Chicken, Pumpkin and Fennel Burgers

I absolutely love these burgers and so do kids, knowing that they are gloriously healthy makes parents happy too. The flavours are just lovely and they are simple and quick to make. I like to serve them with a salad and the app’s swede chips but you could always pop them inside a gluten-free bun too.

Recipe information

Serves 2
15 mins


250 grams chicken mince
1/2 cup pumpkin, grated
1/3 cup fennel, grated
1 egg
1 rosemary sprig
1 handful mint leaves
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 pinch of black pepper
1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons coconut flour
3 tablespoons coconut or macadamia oil


Chop the rosemary and mint leaves then place in a bowl, squeeze in the lemon and add all the other ingredients except the oil, mix well.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan.

Form the mixture into six balls then flatten each one so it's about an inch or so thick. Carefully place them in the frying pan and cook on a medium to high heat for about a minute and a half on each side, then place them on a tray lined with baking paper and cook in the oven for 8 minutes or until burgers are cooked through.
