Try this juicy, delicious beef and veggie burger perfect for a lunch full of protein and greens, making it a even meal incorporating all food groups!
In this video on clean eating, Arielle Haspel shows you how to make a juicy, delicious beef veggie burger perfect for lunch full of protein and greens! You’re going to be using the cleanest form of beef, which organic and grass-fed. Add your ground beef to a bowl and then you can start adding the veggies.
For the vegetable portion of the veggie burger, you’re going to add in half of a minced red onion, a quarter of a cup of frozen peas, half a cup of frozen kale (feel free to use spinach instead, and even fresh rather than frozen if you’d like!), a quarter of a cup red pepper and finally four garlic cloves. Now start mixing all these veggies in with the ground beef. Add in a quarter of a teaspoon of sea salt and some pepper to your taste!
Once your beef and veggies are all mixed, start rolling up your patties. Try to aim to roll them up into balls about the size of your fist and pat them down with your hands into a patty once you put them on a pan. Once your patties are all patted down, just add in a little grape seed oil to a pan and start adding the burgers. Cook these for about five minutes on each side until each side is nice and brown.
Now you’re ready to make your burger! Make sure your whole meal is as healthy as possible and replace regular white bread with a whole grain bun. Enjoy!

InstructionsIn a bowl, with your hands or a fork, mash up your grass-fed ground beef, your veggies and some sea salt and pepper together. Then, form six balls/patties with your hands. Add a little olive oil or grape seed oil to a large sauté pan on medium to high heat. Add the beef on the pan and flatten it down with a spatula into a patty shape. Cook your ground beef on medium-high heat for at least 5 minutes on each side until they turn nice and brown. Cook more or less depending how rare or well-cooked you want it. Toast some the sprouted grain buns in a toaster or broiler for the burgers and add your patties to the toasted buns. Finally, add in slices of onion, tomato, lettuce, ketchup, and mustard for a classic burger. Serves 4
