Healthy(er) Burgers

“The sandwich-segment boom is based on health-conscious people perceiving sandwiches as better for them than burgers or fried chicken." - Dominick Voso


This week I made this delicious 'healthier' version of a burger, so thought will share it with you all. For the first time it would actually be in a Recipe format :) 


Ingredients:
1/2 Red Onion
1 Tomato
2 Banana Peppers
Ready-to-cook Vegetable Patties
1 cup of Spinach leaves
Few Basil Leaves
Small cup of Fat-Free Mozzarella Cheese
Sandwich Thins [Oroweat]
Hummus

  1. Chop Onions, Tomato and Banana Peppers
  2. Also shred the basil leaves thin
  3. Slice the Sandwich Thins
  4. Heat the Patties on [Medium High] on a Skillet for about 8-10 minutes. Turning them continuously. 
  5. Throw in some onions to sauté on heat along with the Patties 
  6. Once the Patties are heated and dark brown, sprinkle some mozzarella and shredded basil leaves on top. Do not turn them again. Let the cheese melt on the warm Patties
  7. Toast the Sandwich Thins
  8. Spread a generous layer of Hummus over the Toasted Sandwich Thins
  9. Add Spinach, Patty, Tomato, Onions, and Banana Peppers

Voilà! Now take a bite! :)

    btw i tried out the healthy pasta recipe of urs, with my individual twist and got generous compliments from the husband, he even went to on to say that this is the best pasta ever and it was even better than the one we had at one of the high end restaurants that we had dined at some time back...i was glad to huge extent!!!!

  9. :) Tanvi, I love the sandwich thins that are out on the market today...only 100 calories and whole wheat to boot!!! I like to layer them with a thin layer of pesto and some thin avocado and red onion slices (+ turkey bologna- I know you're vegetarian, but for us non-vegetarians there are a few more options out here)...makes for a nutritious and healthy meal!!

  20. This sounds fantastic!!! I'll have to remember that for next time. I saw one episode of Biggest Loser where they used portobello mushrooms! Thought that was pretty cool :)

  22. looks yum. Which brand of patties do you use? My fav is Morning Star. The Spicy Black Bean ones are to die for!!

  23. Sounds yummy. Speaking of burgers, have you ever tried Oprah's recipe for Turkey Burgers, it's all over the place online, and they are to die for. May not be as healthy as this version, but definitely delicious.
