Morrocan Burger

I’m doing a bit of a ‘Back to Basics’ month in January, basically, to get rid of December. I’m sure a lot of you understand where I’m coming from. So my meals are all planned for the week and, admittedly, are a little less exciting than normal. But let’s face it – I am going to take the limited ingredients I have to work with and make something much more interesting!

Tonight, I realized I had some pork mince in the fridge that was approaching its use-by date. So instead of the planned chicken breast and spinach (I told you it sounded boring!), I whipped up some Morrocan inspired burgers. Served with some sautéd-in-olive-oil mushrooms and onions.

Sorry about the picture, it was such a sudden meal that I only used my iPod Touch to take the photo!


  • 500 g pork mince, trim pork
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 tomato, diced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree


  1. Dice up your onion and tomato and stick them in a bowl with all the spices, the pork and the tomato puree.
  2. Mix it all up with your hands.
  3. Form into burger shapes and cook. (I have a burger press now so mine were actually ROUND burgers this evening!)
  4. Yeah – that’s about it!
