Easy and Healthy BBQ Recipes

The warmer weather is (hopefully) approaching and with that comes BBQ season! Everybody loves BBQ, it’s a great chance to celebrate the summer!

Below are some delicious ideas for side salads and ways to level up the standard burger on the grill, all using tasty and nutritious products from The Groovy Food Company.

BBQ Rainbow Beef Salad


2 x 250g sirloin steaks, fat trimmed⁠

thumb-sized piece ginger, grated⁠

1 garlic clove, grated⁠

2 limes, juiced⁠

2 tbsp The Groovy Food Company Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Cooking Spray ⁠

1 tbsp low-salt soy sauce⁠

3 red bird’s eye chillies, finely chopped⁠

4 small Gem lettuces⁠

12 radishes, thinly sliced⁠

3 carrots, peeled and sliced⁠

½ cucumber, cut into ribbons using a peeler⁠

3 spring onions, sliced⁠

1 large avocado, sliced or diced ⁠

½ tbsp mixed sesame seeds⁠


1. Let the steak rest for 1 hour out of the fridge before cooking. Before you start, make the salad dressing by mixing together the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, lime juice, olive oil spray and chopped chillies in a bowl.⁠

2. Put the steaks on the barbecue and cook for 3 mins on each side (this should give you medium rare steaks, so you can adjust cooking time to suit your preferences). You can also pan fry your steaks if you’re not having a BBQ! Once cooked, cover and rest for 5 mins.⁠

3. Place the vegetables and avocado on a sharing plate or in a large bowl, slice the steaks and lay on top of the salad. Drizzle the dressing and any resting juices over the salad and garnish with the sesame seeds and any leftover chillies.⁠

Hot Agave Burger 


450g minced beef (we use 7% fat)⁠

1 large egg⁠

25g finely diced onion⁠

25g dried breadcrumbs⁠

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce⁠

1 or 2 finely chopped garlic cloves⁠

1/2 tsp salt⁠

1/4 tsp pepper⁠

4 burger buns (we like the brioche ones!)⁠

4 washed lettuce leaves⁠

1 ripe tomato, thinly sliced⁠

4 slices red onion⁠

⁠The Groovy Food Company Hot Agave Nectar ⁠

Ketchup ⁠

Mayo ⁠


1. Mix the beef, egg, breadcrumbs, diced onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and garlic in a bowl. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into a patty. ⁠

2. Lay the patties on the BBQ grill or gas grill and cook for around 8 mins, turning halfway through until browned on both sides.⁠

3. Slice the burger buns and place face down on the grill for 30 seconds to lightly toast. Add your choice of condiments, the lettuce, tomato and burger patty and onion onto the bun, and finish off with a drizzle of delicious Hot Agave before putting the top bun on. ⁠

4. Tuck in and enjoy!⁠
