Lamb Burger With Rice And Peas

Lamb Burger With Rice And Peas

Lamb. You either hate it or love it. It is the latter one in my case. To bring some variety into my plate I sometime decide to swap the chicken or beef with leaner parts of lamb. I really like the taste of lamb. Grass-fed lamb is also a significant source of omega-3 fats which is associated with decreased risk of inflammation and heart disease. But putting the benefits aside most of all it is simply delicious. When consumed in moderation as with most of the foods it definitely  deserve a place on a foodie plate. And burger is another venue of exploring and enjoying this meat.

Ingredients

Burgers

  • 1 kg of lean ground lamb
  • 2 Eggs
  • Finely chopped onions
  • Salt and pepper

Rice

  • 1/2 cup of brown rice
  • Pinch of turmeric
  • 1/2 cup of green peas

Prep Instructions

1. In a bowl mix ground meat, eggs, onions, salt and pepper.

2. Form burger patties of hand palm size.

3. Grill each burger for 3-5 minutes on each side on a non-stick pan.

4. In the meantime boil brown rice for 20 mins in a pan. Use what you have, if you have a rice cooker then prepare you rice in a cooker. Recently I tested to prepare my brown rice in a pressure cooker. It takes no more than 10 mins from the moment it reaches the pressure. In a normal pan it takes not less than 20-25 minutes. Remember I am talking brown rice and not the processed of all nutrients white Jasmine or similar. This rice takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare on a very low temp.

5. Mix rice and peas and top it with sliced burger. Or serve the whole burger patty on the rice.

Nutrition Facts & Tips

As always with most of my recipes you can combine them with different types of side dishes. Use green salad or different starch. How about mashed potatoes or grilled veggies. Sky or your pantry is the limit. So always adjust the meals from Work Week Foodie to what you happen to have on hand. It will never have to be exactly like in the recipe. The most important thing is to have the meals ready when it is time to eat. So that you never hit the hunger followed by another fast food binge with over-sized versions.
