*Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 250 grams chicken livers
  • 250 grams chicken or pork mince
  • 1 brown onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Approx. 4 tbs ghee/coconut oil
  • 1 small red chilli (optional)
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • Pinch of Himalayan pink salt & black pepper
  • 8 Portobello mushrooms (2 per person)
  • 1/3 cup bone broth
  • Lettuce
  • 2 tbs GSK Kimchi Hot Sauce
  • 3 tbs your favourite mayonnaise
  • GSK ginger and turmeric kraut

METHOD

Burger Patties

1.     Place 2 tbs ghee into a warm fry pan and add the onion. Cook for a few minutes before adding the garlic, thyme leaves and chilli if using. Cook until soft.

2.     Pour the onion mix into a food processor and add the mince, livers, salt and pepper.

3.     Pulse until all combined, and there are no large chunks or until the mix will hold together when rolled into a pattie. I like to remove the stalks of thyme at this stage if they don’t get broken up.

4.     Roll into patties roughly the size of your mushrooms.

5.     In a warm fry pan (make sure it isn’t too hot) put 1 tbs ghee or oil to cover the base. Carefully add a few patties at a time cooking for approximately 5 minutes before flipping over to cook the other side. Remove from the pan and repeat until the mixture is all gone. Note, that you don’t want to overcook the burgers as they can go a little dry. So keep an eye on them!

Mushrooms

6.     While the burgers are cooking heat a separate fry pan or pot that has a lid. Add approximately 1 tbs ghee and place the mushrooms in the pan so they are evenly spread and not on top of each other. Brown the top side for approximately 2 minutes before adding the bone broth and putting on the lid.

7.     Let the mushrooms steam in the broth until they are just starting to soften.

8.     Remove the lid and flip the mushrooms over, leave the lid off and continue cooking until all the liquid has gone. Remove from the pan.

Mayonnaise

9.     Place the mayonnaise and GSK Kimchi Hot Sauce in a bowl and mix together well. Sometimes I also like to add a small squeeze of lemon too!

To Serve

10.  Place all the bits and pieces out on the table and let people make their own burgers! You can add any other salad items that you like – and don’t forget to serve with a generous amount of GSK ginger and turmeric Kraut!

Enjoy!

GOOD FOOD, HEALTHY HABITS by Elise Carver

GOOD FOOD, HEALTHY HABITS

It's no secret that I have chronic gastritis, a condition that causes the lining of my stomach to become easily irritated. I've had it for three years now and it affects what I eat on a daily basis.

For me the importance of finding food that I can eat, that won't irritate my stomach but in fact help to heal it, is a big focus!

DID YOU KNOW ROUGHLY 25% - 30% OF THE POPULATION SUFFER FROM SOME SORT OF GUT RELATED PROBLEM.

Whether caused by external factors or the lifestyle choices we make, it is so important to eat and drink what helps us to heal. A combat if you will, against the stressors of life and what we consume.

I've recently come across a few items I wanted to share with you, that have helped to reduce inflammation in my body, improve digestive efficiency and support my gut health.

THE GREEN ST REVIEW

JAMU JAMU - TUMERIC TONIC

I found this drink a great accompaniment to my main meals, mostly lunch and dinner. Kombucha which is often associated with gut health is often too sugary or bubbly for my gut, whereas this blend of turmeric, fresh ginger, lemongrass, Jujube berries, Navel oranges, black pepper, cassia bark and coconut sugar, has a much gentler effect on my stomach.

Not too bubbly as to avoid irritating the stomach lining (but has a little sparkle), a cold glass of Jamu Jamu was probably my favourite item!

LIVING COCONUT - COCONUT KEFFIR MYLK

One of the limitations to having my gut issue, I have to avoid dairy. Even yogurt upsets my stomach!

I was very excited to get my hands on the Coconut Keffir, seeing as I LOVE coconut and need as many healthy Probiotics as I can get, this was great option. I had a small glass every morning before breakfast. It was gentle on my stomach and light to drink. Tasty too!

GINGER & TUMERIC KRAUT

I straight up love Saurkraut! Specially since I can't enjoy the usual condiments due to high acidity or spice, kraut is the perfect option for me. It's even great for adding digestion.

What I loved about the G&T Kraut was how subtle the flavours where. It had just enough Ginger without being spicy. And the two main ingredients (Ginger and Tumeric if you haven't guessed it!) are know for being anti-inflammatory foods, perfect for settling and healing the gut lining. Literally hitting two birds with one stone! I had it with almost every meal!

If you're looking to improve gut health or struggling with some sort of long term digestive complication and you're looking for something gentle, I highly recommend trying out some of these products.

SUSHI BOWL RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

*Anything you like, including 

  • 1/2 Cup Brown Rice
  • Pan Fried Salmon (Caned fish if you're feeling cheap)
  • 1 Poached Egg
  • 1/2 Avocado Cubed
  • !/2 Cucumber Cubed OR Julienne

OPTIONS I LIKE -

  • Blanched Broccolini
  • 1/2 Grated Carrot
  • Handful of Alfalfa

METHOD

* I try to keep my version of a Sushi Bowl relatively High Alkaline, using Saurkraut instead of pickled ginger and avoiding Toms and Capsicums for example. But you can mix it up if you like!

  1. Heat/cook your Rice.
  2. Prep all other items on the list - Avo, Cucumber, Carrot, Broc, Alfalfa.
  3. Assemble your Wasabi Mayo - Mayo/Wasabi mixed in a bowl, to your tasting? I only like a small zip of flavour.
  4. Start to cook the fish and poach the egg while you wait to flip.
  5. The Egg is best runny so catch it before it overcooks!
  6. Once your fish is cooked, assemble on the plate as above, put a few drops of Wasabi Mayo on the plate and...

ENJOY!

The GSK CIY Burger Blog

Burgers often get a bad wrap….

But at Green St we love a good burger!

We believe that you can put a healthy & delicious twist on even the most traditional, and unhealthy, meals.

We just make sure our burgers are filled with fresh, wholesome ingredients & then we add a little fermented kick.

So what do we put in our Green St Burgers?

  • Fresh coriander (leaves only)
  • Avocado (sliced)
  • Red Cabbage (thinly sliced or grated)
  • GSK ginger + turmeric kraut
  • Thinly sliced continental cucumber
  • Tzatziki ( made fresh or store bought)
  • Soft feta (Danish)
  • *(If you are vegan remove & replace with cashew cheese)
  • Sea salt
  • Fried shallots/Garlic flakes (optional)
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Optional – we have garnished with dehydrated pink kimchi

The Hooked on Chook Chicken Burger Ingredients:

  • Grilled Chicken tenderloins
  • Your choice of burger bun (we’ve used a slow fermented multigrain sourdough)
  • Fresh spinach (washed)
  • Fresh coriander (leaves only)
  • Avocado (sliced)
  • GSK Szechuan pepper + turmeric kimchi
  • Kimchi Hot Sauce Mayo
  • *(If you are vegan place mayo with a soy-based vegan mayo)
  • Sea salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Garlic flakes (optional)
  • Optional – we have garnished with dehydrated pink kimchi

Method

Roasted Pumpkin (basic method)

  • Slice your favourite type of pumpkin "we use Jap or Kent" into chunky 1cm pieces (leave skin on if you prefer is very tasty roasted)
  • Lightly season with virgin oil, sea salt and black pepper.
  • Preheat your oven to around 200 degrees ready for pumpkin, place the pumpkin on a roasting tray with baking paper & roast in the oven for around 20-25 minutes or until just tender.
  • Once the pumpkin is tender preheat the grill (on your oven) and place pumpkin under the grill. Allow pumpkin too brown and blister (should take only 1-2 minutes)
  • Allow to cool slightly and season again with virgin oil, sea salt and lemon zest.

Grilled Chicken

  • There are many different ways of cooking chicken for a burger but here is a good one to try... 
  • Grab your chicken tenders, place some cling wrap on your chopping board and put chicken tenders on top evenly spaced and then place more cling wrap over the top. Lightly bash with a meat mallet, flattening the tenders slightly.
  • In a wide flat bowl place some flour (we use @rawearthproduce lupin flour which is gluten free, high protein and fibre) and season with sea salt and white pepper.
  • Lightly dust chicken tenders in flour mixture and set aside.
  • In a thick-based pan preheat some virgin oil (medium heat and oil should just cover the base of the pan) and place chicken tenders into gently cook. This should take around 2 minutes each side.
  • Once the chicken has just cooked, place a knob of butter in the pan and turn off the heat.
  •  As the butter melts spoon it over the chicken allow to cool.
