These burgers are delicious, perfect for kids because they don’t dry out and that’s easy and pleasant to eat. They have a slight sweetness, given by the apple, which both children and adults like. The mashed yuca with potatoes is a classic of my life and the garnish of green beans with carrots goes very well. It feels like home cooking, made with love. The idea is to make a single menu for the whole family and adapt it according to the age of your baby / child.
- 500 g beef burger
- 1 apple delicacy or whatever they have, preferably sweet
- A pinch of salt and pepper (if the baby is older than one year)
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of soy sauce, optional (if the baby is over one year old. Always look for a good quality one. I recommend reading the labels and choosing the one that does not have many ingredients or names that you do not recognize)
Mashed cassava with potatoes:
- 3 cups of potato
- 3 cups of cassava
- 3 cups of water
- Salt (if the baby is older than one year)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter (butter for babies over 1 year old)
- 3 cups green beans (cleaned and diced)
- 3 cups carrots (cleaned and diced)
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil (for dressing)
- A pinch of salt (if he drinks is older than one year)
Wash, peel and grate the apple. Place it in a bowl along with the ground meat, salt and pepper, and also the olive oil. Incorporate the mixture well and form the hamburgers. These are cooked in a nonstick skillet greased with vegetable oil, over medium high heat for approximately 5 minutes. Then we turn it over and add a splash of water to remove the juices from the pan and the soy sauce (optional), cover and lower the heat to medium, cook for 5 to 7 minutes more approximately. On the other hand, we wash, peel and cut the potato and cassava into small pieces. We place them in a pot with the water and cook over medium high heat covered for approximately 20 to 25 minutes. We crush them to make the puree and add the olive oil or butter and salt (butter and salt if the baby is older than one year) off the heat. For the garnish, cook the vegetables for approximately 8 minutes, steamed or in boiling salted water, strain and add a pinch of salt (if they are steamed) and olive oil.
Note: For the puree, if the baby is older than one year, they can reduce half a cup of water at the beginning of cooking and add half a cup of milk at the end.
