Can a beef burger be healthy? Many would argue no. I’d probably agree when I analyse what goes into a burger, but with a little tongue in cheek and just because I like to be contrary, I’ve added quinoa and kale to my burger to make it healthful. Given hipsters like quinoa and kale, it must be healthful (or at least cool).
The secret to making this healthful burger extra tasty is cooking the quinoa in chicken fat and having the kale as part of coleslaw that is mixed with the chicken fat coated quinoa. In previous posts you will have seen how I like to add quinoa to the baking tray while roasting animal flesh so the oily fatty juices add rich flavour to the quinoa.
