  1. Preheat the barbecue 40 mins before cooking. It’s ready when the flames have died down and the coals are white and ashy. Alternatively, preheat the grill to high.
  2. Boil the potatoes for 20 mins in salted water until tender, then drain. Put the mince, egg yolk, garlic, lemon zest and parsley in a bowl with some seasoning. Mash with clean, slightly oiled hands to combine, then form into 4 burger patties.
  3. Use 1 tbsp oil to brush the patties on both sides, and brush the pepper halves with another ½ tbsp oil; season. Cook for 6-8 mins each side until the burger are cooked through and the peppers are softened.
  4. Whisk the remaining 2 tbsp oil with the mustard, honey and lemon juice in a bowl. Add 100g spinach and the potatoes; toss to coat.
  5. Split the rolls and grill for 30 secs until golden. Load the bases with 1 heaped tbsp of houmous, the spinach leaves, red onion, pepper, burgers and the bun lids. Serve with the dressed spinach and potatoes.
