Ever thought of making your own burgers? Homemade is the way to go and super easy too! Don't let a strict diet restrict your taste buds. Burgers are always seen as unhealthy, but it's really all about how you prepare them. Always opt for lean minced beef, being a good source of protein as well as iron vitamin B12 and CoQ10. Try out these tasty Moroccan burgers, something the whole family will love.
Sweat aubergine: Chop and lay out on a paper towel, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and leave 15 minutes. Rinse and pat dry before cooking.
Finely chop aubergine and onion and fry in coconut oil until cooked.
Add 3 heaped Tbsp of the onion and aubergine to mince along with the egg and spices.
Mix into the mince (do not over mix).
Shape into burger patties.
Optional: Brush with soya sauce on both sides (this option is not gluten free)
Add to a hot pan/coals and fry for at least 3 minutes before turning over.
Once cooked to your preference, remove from heat and prepare to plate.

To plate:
