Low GI Hamburgers with Herb Mayo and Salad
  1. Start by prepping your burger patties.
  2. Give each a light drizzle of olive oil and a liberal seasoning with salt and pepper.
  3. If your patties were made to lage, simply reshape them into the desired size. Set aside to gather flavour.
  4. In a blender or food processor, blitz the fresh herbs and the Willow Creek Garlic olive oil till finely chopped.
  5. Mix the pesto into 200ml of the mayonnaise with 5ml lemon juice, salt and pepper. Refrigerate till needed.
  6. Get a frying pan with the canola oil smoking hot.
  7. Cook the patties, without disturbing them too much, for about 3 min on each side, or until browned.
  8. Adding a knob of butter at the end will boost the flavours in the meat.
  9. Remove from the pan and set in a hot oven for a few minutes if you like them more well done.
  10. Cut or grate the red cabbage thinly.
  11. Mix the yogurt and the rest of the mayonnaise and lemon juice into the cabbage.
  12. Season as preferred and serve on the side with other summer vegetables, or in the burger for less fuss and more fun.
  13. Always toast a burger bun, especially if it goes on a picnic.
  14. Construct the burgers with generous spoons of herbed garlic mayo and wrap in picnic paper.
  15. Refrigerate until you pack your hamper.
