Description of Fody's Buckwheat Burgers with Spring Vegetable Salad

Buckwheat groats are low FODMAP per lab testing by Monash University in amounts of ¾ cup (135 g) per serving. That is a generous amount of whole grain! Here we have made this chewy, nutritious grain into a burger with sautéed oyster mushrooms. Fody Steak Seasoning and Fody Garlic-Infused Olive Oil add instant flavor. Serve the burgers on a bed of spring green salad, including carrot ribbons, peas, snap peas and radishes along with Fody French Dressing.

  • 1 cup (240 ml) water

  • 1/4 cup (16 g) chopped scallion greens
  • 1 large egg, well beaten
  • ¾ cup (120 g) low FODMAP gluten-free panko, such as Ian’s Original, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Fody Steak Seasoning
  • 2-ounces (55 g) mixed low FODMAP lettuces
  • 1-ounce (30 g) watercress, large stems discarded
  • ¾ cup (7 g) chopped fresh dill
  • ¼ cup (60 g) frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1 ½-ounces (40 g) snap peas

Directions for Fody's Buckwheat Burgers with Spring Vegetable Salad

Stir buckwheat groats and water together in a saucepan with a large pinch of salt, cover and bring to a boil, then adjust heat to a low simmer and cook until water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand covered for 5 minutes. Cool.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons Fody Garlic-Infused Olive Oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat and sauté the mushrooms and scallions for several minutes. The mushrooms will exude moisture; keep cooking until mushrooms are softened and the mixture has dried out a bit. Cool.

Scrape cooled groats and mushroom mixture into a mixing bowl. Add egg, ¼ cup (40 g) of the panko and the Fody Steak Seasoning and stir everything together well. Pour the remaining panko in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Form mixture into 8 flat patties and cover completely with panko.

Wipe out the skillet that you used before and heat remaining 2 tablespoons Fody Garlic-Infused Olive Oil in pan over medium heat. Add patties; do not crowd (you will probably have to do at least 2 batches). Cook for several minutes until nicely browned and crisp on the bottom, then flip over and cook second side until crisp.

Meanwhile, toss together the lettuces, watercress, dill, peas, snap peas, radishes and carrot in a mixing bowl Add enough Fody French Salad Dressing to coat lightly. Divide dressed salad on plates, top with burgers and top them with a bit of goat cheese. Offer with more Fody French Salad Dressing to drizzle on top. Serve immediately.
