You know what I really miss? Hamburgers! Mmm ...
Recently I saw a photo on Facebook where someone had switched out the burger bun with sweet potato, which got me thinking ... surely I could make the entire burger grain-free. Turns out I can! And they're super yum.
The only draw-back to whipping up a batch of burgers is that Jelly (who lives permanently indoors) just about goes out of his mind with the delicious smell wafting around the kitchen. Check out his sad, pleading face
"Please give me some mince mum!"
Here's the recipe - enjoy!
Burgers! Grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, low fodmaps
(and still delicious, honest!)
Makes approx 15-20 burgers depending on how big you make the patties
1 Kg Beef mince
1-2 Zucchini (aka Courgettes) or carrots
1/2-1 Cup Almond meal (check that your brand is gluten-free)
Grate the zucchini, and then pat it dry with a paper towel (otherwise it'll add too much moisture to the meat patties).
Mix all ingredients (including the zucchini) together and shape into patties.
Pan fry until cooked (turning occasionally).
Note: If fodmaps aren't a problem for you, you might like to add some fried onion and spices to your burger mix.
Slice kumara (that's sweet potato for those of you outside of New Zealand) into rounds and roast until ready. We use an air fryer and it takes about 20 minutes.
Make it a meal
Assemble the burger, adding any yummy noms you like - I like to add a fried egg, some cucumber and spinach. Ooh delicious!
Eat and enjoy!
