Whoever has told you that you can't have a burger whilst you are following an exercise plan is a total liar. At Results with Lucy, we LOVE our burgers. As we are feeling the love today, we thought to give you the recipe of one of our favs.
Don't think mustard is bad for you. Everything in moderation, of course. But the seeds from mustard contain rich source of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. Another great ingredient in this recipe is garlic. Forget about the effect it might have on your breath as evidence-based research suggests that garlic may be effective against high blood pressure, heart disease, cholesterol, colds and some cancers. Don't be a vampire - eat the garlic!
Anyway, enough of me going on about how amazingly healthy this burger is. Just try it for yourself and enjooyyy!

Heat the oil and sauté the onion and garlic for a few minutes until softened. Tip into a large bowl and allow to cool slightly.
Add the beef mince, mustard, soy sauce, parsley and chilies to the onion and garlic mix.
Mix thoroughly so all of the ingredients are combined. Shape into 6 burger patties with your hands.
Brush the burgers lightly with oil and cook on a hot barbeque and grill for around 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
