Green Burgers

food 002So the picture isn’t hugely appetising I know!  But, these are a great hit of protein with lots of room for spicing it up to your own taste!  Change it up with whatever vegies you have on hand for grating up, and whatever spice combinations you are fond of!

Ingredients (makes 12 burgers):

  • 500g Chicken Mince
  • 1.5 cups of Oats
  • half a bag of Spinach leaves
  • 2 grated carrots
  • 1 cup of frozen onions
  • 1/3 cup of egg whites (2-3 large egg whites)
  • Spice for flavouring: 2 tsps red Thai curry paste and1tbs Coriander leaves


Use your food processor and chop the spinach leaves and onion, grate in the carrot and throw in your spices here too.  In a large bowl, mix together the chicken mince, oats, egg whites, and vegetable mix.  Use a spatula to dollop and shape in frypan/grill which has a light spray of oil on it. Cook through and serve as a snack by itself or with salad on half a bun or in a wrap!!

I am assuming these will be fine in the fridge for a day or two, and freezer-able for month but please use your own common sense here!
