Sometimes you just really fancy a burger, well I do anyway, and last night I wanted to knock up one of my hubby’s fave meals. Needless to say it went well, there’s little I can do wrong in his eyes when this kind of food is in front of him 😉

Ingredients to serve two:
(burgers) 500g minced beef
2 inch piece of chorizo chopped into small chunks
Tbsp pesto
Tbsp tomato purée
Tsp anchovy paste
Egg yolk
Tbsp ground almonds
(chips) med sized swede, half a butterut squash or 6 carrots
Tbsp coconut oil
Tsp tamari
(salad) handful of mixed leaves
4 rashers of streaky bacon
Extra virgin olive oil & balsamic
(onions) 2 red onions
Tsp olive oil
1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Method:
– preheat the oven to 180 degrees

– peel your veg of choice and cut into small pencil shaped fries, coat with the coconut oil & tamari and place on a baking tray. Cook for 30-40 mins

– in the mean time, slice the onions and sautée in olive oil in a small pan over a med heat

– at the same time cook your bacon until deliciously crispy, adding any fat that comes off to the onions. Take the bacon out of the pan and put to one side

– add the balsamic vinegar to the onions and continue to cook over a low heat while you sort the burgers out

– place all the burger ingredients into a large bowl and squidge with your hands. Form 3-4 patties and cook for about 5 mins on each side, over a med-high heat in the same pan that was used to cook the bacon

– by the time the burgers are ready the chips and onions should also be done

– put a handful of salad leaves on each plate, lightly dress them with extra virgin olive oil & balsamic and scatter shreds of the crispy bacon over the top. Plate up the burgers & chips and serve with the onions in the middle, along with fresh mayo and ketchup
