Hamburger with lactose-free yogurt garlic sauce

25 min
Build your own hamburger with lactose-free yogurt garlic sauce and all the fresh, crunchy vegetables you know and love. Crispy lettuce, fresh tomatoes, and tangy onions are nothing new but try giving the classic a delicious kick with a tasty sauce. It is easy to make and makes your weekday dinners or busy lunches extra flavourful.


  • Fry burgers in a frying pan.
  • Toast the burger buns and cut them in half.
  • For the yogurt garlic sauce, mix yogurt and garlic clove. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Build sandwiches with lettuce, burger patties, tomato, red onion, and yogurt garlic sauce between the two burger buns.

Make sure that you mix garlic and yogurt thoroughly to distribute the crushed garlic evenly. It ensures a balanced flavour in every bite and prevents lumps of garlicky surprises.


If you want to enhance the flavour, let the yogurt garlic sauce rest for 15-30 minutes in the fridge. That way, the garlic flavours get time to meld into the yogurt, giving it a strong taste perfect for a juicy hamburger.
