Mediterranean Veggie Burger with Tuscan White Beans

Ingredients:

  • Juice of 1/4 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 small red onion finely chopped
  • Low Sodium Veggie Broth (as needed)
  • 8 oz. kale
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 can brown lentils with the liquid
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • Toppings:

  • Better Bean Company Tuscan White Beans
  • Mango Salsa
  • Ezekiel brand burger buns
  • Baby spring mix
  • 1/2 small red onion sliced

Instructions:

  1. Add lemon juice, red onion, and garlic into a nonstick pan and sauté until soft
  2. Add chopped kale into pan with garlic and onion and cook down for about 10-15 minutes until tender *pouring in splashes of veggie broth as needed to help the cooking process go easily (softens the tough kale and acts as another nonstick precaution aside from the pan itself)* (:
  3. Transfer sautéed kale to a large bowl and add spices as well as the other ingredients
  4. Mix with large spoon and/or massage with hands and form patties
  5. This makes about 5 medium size burgers
  6. Feel free to cook the burgers right in the same pan you cooked the kale in!
  7. Once the burgers are cooked through it is time to assemble!
  8. Toast your Ezekiel (or other healthy) buns, spread on some Better Bean Co. Tuscan White Beans, toss on some sliced red onion or grilled white onion, add a spoonful of Mango Salsa, a patty, some greens of your choice, and you are all set!
  9. It is an awesome addition to serve this dish with sweet potato fries!

I am a 16 year old from Florida and I love to cook! Eating vegan is a passion of mine and I am always on the hunt for new, delicious, and easy recipes! I am also a runner, so I try to make sure that I always fuel my body with healthy foods for optimum performance in training and races. When I found the Better Bean Co. products in my grocery store I was super excited because at first glance I was amazed at the ingredients, but then I tasted the beans. You can totally tell that they use incredibly fresh foods! These little boxes of delight are the PERFECT thing to add to any dish and there are so many flavors! They are definitely a must-try! (;
