Quick beefburgers, garlicky cabbage & courgettes - gluten free recipe

Published 12 September, 2006

Yes, a bit of a funny old mix tonight. The cabbage is from me mam's organic veggie garden, the beef mince comes from a wee farm round the corner who look after their beasts well and the courgettes... well Tesco's organic best.

I can't be bothered with the full rundown tonight, so here's a quick version:

Gluten free beefburgers
Chop an onion and mix with 400g beef mince, salt, pepper and a handful chopped parsely. Form into patties and cool for 20 mins in fridge. Fry for 5 mins (ish) each side, depending on thickness. Let rest for 5 mins before eating.

Garlicky cabbage
A bit of a weird one this - an Italian recipe for cabbage. Fry a couple of garlic cloves in 2 tablespoons olive oil until browned. Remove. Rinse 2 salted anchovies, chop, add to oil and mash with back of wooden spoon until they virtually disappear. Parboil the sliced cabbage for 5 mins, drain, add to oil and cook gently for 15-20 mins.

Courgettes
My favourite way of cooking these fellas - slice lengthways into 1/2 cm thick slices then just fry until brown and caramelised on outside.

Gluten free burgers are so easy to make I don't know why anyone would eat bought ones - they taste much better too. The cabbage was OK, but I prefer other recipes - it's cooked too long for me and so goes a bit soft.
