2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the patties

  • Cut a small corner from the protein packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.

In a medium bowl, combine the ground meat and seven-spice blend. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix gently until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into four [eight] 1-inch-thick patties. 


Cook the patties

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the patties. 


Beef, lamb, or plant-based meat: Cook, turning once, until browned and cooked to the desired doneness, 2 to 4 minutes per side.


Turkey or chicken: Cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side.


Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, prepare the salad. 


Make the beet salad

  • Cut a small corner from the beet packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Rinse the beets and pat dry with a paper towel; cut the beets in half, then thinly slice. 
  • Core and thinly slice the apple. 
  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.

In a medium bowl, stir together the sherry vinegar and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Add the beets, apple, walnuts, and basil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the beet salad and burger patties to individual plates. Top each burger patty with 1½ teaspoons spicy green harissa and serve the remaining harissa on the side.
