With the start of Spring in Australia people also start to look for more summer foods such as burgers! This is a great recipe to give you some veggies with your burgers in case they get missed as a side dish😳. I know it happens. So hide some veggies in there where no one can see them and know your family is having a complete meal all in one. Add some seasoning of your choice to mix it up!
Prep: 25 mins
Cook: 10 mins
What you need:
•1 zucchini, grated
•14 oz. (400g) lean, ground beef
•1 cup (185g) quinoa, cooked
•2 cloves garlic, minced
•1 egg, beaten
*1 tsp. salt and pepper
*2 tbsp. olive oil
What you need to do:
Grate the zucchini and squeeze out any excess moisture using some clean kitchen towel.
Transfer the zucchini into a bowl. Add the beef, quinoa, garlic, egg, 1 teaspoon of salt, and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Combine all the ingredients together using clean hands.
Form the mixture into 8 patties. Heat a part of the oil in a grill pan over medium-high heat, and cook the burgers 5-6 minutes each side. They can also be cooked on the BBQ.
The burgers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
