GreenBee Burger


Here’s an original greenbeekitchen recipe! Burgers are one of my favourite meals, especially during BBQ season. I’ve been working on incorporating green ingredients into this recipe to create a delicious, healthy green burger!

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup dried green lentils
1/2 cup shelled and finely chopped pistachios
1 cup grated zucchini, patted dry
2 cups spinach, chopped
1 yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 portabella mushroom, diced
1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
2 tbsp chia seeds
Salt and pepper

In a medium-sized saucepan, bring 1/2 cup lentils and 1 cup of salted water to a boil. Turn heat to medium low and cook uncovered for 20- 30 minutes until lentils are tender. Remove from heat and drain excess liquid.

In a wide bottomed pan, heat oil and sauté onion until translucent. Add garlic, zucchini, mushroom, spinach, dill, salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

In a food processor, combine lentils and pistachios with cooked vegetables. Pulse until coarsely combined. Stir in 1/2 cup breadcrumbs and 2 tbsp chia seeds.

Form into 6 patties and pan fry until browned on both sides. While patties fry, assemble your favourite burger condiments. Build your burger and enjoy!

3/4 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
