I don’t eat burgers as often as I would secretly like to, so when I do I want them to be really worthwhile. Full of flavour and super satisfying. This burger has all of that and is also full of wholesome ingredients.
A really good sandwich or roll is so satisfying. Yummy flavour combinations between two pieces of bread and you end up so far from the soggy nightmares of your school days. I’ve been known to happily eat a sandwich for dinner (ummm has anybody not done this?). In reality they’re just another version of a burger and that’s dinner food so why not all other sandwiches? Come on, give me one reason?! They’ve got all the parts of a nourishing meal, complex carbohydrate, vegetables, protein. You can even have a side salad if it’ll make you feel like it’s more of a meal.
Want to know the best part of this post? You can choose any one of these recipes and it can be the only thing you prep for lunch this week. Yep, just one. So clear an hour or two this weekend and get some lunch prep in and you’ll have delicious and healthy food sorted for the week ahead.
Winter is all about comfort food, warming soups, home baked pies and a whole lot of cauliflower, pumpkin and sweet potato for me. And today the focus is on cauliflower. Crispy, golden roasted cauliflower. This is another great winter salad (or wrap!) to add to your rotation.
Spicy and lean chicken burgers make for a super easy any night of the week dinner. Full of protein, extra vegetables in the sauce and omega 3’s from the avocado. You can also serve them with some parsnip fries and a simple salad for a really well rounded meal.
I’ve seen a few pics on Instagram lately of lotus root fritters. I’ve never tried them, but they looked so good and crispy and crunchy so I thought I’d give them a shot. So glad I did, a new favourite lunch was born in these wraps.
I’m really into beets and goats cheese at the moment (such as in this tart!), and the mint and beans in this salad mean it’s also fresh and crunchy, making it another delicious summer salad to add to your rotation.
If you’re after a fun, quick and easy meat free monday idea then this recipe has you covered. I’ve been playing around with veggie patties for a while now and I’m finally really happy with one. This patty has a good ratio of vegetables and legume, and a flavour that doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the burger components, just gets a nice little harmony going on with them. And that’s exactly what I wanted from this burger.
Sometimes all I want is a toasted sandwich. Comfort food ya know? But comfort food doesn’t need to be a total nutritional loss. This sandwich has all the melted cheese and golden bread of your dreams, but with a home made hot and spicy chutney filled with vitamins A, C and E to name but a few. Add in that handful of greens for freshness and a side salad and you have yourself a meal you can be proud of.
