1 pound lean Australian ground lamb
4 green onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons semi-dried tomatoes, chopped
olive oil for brushing
4 multigrain rolls, halved horizontally
3 ounces baby rocket leaves
⅓ cup hummus
2 tablespoons semi-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon flat parsley leaves


Place the ground lamb in a bowl and add the chopped green onion, cumin, oregano and chopped semi-dried tomatoes. Form into 4 patties and refrigerate 1 hour. Heat a barbecue or char grill pan. Brush the patties with oil and cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.

While the burgers are cooking, lightly barbecue the rolls. Then top the bottom half of each roll with ¼ of the rocket leaves and a cooked burger. Spoon a tablespoon of hummus on top of the burger and scatter with ¼ of the thinly sliced semi-dried tomatoes and ¼ of the parsley leaves. Finish with the top half of the roll.
