What you'll need:

    • ½ of a red onion
    • ¼ of a green pepper
    • 1 tsp chilli flakes
    • 1 tsp ground cumin
    • 1 tsp chilli powder
    • 1 egg
    • Coconut oil


1. In a large bowl combine the onion, pepper and spices with the mince before whisking the egg and adding it to the mixture.
2. Once the mix is combined, shape into patties.
3. Heat a large griddle pan with some coconut oil and fry for 5-6 minutes a side, or until cooked through to your liking.
4. Perfect served with some fresh salad and some baked sweet potato!
