Watercress And Beef Burgers

Serves 4

Forget McDonalds or any other fast food emporium, these burgers are a world away from highly processed food.

Putting the cheese in the middle of the burger gives it added succulence and the couscous makes it really moist. Lean minced beef is a good source of protein, iron, other minerals and B vitamins.

Even the most veg resistant child will munch on these with relish, hardly aware of the watercress.

75g/ 2oz couscous
450g/1 lb very lean minced beef
1 large handful watercress, all woody stems removed
4 tablespoons grated Emmental cheese
6 tablespoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper

Put the couscous into a bowl and cover with 125ml/4 fl oz warm water.

Stir and set aside for at least 30 minutes, until all the liquid has been absorbed.

Tip in the beef, and watercress and mix thoroughly – hands are really best. Douse with lots of black pepper.

Divide the mixture into eight small, flattened patties.

Sprinkle the cheese on four of them. Top with the other four patties, pressing them together until they're firm.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the burgers on each side until cooked right through – 10-15 mins.

Do not add salt as there is enough in the cheese.
