if left any longer than that.
