In my house, every Monday is: Burger Monday!
Each Monday is different and often times we experiment with creating new recipes. Here is one of my favorites! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. In need of a nutritional quarantine clean-up? Feel free to reach out!
1lb. Salmon (chopped or food processed)
About 1 1/2 cuppish cooked Quinoa (cooked in rice cooker with 2:1 water:quinoa ratio)
1/2 chopped yellow onion
4-5 chopped garlic cloves
2-3 stalks chopped scallions
1-2 whole eggs
S + P
Sauté your onion + garlic. Add salmon. Add quinoa. Let cool. Add 1 egg. Is it too dry? Add another. Form in to patties and throw those babies on the burner until golden brown + slightly crispy. We prefer cast iron.
1/4 c plain Greek/European Yogurt
Trader Joe’s ‘Everyday seasoning’
*optional: add Honey to desired sweetness
Mix together + dollop on that bad boy of a salmon patty.
I left the measurements for the salad open. Adjust to the amount of people you will be preparing for.
Baby kale + spinach 🌱
Sunflower Seeds 🌻
Toss your greens with dressing. Add cucumber. Add nuts + seeds. Garnish with avo. Enjoy!!
Olive Oil (about 1/4 C)
Mustard (about 1-2 TBS)
Honey (enough to desired sweetness)
Pepper (your call)
