I am a denier of Burger King and Mc Donald’s since years. No, not because of calories and fat, but I just can not stand the tase, not even the smell you get when stepping inside of the restaurants. I tried the hamburger when I was a kid, but never liked it. Though I was pretty obsessed by the Mc Flurrys Ice Creams and Apple Pies.
Sandro asked for burgers the other day and I was intrigued to create a homemade version where I know what’s in it and where I can choose the combo. I wanted to do a beanless one, since most of the healthy burger recipes include beans and I am not a huge fan of beans. I have to say, these turned out perfectly and Sandro approved them 100%.
I will add them to Kierston’s #RECIPEFRIDAY campaign!!
Ingredients for 6 Patties:
500g ground beef
2 heaped tbsp ground flaxseed
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
I used this mix of parsley and garlic – I got it in Spain and I put it in almost everything, it’s so good!!
Cook up a small amount of water in a pan.
Chop the carrots and add them to the cooking water, cook until smooth. Set aside.
Mix the ground meat with all the spices, eggwhites, flaxseed and nutritional yeast with a fork. Mix and knead well until well combined and thickened.
Mash the carrots and add to the meatmix.
Form 6 patties.
Heat up a skillet (medium heat) covered with 1 tsp olive oil or cooking spray.
Cook the patties over medium heat for about 10 minutes all in all until well done on the inside – flip occasionally.
I served mine plain with a side salad.
Sandro enjoyed his (read: THREE of them) with mustard, ketchup and salad in a wholegrain bun. They had the perfect consistency on the inside and tasted really delicious. We had some leftover ones and you bet I had one as a snack the next day – they taste even better after sitting a few hours in the fridge!
Cold leftovers, yay or nay? I admit, I absolutely love cold leftovers. Faves are leftover spaghetti roasted in eggs, or cold pizza. Hmmmmm.
