Indian BurgerFit Burger
We love Indian food, so I wanted to incorporate those flavors into a BurgerFit burger. When I think about vegetables used in Indian food, I think of peas and cauliflower!
Servings: 6 Burgers
Utensil for mixing
- 1 lb ground meat
- 1 cup cooked cauliflower You want the cauliflower to be a little soft. I go ahead and cook the entire head of cauliflower so I have some for a side dish.
- 3/4 cup chopped peas The peas can be fresh, frozen, or canned. I go ahead and cook all the peas so I have some for a side dish.
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tbsp curry powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp garlic
Rough chop the whole head of cauliflower, removing the leaves and stem. Add the cauliflower, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ cup of water to a saucepan. Put heat on medium and bring to a simmer to cook the cauliflower, about 10 minutes. Reduce the heat if water is evaporating. You want the cauliflower soft but not mushy.
Once cauliflower is cooked, drain the water and put the cauliflower, peas, paprika, curry powder, and garlic in the food processor (or finely chop). Taste vegetable mixture and add more salt if desired. Let the mixture cool completely.
In a large bowl, add the ground meat and remaining teaspoon of salt. Gradually incorporate vegetable mixture into the ground meat. Add as much as you can while still being able to form your burgers as normal*If you end up adding too much vegetable mixture, don’t worry! Just form your burgers and cook in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Cook burgers on medium heat on the stove for 5 minutes each side or to your preference. Cooking times can vary.
Optional: Eat the rest of the cauliflower and peas as a side dish.
