    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    I am trying to push full forced with my diet to finally reach my 100lbs lost target. So, I am collecting every low fat recipe that looks good to me and this is the latest one. I found it in the April 2009 of BBC good food magazine. The recipe says that the uncooked burgers can be frozen so they would be good to make ahead and have when I need something quick but also healthy.

      Love the lime yogurt sauce! Mine didn't stick together perfectly and could be a bit spicier...also wondering if cooking before freezing would work better. I'll report back after defrosting!

      A hearty bun is a must-have with these burgers--I used regular white hamburger buns and ended up with a soggy mess. A tasty soggy mess, but a soggy mess.

      Very tasty little number. Receipe is bang on - burgers held together well. I didn't have a lime so I had to use lemon but I've made a full batch and froze some, so I'll hopefully try them with lime soon! I'll write another review to say how well they defrosted.
