Put the slices of bread in the sparkling water and soak them for 5 minutes. Squeeze them well and put them in a large bowl.

Put the mince, carrot, zucchini, onion, egg and dill in the bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and add the ketchup and the olive oil.

Knead the ingredients for 2-3 minutes, patting first your hands with some olive oil.

Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and leave it in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.

Preheat the oven to the grill setting.

Shape the mixture into 8-10 burgers (always with oiled hands to prevent the mixture from sticking) and transfer to a slightly oiled baking dish.

Bake for 10-12 minutes on each side until golden but also well-cooked within. Alternatively, bake the burgers in a large non-stick pan (preferably with a ribbed bottom), which has been sprinkled slightly with olive oil.

Check occasionally with knife to prevent becoming dry/overcooked.

Serve them with seasonal salad.
