Veggie Burgers

Makes: 4 servings

Preheat broiler. Line broiler pan with aluminum foil and lightly coat with oil. In a large bowl, combine and mix well

3/4 cup shredded zucchini
3/4 cup shredded carrots
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 large cloves garlic, minced
15 ounce can fat-free refried black beans
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup egg white
2 tablespoons whole grain bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

If mixture is too moist to shape, refrigerate for 1 hour before shaping.

Shape mixture into 8 patties and place on prepared pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 5 to 6 minutes per side, until lightly browned. These patties are great as a sandwich on a whole grain roll with lettuce, tomato, and mustard flavored mayo.

Try one of these condiments on your veggie burger:

  • pesto
  • tapenade
  • sugar-free pickle relish
  • other types of relishes
  • chipotle chilies in adobe sauce
  • roasted red bell peppers

 

About admin

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet. So dig in to this blog, subscribe to the newsletter for lots of extras not published on the blog and get ready for the Kindle book coming soon.

We want to hear from you :)
