A Perfect Dinner that's gluten-free and dairy-free!

Tonight I am making Salsa Burgers with Roasted Veggies. This is a great dinner for the weekend when you have about an hour to cook. You will need the following:

1 lb. ground beef
1/4 - 1/2 jar of salsa
1 egg
2 slices of gluten-free bread (I use Le Garden Bakery bread)
2 cup of each: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots
2 tbls. olive oil
salt to taste

First combine your ground beef, egg and salsa in a large bowl. Take the bread slices and crumble them into the mixture. Use your hands to combine thoroughly. It should not be really moist but a firm consistancy. Heat your oil in a pan and make patties about the size of your palm and cook through.

Next chop your veggies and place them on a sheet pan lined with foil. Dizzle some oil on them and season with a little salt. Stir to insure that all of the veggies are coated with oil. Place in a preheated oven at 400 for 30 minutes.

Try this delicious and filling meal tonight in your house. It makes about 8-10 burgers and 2 servings of veggies. That's enough for leftovers! So have some fun in the kitchen tonight!
