We love upgrading traditional meals so here is an unusual take on a burger and fries. These were inspired by the upcoming holiday Cinco de Mayo (hence the lime, jicama and cilantro ingredients)! But truly these delicious recipes can be enjoyed any time of the year.

 

For a healthier burger, our classic upgrade will always include well sourced meat whether it be grass fed beef or organic and/or pastured chicken and turkey. If you’re watching your carbs you can skip the bun (or try using a sautéed portobello mushroom or lettuce wrap instead). And don’t forget to top your burger with lots of juicy tomatoes, avocado, organic ketchup, greens, etc.

They are really easy to make. Top with more red onion and some fresh guacamole and/or a dollop of our favorite mayo, Sir Kensington’s (an avocado oil based mayo found in health food stores or online).

Pair with our Jicama Fries Recipe HERE. You can make fries with many types of veggies such as sweet potatoes, butternut squash, turnips, and celeriac. Instead of frying, coat your “fries” in an oil that can take the heat such as avocado oil, which also has great heart health benefits. Spice them up as you like!
