I feel like God bringing different cultures together to create this burger. Look at me, I am your God now. It’s like if Italy fell in love with Japan and they somehow had an American baby. Totally doesn’t make sense but I’m sticking with it.
This Miso Burger is loaded with juicy chicken wrapped in prosciutto that is then slathered in a maple syrup miso sauce, topped with crunchy pickled cucumber and carrot and finished with a spring onion chutney. Sounds like a lot of work but it is so simple to make, in fact insanely simple.
It’s also somewhat healthy (excepts for the sodium content but we will both act like we know nothing about that) for that one over the top friend who judges you for eating a cookie whilst they only put #cleaneating foods into their body and are the literal definition of #fitspo, excepts for when they drop MDMA on the weekend.
- 3 spring onion stalks
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 2 inch piece of ginger
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- salt to taste
- 1 carrot, sliced with peeler
- 1 cucumber, sliced with peeler
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 chicken breast
- 6 slices prosciutto
- 2 tbsp miso paste
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 buns
- spinach/rocket mix
- sliced tomatoes
Roughly chop spring onions, garlic, and ginger. Place into a food processor along with the olive oil, sesame oil, and salt. Process until chunky, place into the fridge until ready to use.
Mix water, vinegar, salt, and sugar together then heat in a saucepan till it comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and add in the cucumber and carrot. Let sit for 20 minutes.
Wrap the chicken in prosciutto then brown both sides in a pan until slightly crispy.
Mix miso paste, soy, and maple syrup until well incorporated. Use a pastry brush and generously brush on both sides of the chicken. Place into a 200°c preheated oven and cook for 20 minutes.
Toast your buns, then place down spinach/rocket, tomatoes slices, chicken, pickled veg and spread the chutney over the top layer of the bun.
