Healthy Beef Burger Patties (with hidden vegetables)
This is a quick and easy mid-week recipe. It's great for meal prep as the patties will freeze or keep in the fridge for a few days.
During the week, I like to keep meals super convenient - but also healthy.
If you follow me on Instagram stories, you notice I can't stop blending vegetables into my food. It just saves me so much time because I don't have to chop anything. Thank goodness.
For this recipe, you just throw almost all the ingredients into the food processor, then combine with the last three items.
Blending veg is a great way to sneak it in. The more veg you sneak in, the further your grocery budget stretches and the more vegetables you eat.
For parents: This is a great recipe for kids.
If your kids don't like seeing green or red in the mix, leave out the herbs (and chillies). You can up the amount of mushrooms or add another small onion, or some zucchini. Blend it up good and proper and they won't know.
You can eat these patties in a burger, if you like. I personally love to have these with potatoes and salad. Seeing as the oven is already on, I figure you may as well put another tray of vegetables into the oven so it's all be ready at the same time. No extra prep needed.
I eat about 3 patties per sitting, but it depends on how hungry you are! Always listen to your hunger.
You can see in the photos I ate mine with sweet potato fries, rocket with chopped tomatoes and balsamic glaze. Easy!
I hope you enjoy this simple mid-week and family-friendly recipe :)
