This month we are getting our kids into the kitchen with us. We think if you teach children about cooking from an early age, they will learn to appreciate healthier food options and will enjoy their meals even more.
There is nothing like the quality time of cooking with the kids! Let us know your favourite recipes.
MINI CHICKEN BURGERS
The sun is still shining so we thought we'd start with a summer recipe which is always a favourite with the kids. We use Barkat's as they make
Perfect burger buns!
Serves 12 burgers
½ a 400g can chickpeas, drained
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
500g chicken or turkey mince
1 small sweet potato, grated
olive oil, for brushing
12 Barkat's Bread rolls
2 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
1⁄4 iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 tomatoes, sliced
1⁄4 cucumber, sliced
* Heat the grill to a medium temperature.
* Whizz the chickpeas in a food processor or mash until well broken up. Put into a bowl with the onion, garlic, mince and sweet potato. Mix well and season. (The mixture Can be frozen for up to 1 month).
*Line a baking sheet with foil. Divide the mixture into 12 and shape into mini burgers. Put onto the baking sheet, brush with oil and grill for 10 mins, turning once.
* Bake the rolls and then slice them in half. Griddle or toast under the grill, if you like. Spread the bases with mayonnaise, top with a chicken burger, some shredded lettuce, tomato, cucumber and then add the top of the roll.
Seriously simple right?
