Who Knew You Could Get One of Your Five-a-Day in a Burger?

I have had this thing going on with traditional foods and it continues. This terrible week of report writing really called for some good old fashioned comfort food, which might for some seem a bit unconventional. Lindström's Beef and Beetroot Patties is a delicious Finnish dish that is definately worth trying. It is debatable whether the name originates from a Mrs. Lindström making these patties is Stockholm in the 1800's or a Finnish lieutenant Henrik Lindström continuosly requesting these in restaurants. The story doesn't tell... Anyhow the Boyfriend really liked these, which is always a plus.


50g breadcrumbs
1 finely chopped onion
150g finely chopped beetroot in vinegar
1 tbsp finely chopped capers
500g lean beef mince
1 beaten egg
black pepper

The mixture can either been made in a food processor or by hand. If making it by hand mix the breadcrumbs with the beaten egg, beetroot, capers, onion, mince, salt and black pepper. Keep on mixing, until the mixture is smooth. With your hands, form into patties. Fry the patties on the frying pan on both sides and then move them in the oven to keep them warm.

Serve with fried onions, capers and boiled potatoes.

And yes, these juicy burgers contains one of your five-a-day!
