Beef Burgers with Cauliflower and Tahini Mash
Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients into a food processor and whizz/pulse until mixture has combined, but it still has texture.
  2. Wet your hands as this will stop mixture sticking to them, and form meat mixture into even-sized burgers.
  3. Smear a griddle pan/fry pan with a little olive oil to prevent sticking, and cook burgers for about 2-3 minutes each side, until cooked through (or rare if you like them like this).
  4. Cut the cauliflower into florets and place in a large pan.
  5. Steam in about 2” water until cauliflower is tender, but not too soft.
  6. Put steamed cauliflower into a food processor with all the other ingredients and whizz until a smooth mash. Season with salt/pepper. Can add herbs of choice.

Crunchy Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is almost a complete food on its own….it has a significant amount of amino acids which makes it high in protein. It has a wealth of important minerals – iron, calcium, zinc, potassium, as well as some B-vitamins from its carbohydrate content and small but useful amounts of essential fatty acids. However, on its own, as with most grains, it is rather bland. That said it is incredibly versatile, and I like to cook it up and use it hot instead of rice or wheat-based grains, in its flake form for porridge, or just cold as a basis for some interesting and tasty salads. On top of all this, it is gluten-free! As it can be bland, it is a good idea to toast the grains in the oven for about 10 mins. before you cook it as it gives it a nuttier flavour and makes it a more robust grain altogether.

Olive & Herb Foccacia Bread

I absolutely love making bread – it is incredibly therapeutic and the kneaded dough is very satisfying! This loaf seems to feed loads of people and is ideal for a party. Also, if you grow your own herbs, take a trot round the garden and try out various – marjoram, oregano, basil, sage, rosemary, thyme are all my favourites. I also tend to rummage through my cupboards to see what else I can add, like sundried tomatoes, capers, anchovies, olives…anything goes in my book!
