Place mince in a bowl and add grated onion and parsley and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and mustard. Test for seasoning by nipping off a piece of the mix and frying in a little oil and tasting. Adjust if necessary.

Shape into fat rounds on a floured board, and fry in oil until browned on both sides and around the edges, because these are thick burgers. Test for to make sure they are ready, by pressing with a finger. The burgers should be springy but firm for cooked through.

For the sauce, place spring onions, parsley and lemon juice in a blender and whizz. While the motor is still running add olive oil to give a smooth, bright green and irresistible sauce. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Halve buns and line with frilly leaves. Perch burgers on top of bottom half and spoon sauce over. Top with lid.
