Goat Cheese Burger with courgette/ zucchini fries

If you’re already living the LCHF lifestyle, you will know that courgettes (zucchini) are low in carbs, just 2g. carb per 100g, and they are probably high up on your must buy shopping (or growing) list. They may not pack the nutritional punch of other green vegetables (broccoli, kale etc.) but they do contain significant levels of potassium to control blood pressure and vitamin C to boost your immune system... and yes, they are great to use as fries in this recipe suggestion below.


Enjoy a savoury and tangy burger topped with melty goat cheese. Serve with some crispy zucchini (courgette) fries and a spicy tomato mayo. Just 10g carbs per serving … could be nice for the weekend … or any day! 

Ingredients
Serves Four 
Spicy tomato mayonnaise
1 cup (225ml) mayonnaise
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 pinch cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
Zucchini (Courgette) Fries
1 zucchini (courgette)
11⁄3 cups (175g) almond flour
5½ oz. (150g) grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
2 eggs
3 tbsp olive oil
Burger
1 oz. (30g) butter or olive oil
2 red onions
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1½ lbs (650g) ground beef
salt and pepper
4 oz. (110g)
goat cheese
3 oz. (75g) lettuce
Tip
You can make oven baked fries from a variety of vegetables that are low in carbs - for example green asparagus or green beans. Remember, it’s always fun to play with your vegetables!
