This morning I was supposed to enjoy a nice un-rushed breakfast for Task 9 of the 30 Day Health Challenge. Well that was a bust because both children woke up before I could even prepare breakfast.
Anyway, I still managed to do breakfast- garden burger, boiled cassava instead of the cassava chips, and a strawberry smoothie.
Here’s the Garden Burger.
1 1/2 cup cooked lentils
3/4 cup split pea flour
1/2 large carrot
4 ounces pumpkin (just average like I do)
1 clove garlic
1/4 white onion
1/4 red onion
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 long scallion
Grate carrot and pumpkin and set aside in a bowl. Blend onion,garlic, scallion and chive and add to carrot and pumpkin. Add remaining ingredients except split pea flour and mix well. Add flour and mix again making sure it is completely combined.
Shallow fry until edges become crispy.
For baked burgers, add 2 tbsp of oil to the mixture. Form burgers into desired size and place on a greased baking tray and bake until the edges begin to get crispy. Flip patties and bake until the burgers are dark brown.
Hope you enjoy them as much as my son and I did. We all ate breakfast together, my son, daughter and I. It was not a rushed breakfast but it was a bit stressful as my son had A LOT of energy this morning. But, I’ll try this again tomorrow 😉
