We love Asian food in our house and enjoy incorporating its flavors into our cooking. The first time I created this recipe, it was late, and I was preparing lunches for the next day. They were so good that both my husband and I ended up eating a burger at 10:30 at night!

Why eat the Asian Burger?

Snap peas and bok choy are two vegetables many people wouldn’t eat solo…But mixed into this burger, they provide a variety of vitamins and minerals, including iron and folate. Both vegetables also add fiber to assist with digestive health. Studies have shown that many people do not consume enough fiber, so eating this burger can help you get more of this important nutrient. Coconut aminos is a great substitute for soy sauce, which is higher in sodium and off limits for people with soy and/or gluten allergies or sensitivities.

  • 1 tablespoon cooking fat
  • 1 bunch bok choy
  • 1 bag frozen or fresh snap peas
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt divided
  • 3 teaspoons coconut aminos
  • 1 teapsoon hot sauce optional
  • 1 lb ground meat

  • Heat a skillet on medium heat with 1 tablespoon cooking fat. Rough chop bok choy, and sauté with the snap peas and ½ teaspoon salt until soft, about 10 minutes.

  • Optional: Serve with rice and leftover veggies.

    I have visited China for a couple of months and Bok choy is a very common vegetable to the place. The people there have learned to incorporate this vegetable in almost all their dishes possible – soup, stir-fry with all other greens and even made kimchi, a side dish which I really miss a lot. I haven’t tried this recipe yet but I have a feeling that this is going to be a good one. I can’t wait!!
