Foody Friday: Fiery Moroccan Style Burgers


Here are my favourite food links of the week, and a recipe to boot! 

Lauren from Mindful Meals shared her favourite real food hiking snacks – so helpful.

Ashley on My Heart Beets posted a recipe for vegetable korma, and it looks so delicious! All her recipes are paleo as well, if that’s your kinda thing.

Iowa Girl Eats has a how-to for homemade burrito bowls – a great no-fuss dinner idea.

I love the look of these gigantic single-serving (and gluten free) breakfast cookies!

There’s a great article on the Atlantic about the dark side of almonds. I love those things – seems like you can argue against anything these days 😦

I found this adorable blog during the week called the Vegan Stoner. Please go look at the illustrations – I’m not even vegan, but I love this!

M&S have a new ad, and it’s just pure unadulterated food porn – ridiculous! Look at this and swoon:

And here’s my recipe for this week! Simple but delicious, as per 😉


Fiery Moroccan-Style Burgers – they’re so easy to make that it’s kind of embarrassing!



  • 450g Minced Beef (The percentage lean meat is up to you, but if it is very lean the burgers might be a little dry.)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tsp Ras El Hanout Seasoning
  • Half tsp Chili Flakes (Or more depending on how fiery you’d like your burgers to be.)
  • Toppings of your choosing – I went crazy with Mature Cheddar Cheese and a toasted Bagel.


  1. Preheat your oven to around 180 C.
  2. Get your mince into a large enough sized bowl.
  3. Add some salt and pepper (freshly ground is best if you have them) to your taste.
  4. Add one teaspoon of Ras El Hanout and half a teaspoon of chili flakes.
  5. Mush everything together with your fingers so that the spices are evenly dispersed: Don’t be shy!
  6. Roll the mince into balls with your hands – you should have around four or five nicely sized patties. Then flatten each ball into a burger-shape.
  7. Cook your burgers the way you normally cook burgers. (I was lazy, so I placed the whole lot into the oven for around 20 minutes – you’ll know they’re done when the juices run clear.)
  8. Use this time to toast your buns or to make a salad, whatever you’d like. When your burgers are ready, feel free to add some cheese on top and place them under the grill for added deliciousness – I know I did!
  9. Enjoy! 🙂


Hope you’re having a lovely (and delicious) week!
