Here’s a recipe for basic burgers made with ground meat but with other good things added. I like to “cut” meat with veggies, and if it is ground meat with ground nuts also. Whenever you can add vegetables to your dishes do so–people just do not eat enough vegetables. Make enough for leftovers–they are great with a salad the next day.
12 ounces ground organic turkey or beef
1 large onion, chopped fine, about 1 cup
1/2 cup finely minced fresh parsley
1/2 cup ground walnuts or sunflower seeds
1/2 tsp. ground clove
1 tsp. dried basil
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil or coconut oil
salt and black pepper as desired
Saute onion in 1 Tbsp. oil. Place all ingredients including the sauteed onion in a bowl and mix well. Form into patties. Brown in a skillet with remaining oil on both sides until cooked through. Serve with mustard or ketchup.
