Olive & Rosemary Burgers

This recipe is for all the burger fans who are looking to "beef" up the flavor of their favorite burgers. Mincing the olives, garlic, and herbs adds a nice Mediterranean flare that comes through the smokiness of the cooked burgers. 

Olive & Rosemary Burgers


  • 1 pound grass fed ground beef
  • 3/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup freshly ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup minced carrot
  • freshly cracked black pepper


  1. Roughly chop the garlic and rosemary then add the pitted olives and mince. Continue to chop until the olives create a slightly chunky paste.
  2. Mince a carrot then combine with the olive paste and ground beef. Add a few turns of black pepper then mix until thoroughly combined. 
  3. Portion into 4 ounce patties then form into burgers. 
  4. Cook to desired doneness and enjoy with preferred condiments.
