Veggie-Beef Burgers

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.
