I often get asked how to eat clean and healthy without restricting what you love – eg. burgers! I find that the most exciting part about transitioning into a healthy lifestyle is finding the things you love to eat most and making them a clearner version. These burger patties are so healthy but also soooo yummy it will kick your craving for burgers instantly.
I used 500g of grass-fed beef mince, but you can use any mince you wish – this recipe also works for turkey, pork and chicken mince. The herbs are all optional, but they do have a huge impact on the flavour making them fresh and full of flavour.
Ingredients (makes ~10-12)
- 500g Grass-fed beef mince
- 2 eggs
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 red onion
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- 1/2 zucchini
- 1/2 cup grated broccoli & cauliflower
- 1 tsp coriander seeds
- 1 tsp paprika
- 2T tamari sauce
- 1/4 cup buckwheat flour (or almond meal, or coconut flour)
- 3T diced coriander
- 3T diced mint
- 2T diced parsley (optional)
- 2T Olive Oil (1T add to mix, 1T for cooking)
- Simply add all the ingredients into a big bowl and mix through with your hands until all ingredients are combined. If the mixture is too wet to roll into patties, add more flour until ingredients can roll into balls.
- Roll into 10-12 reasonable sized patties and set aside.
- Heat Olive oil in frying pan until hot and then brown patties and cook them approximately 5 minutes on either side until cooked through.
- Serve in bread, or lettuce cups with beetroot, relish, cheese, tomato and cucumber.
