We love making our own homemade burgers, we’ve made experiments galore! Here’s one we particularly enjoyed for you to have a go and explore!
- 2 handfuls of washed fresh spinach leaves
- 1/2 red pepper washed and chopped
- 3 fresh garlic cloves
- 1/2 white onion peeled & diced
- 1/4 cup of buckwheat flour
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2-3 tsps dried chopped mint,
- 2-3 tsps dried chopped basil,
- 2-3 tsps dried chopped thyme,
- A generous pinch of Maldon salt
- Ground pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Add the spinach, onion, garlic, pepper and some water to blend…
Pulse for a few seconds, this is the kind of mixture your aiming for in the end…
Steam your potatoes and mash until fluffy – oh this part is such fun!
Then add all the herbs and seasonings each and every one!
Pour in now, the spinach, pepper, onion and garlic mixture too;And stir and mash again until the mix is completely green right through! Now add the flour which will make the mixture thicker,
Then create your burgers, perhaps using a press like this will be much quicker! Drizzle the tops with olive oil which will give them that extra crunch…
And bake for 30 minutes one side and 30 minutes on the other and they’ll be soon be ready for your dinner or lunch! 👌
We’re on a roll so here’s blog post number 2
A quick protein-full salad especially for you!
Just half a bell pepper and a small onion red
And a spoonful of dried parsley or other herb instead.
A quarter of cucumber and some surrounding greens
And don’t forget a large bowl of cannellini beans!
Then chop up the veggies, dice them nice and small
And place all in a bowl and give a good mix to all.
Pour over a little olive oil and the juice of a lime,
And you’ll have the main base in absolutely no time.
Now take some organic spinach, watercress and rocket,
Place it around the edge of a plate leaving a circular pocket.
And spoon the bean mixture right around in the middle,
And voila! A delicious salad that’ll make you as fit as a fiddle!
Love, the JA ladies
