Quick nut burgers

January 5, 2012

Arlo, Lilah, Sarah and I did our own school trip to Exeter to look at paintings – portraits mainly and today we especially looked at Pompeo Batoni’s painting of Richard Milles. Batoni was famous in his lifetime, but a couple of decades after his death he had fallen into obscurity although he is enjoying a bit of a renaissance now. He painted fantastic, over the top portraits with lace, velvet, fur and silks depicted convincingly in jewel like colours. We also liked Laura Knight’s “The Beach” and  Stanhope Forbes‘ A Fishmarket on a Cornish Beach – so realistic you can almost feel the everyday chill and smell the fish – which brings me neatly to food. More nut burgers in fact, but not as well photographed as before – no artistic positioning of the chillies or spices. Really quick though – again assuming ready cooked potatoes.

Mash your cooked potatoes –  add a slice of wholemeal breadcrumbs (bread blitzed in a blender rather than shop bought crumbs), half a cupful of finely ground nuts, half a cup full of finely chopped spring onions(scallions) a generous teaspoon of tomato puree and some salt. Mix well, form into burger shapes – or sausage shapes to ring the changes – and fry. Eat in a bun with salad and ketchup.
