Low Chemical / Failsafe


  1. If moderate salicylates and amines are tolerated you can use Tzatziki dip instead of chickpea.
  2. If moderate salicylates only are tolerated include grated carrot and peeled cucumber in  the hamburger.
  3. If eggs are tolerated, add a fried egg to the hamburger.
  4. If amines are tolerated use pork mince.
  5. Serve with no-tomato sauce, pear sauce or pear and vegetable sauce.
