carrot potato burger

Carrot potato burger with young spinach leaves. Sounds and looks so healthy that I'm having trouble believing that I've actually made it.


•500 g young carrots   •250 g young potatoes   •1 tsp fresh ginger   •2 tsp curry powder   •1 tsp chili powder   •1 tsp crushed coriander seeds   •1 tsp dried rosemary   •1/2 large cucumber   •1/2 bunch dill   •1/3 cup Greek yoghurt   •2 garlic cloves   •1 tsp white wine vinegar   •salt   •black pepper   •young spinach   •2 pumpkin rolls
Peel the carrots or just wash them carefully. Cut off the top and bottom.
Wash potatoes carefully and cut in quarters.
Cook the vegetables until tender.
Meanwhile, grate the cucumber.
Chop some dill.
Put together grated cucumber, dill, yoghurt, minced garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper.
Combine. Refrigerate before serving.
Place vegetables in a bowl. Dispose of potato skins - they will go off easily at this point.
Mash the vegetables.
Grate some ginger.
Season with curry, chili, coriander and rosemary.
Combine. Form two burger patties.
Pan fry your burgers for 2-3 minutes each side.
Cut rolls in half.
Top with tzatziki.
And spinach leaves.

Turns out I don't have to die to go to heaven. I can just make this sandwich. Whew, what a relief.

Molly, first - thank you :) And as for your question, I boiled my potatoes and carrots. I did consider roasting them, but wasn't sure how that would turn out. Boiling is the safest method. Still, I suppose other methods should actually work just fine for the patties. Let me know how it goes!

I love the setup of your blog! (just wanted to get that out there first). I'm wondering, how do you cook the potatoes and carrots? Roast? Boil? Broil? Steam? Is any method good for the texture of the potatoes and carrots or is there on that makes them just right for patty-formation?
