Spinach Burgers


These take only about 10-15 minutes to prep and cook. You can easily get creative with these and add other healthy ingredients of your own; corn, mushrooms, brussels sprouts, beets, and beans would all be good options.

6 Ounces Spinach, chopped
3 Large Eggs
1 Onion, chopped
½ Cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
½ Cup Bread Crumbs
2 Large Garlic Cloves, minced
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
½ tsp Salt

How to make them
Sauté the chopped onion and minced garlic cloves in the olive oil in a small pan until slightly caramelized. You can skip this step if you want to make the prep go even faster, but browning the onions and garlic make for an even better flavor.

Chop spinach finely and add to a large mixing bowl. Add salt, red pepper flakes, cheese, eggs, and sautéed onion and garlic. Mix well.

Once thoroughly mixed, add in the bread crumbs. This will help the ingredients thicken up a bit and start to stick together. Don’t worry if the consistency seems too thin or is not clumping together well – when you start to cook the spinach burgers, the egg will help it stay formed and stick together.

Add a small amount of olive oil to a frying pan over medium heat. Portion out patties to your desired size (nutritional information below is calculated for 5 servings) and place them onto the pan.

Cook for 3 minutes on each side, twice, until the outside is crisp and golden. Serve while hot; you can eat them plain or on a hamburger bun or tortilla.

These keep well in the refrigerator for several days.
