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!
Servings: 6 Burgers
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!
