I am attempting to get my family to adapt to a healthier lifestyle so made my first homemade burgers. I served these with sweet potato fries (3 sweet potatoes worth) as they are a favourite of mine and some broccoli. The burgers came out really well and I can’t believe it’s taken me till now to make them, will definitely be making again in the future.

This recipe makes approx 4 burgers depending on how large/small you want to make them.

 

Ingredients:

500g Turkey Mince

3 Spring Onions

60g grated low fat cheese

 

Method:

  1. Chop the spring onions across ways so they become small circles
  2. Mix the onion with the mince and cheese
  3. Refrigerate for around 15-20 minutes
  4. Grill on a medium heat for approx 25 minutes until they are golden brown

Recipe: Pasta with Homemade Walnut & Lemon Pesto and Peppers

I absoloutely love Italian food so rustled up this yummy pasta dish for dinner. I used my Nutribullets milling blade in order to make the pesto but this can be done with a food processor if you have one.
