Summer’s officially here and we all know what that means: burger time!
But that doesn’t mean your limited to not-so-healthy store-bought burgers with too much salt and preservatives on white buns. Long gone are the days when those of us not loving red, processed meats where left with a dry turkey burger or tasteless, mushy veggie patty. Food blogs are filled with mouth-watering veggie burgers that even a meat lover would happily dig into. You can make plenty of exciting twists on the classic beef burger, from omega-3-rich salmon burgers to plant-powered patties made with chickpeas, quinoa, black rice and mushrooms.
And what’s a burger without fries? Still crispy and crunchy, the oven-baked veggie fries in this post contain less unhealthy trans fats and more nutritional value than your average French fries. And that includes better-for-you dipping sauces!
So gear up for grilling season with a summer’s worth of healthy burger and fries recipes.
