    400g can chopped tomatoes

    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the fries:

   3 baking potatoes, peeled and cut into thin fries

   Low-calorie cooking spray

Method   

Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4 and line a baking tray with baking paper. Put all the sauce ingredients in a pan and bring to the boil. Turn the heat to low and cook, covered, for 12-15 mins, stirring occasionally. Season, set aside.

Boil the fries for 3-4 mins. Drain, return to the pan and cover. Leave to cool slightly, then shake the pan to roughen up their edges. Arrange on the baking tray in a single layer. Season, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and bake for 15-20 mins, or until golden.

Meanwhile, preheat your grill to medium-high. Put the garlic, onion, mince and parsley in a food processor and blend until well combined. Divide into 8 and shape into burgers. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and grill for 12-15 mins, or until cooked, turning halfway.

To serve, divide the lettuce, tomatoes and red onion between 4 plates and top with the burgers. Spoon over the sauce and serve with the fries on the side.
