Step 1. Combine the beef, psyllium husk (approx. 2 tsp), dried herbs, and onion (approx. ¼ small onion) in a mixing bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 2. Add the egg and combine with your hands, then shape into a burger. Cover, and leave in the fridge to rest for at least half an hour.

Step 3. Meanwhile, combine the chimichurri ingredients—the parsley, coriander, garlic, chilli, vinegar (approx. 1 tsp) and the MCT oil (approx. 2 tsp)—in a bowl, season to taste and mix to combine.

Step 4. When you’re ready to cook, add one tablespoon of olive oil to the frying pan and cook the burger over a medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking.

Step 5. Serve on a bed of lettuce, alongside the tomatoes, the avocado (approx. ¼ large fruit) and the cheddar. When ready to serve, spoon the chimichurri over the top and enjoy!
