Spinach burger

Spinach burger would make even Popeye happy, because it’s packed with spinach. Lots of power! This time I wanted to make a vegetarian burger that had extra vegetables as a bonus – and which, moreover, would not be full of legumes. Nothing wrong with that, but sometimes you want something different, right? So I made a delicious spinach burger and mixed it with grated cheese, egg and breadcrumbs and some seasoning for a delicious burger.

The funny thing is that the spinach makes the burgers really nice and green. And the cheese and egg keep them together. This time I will process the spinach raw in the burgers. But chop it fairly well before I mix it with the other ingredients.

Make sure the spinach burger does not get too wet. You can prevent this by not adding all the eggs at once. Just see how much you need to make it a coherent whole.

I gently fry the spinach burgers in a pan for about 5 minutes per side or until they are golden brown and done.

And then it is important to build up your citizen properly. I usually start with a layer of sauce. The lettuce comes on top. Then the burger and then I finish with the toppings and of course extra sauce.
