Lean Hamburger with Fries Recipe

By Carolin 

lean hamburger

On the barbecue or in the house, few burgers are as good as the ones you make at home from scratch.
It’s not even hard so why not enjoy a healthy lean hamburger this summer.

This recipe is for one person


1/4 pound ground beef (at least 90% lean meat)
1 teaspoon of water
1 large potato
2 oz turnip-rooted celery

1 teaspoon olive oil
2-3 branches fresh rosemary
2,5 oz squash
1/5 onion
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
2,5 oz whole wheat bread (maybe spelt)
2 lettuce
1 tomato




Put the meat in a bowl with water and some salt and pepper. Turn over gently. Shape the meat to a hamburger that fits the bread.

Wash and peel that potatoes and celery and cut them in fries shapes. Put the fries in a bowl.

Mix  oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. Pour over the fries and turn over gently. Fry in the oven for about 30 min on 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Or until the fires are crisp.

Slice the squash and cut onion rings. On the grill or on in a frying pan, fry the onions, then the squash and at last the meat. Drip some balsamic vinegar over the meat.

Create your hamburger with lettuce, beef, sliced tomato, squash and onion rings. Serve with fries.
