Beef & Courgette Burgers
The combination of slightly spicy courgettes and beef in this burger ticks two important boxes – first it tastes so good and secondly it gets more greens into unsuspecting veg-averse children.
Cut the seed section out of 3 or 4 courgettes, shredding the remainder to a residual 300g weight. Fry the shredded flesh in a little oil with a sprinkling of caraway seeds and 2 tbsp of our Chilli Jam.
It will caramelise and brown after 8 or 9 minutes. Spoon the courgette into a bowl with 450g of minced beef, 1 tsp of ground coriander and 2 or 3 tbsp of Red Onion Marmalade.
Combine everything well together then form into equal sized patties before frying and serving with a salad dressed in fruity Mango & Orange Dressing.
Boil a drained can of Butter Beans (400g). Drain the beans then, in a large bowl, mash them thoroughly with a potato masher then a fork while they are still warm. Forcing them through a potato ricer works well too. Stir in 70g of rolled oats and 4 or 5 finely diced cooked beetroots – a shrink wrapped packet should do.
If you like a smooth burger you can pulse it in a mixer or leave a coarser finish by crushing everything together well. Form the ingredients into 4 patties and chill for half an hour or so.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C / Gas Mark 6. Put the burgers on a lined baking sheet, drizzle with a little oil and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until they are firm.
While this is happening, mash the flesh of 2 avocados with 3 tbsp of Garlic Mayonnaise and a squeeze of lime juice to top the burgers before dressing and serving.
Salmon & Sweetcorn Burger
Mix 2 drained cans of salmon with 1 finely diced shallot (or half a red onion), 2 tbsp of Mustard & Dill Sauce and 1 ball of finely chopped Mozzarella cheese. Now add the zest and juice of half a lemon and 2 fresh eggs.
Finally, 180ml of Panko breadcrumbs and a drained can of sweetcorn or 125g of frozen corn.
Form the combined contents into 4 patties and chill for half an hour before frying. Serve between two halves of toasted brioche buns, spread with our Tartare Sauce and topped with a garnish of your choice.
Our Tartare Sauce is smooth creamy sauce, jam-packed with coarsley-chopped gherkins and capers, forming a lovely base for this salmon & sweetcorn burger.
