When I have a stressful day, the first place I go, is the kitchen. I usually pour myself a glass of red wine and get creative; and all of my stress magically melts away. This past Wednesday, was one of those creative times. I made orange cilantro sliders with garlic mash, coconut broccoli slaw and Asian pear. A wonderful blend of citrusy, tropical flavors.
Orange Cilantro Sliders with Garlic Mash
- Organic ground beef
- 1/4 bunch of fresh cilantro
- Zest of 1 orange, juice of 1/2 of 1 orange
- 1/4 diced white onion
- Sea salt/pepp
- Roasted whole garlic cloves
The first thing I did was start the whole garlic cloves roasting in the oven. Once they were finished, I mashed the roasted garlic together for a burger topper. Mix all other ingredients together and form into slider size patties. Place in pan over medium heat and cook until done to your liking.
Coconut Broccoli Slaw
- 1 bag organic broccoli slaw (I use TJs)
- 1 TBSP Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil
- Organic unsweetened coconut flakes
Melt oil in a saute pan and add bag of broccoli slaw. Let it cook over medium heat, continuing to stir until it cooks down, and sprinkle with coconut. Gently toss, and pair with burgers and a crisp sliced Asian pear.This dinner recipe can be seen on the Food Renegade’s Fight Back Friday for March 22nd!
