Serves 8

NB: I used a combination of beef and pork mince, however, this can be substituted for personal preference or if vegetarian, by using other proteins like chicken or jackfruit for veg.

1/2 Red Onion, sautéd in coconut oil
Melrose Coconut oil, for frying burgers and onion
250g beef mince
250g pork mince
1/2 large beetroot finely grated (approx 145g)
1 Tbsp dehydrated quality bone broth stock (I used San Elk)
1 tsp Melrose Essential Reds
1 tsp organic dried Basil
1 tsp organic dried Cumin
1 tbsp Almond Meal (15g)
1 tbsp Melrose Balsamic Vinegar.

Sauté onion until soft and then mix all ingredients together by hand (do not use a food processor as may overmix). Spoon out ~1/4 cup portions and pan fry in pan heated with Melrose coconut oil. Press down with fork and sear both sides to lock in flavour. Cook approx 3-5 mins on each side or until browned and cooked through to your liking. Serve with carrot and beet chips and side salad.

Blend the nuts in a food processor or blender until finely chopped.Pour blended nuts into a mixing bowl, add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until combinedAdd melted coconut oil to the dry ingredients, and combine well. Add a natural sweetener if you like it sweeter. If the mixture is really wet, add some extra chia seeds (or almond meal, psyllium husks etc) to thicken it up. If it’s too dry, add some extra coconut oil.Line a baking pan with baking paper. Tip the mixture in, press it down and smooth out with the back of a spoon. Pop in the fridge for 30 minutes or so to set.When set and hard enough to cut, lift the whole lot out on to a chopping board. Cut into squares, rectangles or whatever shape you are feeling! Enjoy!
