Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1 orange or yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt, divided
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil, divided
  • 1 lb (500 g) Lean Ground Beef
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) grated or finely diced onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) grated lime zest
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) hummus
  • 2 pocket style pita breads, cut in half
  • Sriracha Mayo:
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) light mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) sriracha

Instructions

  1. Sriracha Mayo: In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and sriracha. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. On a foil or parchment paper lined baking sheet, toss onion, pepper, zucchini, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) of the salt and pepper with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil.
  3. In a large bowl, using your hands mix together beef, onion, garlic, parsley, basil, chili powder, lime zest and remaining salt until well combined. Divide and shape into 8 patties about 3 inches (7.5 cm) in diameter. Use your thumb press centres slightly. Place patties on top of the vegetables and brush with remaining oil.
  4. Roast in preheated 425˚F (220˚C) oven for about 18 minutes or until vegetables are tender crisp. To finish, place under a pre-heated broiler for 3 to 5 minutes just until beef and vegetables are sizzling and crisped up, and each pattie is cooked to 160˚F (71˚C), when tested with a digital instant read thermometer inserted sideways.
