On Thursday night I went to my very first blogging event. I’m not going to lie – found it quite strange. I don’t mean that in a bad way but the best I can do is liken it to going on a first date with a lot of people. There was a lot of friendly small talk.
In case you didn’t know 27th of August is National Burger day. In celebration of this Asda hosted a MEAT up in the form of a pretty awesome BBQ. I was sceptical about going – I don’t eat meat. But there were all varieties of tricky- to-cater-to dietary-requirement options available.
If you wanted to make a veggie burger like mine (I will be recreating it for myself soon) here is the recipe:
450g halloumi, sliced into 1cm pieces
Red Pepper Houmous
Aubergine, sliced into 1cm pieces – I don’t think my burger had this, and I would swap this out for some slices of Avocado
1. Slice the halloumi and coat in olive oil. Place on the hottest part if the barbeque and cook for 1-2 minutes, turning every 30 seconds, until charred lines appear. Take off the BBQ and keep warm.
2. Slice the aubergine and cook on the barbeque until cooked. (Or prep your avocado, if you are me.
3. Split the buns, then toast, cut-side down, on the barbeque or grill. Spread the bottom half of each bun with the red pepper hummus, add the halloumi, aubergine (or avocado…), lettuce and tomato. Finish with the other half of the bun.
If you happen to not be veggie like me, firstly you should still try the halloumi option, and secondly the bbq range at Asda can be found here if you fancy an online shop…
