Tonight, I’m serving hamburgers that have an added healthy twist–quickly pureed beans and spinach. If you use frozen spinach in this recipe, thaw it, then squeeze out the liquid before adding to the meat mixture. I’m serving the hamburgers on a toasted multi-seed roll, but they are delicious served alone or with a flavorful sauce such as tomato or mango chutney, which is available at many grocery stores or just simply make your own.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup spinach, finely chopped
1/2 to 3/4 cup garbanzo beans, cooked and mashed
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 buns or rolls
- Combine beef, spinach, gabanzo beans, onion, salt and pepper.
- Form into hamburge patties
- Cook patties for 10 minutes (medium-well) in oven pre-heated to 350 degrees or on grill.
