Apologies for the lack of updates. What with going back to work after the Easter Holiday I lost my cooking mojo. I cooked a dire cake at the weekend and it knocked my confidence even more…but I’m back!
In this months Delicious magazine there is tonnes of fab sounding recipes…to be honest most of this weeks dinners are based on Delicious recipes. Tonight we tried lamb, pistachio and mint burgers. The only alterations I made was to use couscous instead of bulgur wheat, cook them in the oven and omit the sultanas (don’t get me started on fruit in savoury dishes!) The burgers were really, really delicious and we’ll be trying them again soon.
Lamb, Pistachio & Mint Burgers
Makes 4 small burgers
300g lamb mince
2 tbsp pistachios, chopped
1 tbsp mint
1 tsp garlic paste
1) Preheat oven to 200oc. Pour boiling water over couscous, until it is just covered, stir. Cover bowl in cling film and leave for 8 min. After 8 min there should be no water left. Fluff couscous up with a fork
2) Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl (I find it easier to use my hands to make sure the ingredients are thoroughly combined). Shape into 4 burgers. Cook on a lightly oiled baking tray for 25-30 min.
