Beef burger with quinoa kale coleslaw and Hollandaise sauce

I bet regular readers would have never guessed I would try cooking and eating quinoa. I mean quinoa is a health food that is popular amongst hipsters 

I used Coles homebrand quinoa which just required me to wash and cook for 10 minutes in the microwave oven. It was pretty easy but that said, it didn’t taste as good as quinoa I’ve eaten elsewhere.

I also used a packet Hollandaise sauce for this. I know I should make my own but previous attempts have been failures. Coles was selling this Gravox® brand packet Hollandaise for $2 a packet and for 40 seconds in the microwave oven it is a lot easier to prepare than making my own. Now I’m sure the Gravox® brand Hollandaise contains chemicals to preserve and protect me against pathogens as well as chemicals to maintain consistency and appearance. It probably isn’t as healthy as home made Hollandaise sauce made from scratch.

How do you feel about supermarket prepared versus homemade? I like the convenience factor.
