This easy, gluten-freepaleodairy-free Glazed Green Bean recipe and Beans, Greens & Balsamic BurgerFit recipe is great for using all those green beans that may be coming in from your summer garden!

You can eat the glazed green beans as a side dish or throw them on top of a bed of greens like I did. I love adding cooked veggies to my salads to keep them interesting to my tastebuds. I also had a little trail mix made out of mixed seeds, nuts, and dried fruit that I added on top. Everything blended together deliciously!

If your kids won’t eat green beans or a salad (if they do, share your tips with us!), trying making the green bean BurgerFit burger! It’s a ground meat burger blended with cooked green beans and collard greens to get a serving of veggies into your kid’s meal whether they know it or not! Since they taste like a regular burger, you can serve it like you would a traditional burger with a bun and cheese, or serve it on the side with some of the green beans!

Kids (and picky adults) won’t even know they are eating vegetables and they will be loving it! Serving sprouts (which I love adding to this recipe!) can also be a win for getting a kid to eat vegetables. A sprout is a lot less intimidating to try than a whole vegetable. Sprouts are cute and fun and they make kids curious. Plus, sprouts have such a concentrated amount of nutrients that you don’t have to worry about your kids not getting their vitamins and minerals – a small portion of sprouts will have them covered!

A few substitution ideas:

  • You can easily replace the honey with maple syrup.
  • If you have fresh dill, use it instead of the dried dill! But use two to three times more if using fresh.
  • You can use any of your favorite oils, like coconut oil, avocado oil, rendered lard, tallow, etc.

This burger doesn’t have to be made with ground beef, it can easily be substituted with your favorite type of ground meat like ground chicken, pork, and turkey.

When cooking the green beans and greens for the BurgerFit burgers, I used coconut oil but you could use any cooking fat that you prefer to cook with: olive oil, avocado oil, lard, tallow, etc.

Even though I used the Stone Ground Koops’ Mustard in this recipe, you can experiment with any of the Koops’ Mustards! Some other ones that I think would be great in this recipe are:

I used the Broccoli and Clover Sprouts on top of this burger but any of them would b delicious! Some other SunGarden sprouts options that I think would be great on this burger are:

My favorite way to eat this burger is over a bed of greens with sprouts and mustard on top. I usually don’t even use a salad dressing and use the mustard as if it were one. If I decide I want a little dressing, I’ll usually whip up one of my favorite ones. My boys (my husband and son) always love making a traditional burger with a bun, pickles, and cheese. Do whatever works for your family! A few of my favorite BurgerFit burger recipes to eat with this gluten-free Glazed Green Beans Recipe are:

Using green beans in these two recipes helps get through all those summer beans growing without you getting sick of eating them over and over again! – Alane

Green Beans, Collard Greens & Balsamic Vinegar Burger

When people think of balsamic vinegar, they often think of putting it on mozzarella or salads. But I enjoy balsamic vinegar so much, I had to build a BurgerFit recipe with it. Once you try it, you won’t second guess putting it in a burger again!

  • Heat a skillet on medium heat with 1 tablespoon cooking fat. Remove stems and rough chop the collard greens. Sauté the greens and green beans with ½ teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Once the greens and green beans are cooked, add the greens, green beans, and garlic to the food processor (or finely chop). Let the mixture cool completely. 
  • In a large bowl, add the ground meat, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar. Gradually incorporate vegetable mixture into the ground meat. Add as much as you can while still being able to form your burgers as normal.
    *If you end up adding too much vegetable mixture, don’t worry! Just form your burgers and cook in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Cook burgers on medium heat on the stove for 3-5 minutes each side or to your preference. Cooking times can vary.
  • Optional: Serve with a side of green beans over collard greens and top with SunGarden Sprouts!

    I’m going to say it — this glazed green beans is the BEST, I mean seriously the best side for grilled chicken or steak. The flavor works so well and it doesn’t take much longer or much more effort to make! So easy, so healthy and so delicious!!
