Here’s a great way to get your finicky eaters to eat their greens, with Green Hamburgers. One hamburger has one serving of leafy greens. As a side note, this is a great nutritional meal for those who suffer with Schizophrenia.
Now for our featured recipe: Green Hamburgers, and here is what you will need.
23 fresh spinach leaves
1 pkg. (about 12 oz.) basil, fresh or live basil with roots
Cut the root ball from fresh basil and trim stems along with the spinach and cilantro. Wash the greens.
Place all greens into a food processor with 1/8 to 1/4 cup of water, if necessary. Process greens until finely chopped and looks like a wet paste. Set aside.
Divide hamburger into 4 equal parts, about 1/4 pound per each burger.
Individually prepare each 1/4 pound of meat in a small bowl. Add meat with 2 tablespoons of processed greens, and one tablespoon of bread crumbs. Mix with hands and form a patty.BBQ, broil of pan fry your Green Hamburgers. We used our Nu-wave oven to cook the hamburgers, about 6 minutes each side flipping 2 to 3 times. Meat must be 160 degrees internal temperature to be done.It is not necessary to slice burger in half. We did so to show you how the hamburger looks once cooked.Prepare your Green Hamburger the way you like it. I personally like to use whole wheat bread slices with mayonnaise ,tomato, and a spring lettuce mix.
