Combine all of your ingredients in a bowl (if you want a chunky, meaty patty, be sure not to over scrunch it).

Split your mixture into 6 generous patties.

They are ready to cook at this point BUT if you need them to bind more, add a splash of water and/or stick your patties in the fridge to set for at least an hour.

Add 1 tsp groundnut oil into a pan on high heat. Pop in your patties and let them seal for 4 minutes on one side. Flip them over and reduce the heat to medium. They will likely need 10-15 minutes to cook through thoroughly and they must be cooked through thoroughly. Keep turning them so they colour evenly on both sides.

Finish up with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and serve in a bun or between lettuce leaves (naked) for an even healthier dinner.
