Who says you need bread to enjoy the burger experience? This recipe has everything but the roll: juicy beef mince, a tasty sauce and plenty of fresh salad vegetables, too.

ingredients

  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 500g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Very Lazy Chopped Garlic
  • ½ iceberg lettuce, roughly shredded
  • 8 gherkins, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, roughly chopped

for the SW super sauce

  • 3 level tbsp extra-light mayonnaise
  • 5 tbsp fat-free fromage frais
  • 1 level tbsp American-style mustard
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  • ¼ tsp onion granules
  • ¼ tsp sweet smoked paprika

method

  1. Spray a large, heavy-based non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the beef, onion and garlic and stir-fry for 6-7 minutes, or until the beef is cooked through and the onions have softened. Season well.
  2. Meanwhile, put all the SW super sauce ingredients in a bowl with 4 tbsp of water and whisk until well combined.
  3. Mix together the lettuce, gherkins, onions and tomatoes and divide between 4 wide bowls. Spoon the beef mixture on top, drizzle over the SW super sauce and serve hot.
