Healthy Angus beef burger

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.

  1. I always learn new cooking tricks with you!
    Haven’t had burgers with cream cheese yet! I will try them.

    I like to think that burgers are healthy no matter how you make them. What makes them unhealthy is if you eat them every day or you binge eat burgers in one sitting.

    1. So true but my facetious nature comes out so much when I watch and read cooking material that goes on and on about the wonders of kale and quinoa.
      You’re spot on, in excess they’re unhealthy. Wait until you see what I cook tonight 😉
