Korean BBQ Hamburgers with Pickled Radishes and Miso Mayonnaise

Tired of the same old, same old hamburger ?  This Korean version has unique flavor combinations with sour pickled veggies and salty-sweet-spicy Miso Mayonnaise. Try this Panning the Globe Cooking Light 2007 recipe link or Korean BBQ Hamburgers with Pickled Radishes and Miso Mayonnaise (PDF)

I love burgers and have them for lunch whenever there aren’t any leftovers to eat. When I’m in a hurry, I grab a grass-fed beef patty from the freezer, quickly sear with some sliced onions and mushrooms.  I split a GF Potato HB Bun (from the Healthy Monkey) and dress with Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Chipotle Dressing*, Miso Mayo* and Dalla Terra Mediterranean Antipasto.  Pop it in the oven until warm and crispy. Place the patty and sauteed vegetables on the bun, garnish with sliced avocado.  My version of a Triple-O burger.

*For quick plating, I pour the homemade condiments in a squeeze bottle.

Turkey Meat Loaf with Feta & Sun-Dried Tomato

Ever watch that Greek Goddess, Giada De Laurentiis, on the Food Network ?  I picked up “Giada at Home” from the library.  She whipped up this simple, yet tasty family favourite.  You can make it ahead of time, use leftovers for sandwiches or freeze for another day.   I made minor adjustments such as using Minit Tapioca instead of Bread Crumbs, check out the PDF for Turkey Meat Loaf.

UBC Ponderosa Cake

Long ago, a co-worker managed to finagle this recipe from a popular university eatery.  It’s great As Is. But this version is “gluten-freed”,  “healthified” and just as addictive!

Print this UBC Ponderosa Cake recipe and try both versions.    The original recipe calls for 2 Cups of White Sugar which is uber-sweet considering the excessive Chocolate Chips it calls for.  Half the amount in Dark Chocolate works. With 3 Cups really ripe Bananas, Green Stevia and Coconut or Brown Sugar, I can keep my family’s Sweet Tooth satisfied.  I use 1 Tsp Green Stevia plus 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar instead…for this recipe it’s still enough.

You can order Organic Traditions Green Stevia from or  Suede Hills.    It’s expensive but a little goes a long way.  I bought 100 grams from the local health food store for $8.50.  For convenience sake, I still use the SweetLeaf Stevia packets in my tea, but you wonder what they do to make the Stevia WHITE…save that thought for another RANT !
