Lamb Burgers with Feta Cheese and Mint

The weather for us comes in waves of one day it is warm, the next day it is cold, the next day it is windy.  This goes on all the time during the spring and this year is more unusual than most.  That being said it really isn't the perfect time to grill when it is really cold, however we decided to forget about the cold and grill out.

This is also the time when farmers markets are starting back up, so don't forget to buy local whenever possible.  The lamb and the feta cheese were from local sources.

You will probably notice first from the picture that there isn't any bun to eat this burger on.  We are trying to go without wheat or any type of gluten, so it is a bun-less burger.

Grilled Lamb Burgers with Feta Cheese and Mint
1 pound ground lamb
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
Fresh ground pepper
Place lamb, feta cheese and mint into a bowl, using hands mix together all ingredients.  Separate meat into four equal sections and pat them into burgers.  Place on a heated grill over high heat and cook for 15 minutes.  Flipping once.  Add a little bit of fresh mint on top for a garnish.

Grilled Cauliflower
Place cut cauliflower into foil and create a pocket that you want to pinch closed on all sides.   Add a small amount of coconut oil to the packet.  Place packet onto grill and cook for 15 minutes.  Serve

Wilted Spinach
1 large package of fresh baby spinach
Heat a skillet over medium high heat.  Add spinach, tossing to cook.  Cook until the spinach just begins to wilt.  Sprinkle with some salt and pepper and serve.

Also served with this a little bit of the cabbage pineapple salad.
