Burgers don’t have to be unhealthy. If you make your own you can control what you put in and ensure there’s no nasty fillers. In this recipe we have used grass fed beef mince from the butchers and added some veg to pack in some more power.
Makes 10 burgers
500g beef mince
1 large beetroot
2 large carrots
Grate the beetroot and carrot in a food processor.
Add to a bowl with the mince and add the egg and a good grinding of salt and pepper.
Now get your hands in and give it all a mix and then make into burger shapes. Children often like helping with this stage.
You can make these in advance and leave in the fridge at this point.
Cook in a medium oven for 25 minutes or until cooked through.
The Health Boost tip
Rather than serve with a bun and starchy potato fries, serve with vegetable fries such as sweet potato, carrot or celeriac to further increase the vegetables. We often serve this with smashed avocado to lessen the need for ketchup.
These burgers could also be made into little balls as finger food for hungry toddlers.
You can freeze these burgers before cooking to save time another day.
