Cut the courgettes into quarters lengthwise and then into small pieces. Take a frying pan and heat a little oil with a clove of garlic, being careful not to let it burn. Add the courgettes and sweat them for about ten minutes. Then transfer them to a bowl and add the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, egg (don't add all the egg white at once in case the mixture becomes too wet), salt, pepper and chopped fresh mint. Mash it all together with a fork and then shape your burgers. Cook in frying pan for a few minutes, turning halfway through.

If you like the idea of a really tasty hamburger, add a little grated strong cheese, like a pecorino or Rodez!
A burger is normally a patty of minced beef, but you can make one from almost anything!
