It’s International Burger Day today and thought you might like this ‘Healthy Burger & Fries’ recipe from Tammy Hembrow’s exercise app, Tammy Fit.
Serves 2 | 456 cal
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 ½ tsp olive oil, divided
- 12 oz/340g 95% lean ground beef
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce or steak sauce
- ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
- 2 sprouted whole-grain hamburger buns
- 4 slices tomato
- 2 leaves romaine lettuce
- 2 tsp dill pickle relish
- 5oz/141g white potatoes, sliced into strips
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, cover and cook, stirring often until the onion is softened, 4 to 6 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium-low, uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft, 5 to 8 minutes more. Transfer to a medium bowl and let cool for a few minutes.
Add beef, Worcestershire (or steak sauce) and pepper to the onion and gently combine without over mixing. Form into 2 patties, about ¾ inch thick.
Coat a nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add burgers, reduce heat to medium and cook, turning once (about 5 minutes per side).
For the fries, preheat the oven to 400°F/204°C. Line a pan with parchment paper. Toss the sliced potatoes with ½ tsp olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
To assemble, place a patty on a burger bun with 2 tomato slices, lettuce and 1 tsp relish. Serve with ½ the fries. Save the leftovers in an airtight container for another meal.
