The Vital Veggieburger; or the vegetableburger!
Do you achieve 300 – 500 grams of vegetables each day? Or are you somebody that eats less than 200 grams of vegetables each day?
Or do you perhaps have chilldren that aren’t to keen on eating vegetables? Then this is a perfect recipe for you to add extra vegetables to a meal! It’s also a perfect snack for anytime or as extra at lunch.
It’s also a perfect replacement for a piece of meat at least once a week!
(for the bodybuilders with us… it’s perticulary good as a snack 😉 )
This recipe was originally a red beets burger, I have made two variations;
The Parsnip and Red beats Burger & The Popeye Burger
Choose 250 grams of grated Parsnip, and 250 grams of grated red beets
OR 150 grams of Spinach with sundried tomatoes.
Biological base ingredients for 4 burgers:
- 100-125 grams of oatmeal
- 1 small onion
- 50-100 grams of feta- or goat’s cheese (goat’s cheese is my favorite outoff the two)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 or 2 eggs (try to see how the mixture looks when everything has been stirred in, if it’s to dry, add another egg)
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- Freshly ground pepper and salt
This is how you make the burgers
Peel the beet/parsnip and grate them in a kitchen machine together with the onion and garlic (this is also possible by hand, slice the onion and garlic very small). Add the grated vegetables in a mixing bowl. Add the oatmeal, the egg and the olive oil and mix everything together. Then add the feta/goat’s cheese. And then season it to taste with salt and pepper.
The spinach can be mixed accordingly with the sundried tomatoes for the other varity of this recipe (TIP: add a teaspoon of biological pesto, for extra taste ;-)!) Squash the spinach well or slice thin.
For the next bit I tend to use throwaway gloves 😉
Knead everything together with your hands untill mixed properly. Put everything aside for half an hour so the oatmeal can soak in all the moisture. If the mixture is still to loose, add some extra oatmeal. This is important so that all ingredienst stick together. Put a grillpan on the heat. Grill the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side and flip halfway there. If you do not have a grillpan use a normal frying pan and some olive oil until golden on each side.
You can serve the burger with some sweet potatoe fries and a fresh salad to taste, or just like a piece of meat with a meal, or you can eat it on a bun like a real burger. Do try to pick one of the more healthy bread varieties and don’t pick a white bun or regular hamburger bun! (don’t forget that there’s allready oatmeal in the burger itself 😉 )
