Prep your ingredients by picking parsley leaves from the stem & finely chop. Wash your carrot and grate on the large holes of a box grater. Peel and finely chop garlic and juice the lemon.
To make the burgers combine the ground beef, baharat, half the chopped parsely, 1t of salt and 1/4t of freshly ground pepper in medium bowl and mix until combined. Shape mixture into two patties about 4in wide and 3/4in thick. Refrigerate to firm up while you prepare the tahini yogurt.
Pre-heat your grill (or grill pan) over media-high. Combine yogurt, tahini, garlic, remaining parsley, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a media bowl – season with salt and pepper.
Grill your burgers, turning once until lightly charred 2-3 minutes per side for medium rare.
To make your lettuce salad whisk the remaining lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large bowl, season with salt and pepper. Remove core from the lettuce and separate leaves. Reserve 2-3 for burgers. Add remaining leaves to bowl and toss to coat.
To finish your burgers, split buns and lightly toast on the grill (or grill pan or skillet) until golden 1-2 minutes. Assemble burgers on buns with lettuce, grated carrot and a dollop of tahini yogurt. Serve with salad and remaining yogurt on the side!
