Healthy Chicken Burger with Cheese

Healthy Bean and Spinach Chicken Burgers


2 oz raw chicken breast or tofu
1 cup raw spinach greens 
1/3 cup white beans (any)
1/8 cup white onion 
2 tsp lemon juice
1 small clove garlic
1/4 tsp dried dill 
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp cumin
Dash salt + pepper 


1. Add ingredients to food processor and blend to desired consistency 

2. Scoop blended mixture onto a non-stick skillet, forming into a burger shape 

3. Cook on medium to medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes

4. Flip burger and continue cooking on other side

5. (Optional) Add cheese before removing the burger patty 
(I used a slice of Emmental Swiss Cheese from L'Ancêtre)

6. Plate on a Bun, Bread or Tortilla

To add more flavor, with or without cheese, try 
topping with ketchup, relish, mustard or salsa!

 Makes 1 Serving

Yum! I'm always on the lookout for new veg burger recipes. I'll try the tofu version this week and let you know how it goes

I think this must be the healthiest burger I've ever seen! Love that it has beans and spinach in it!

That cheese totally makes the burger - or at least the pictures!! Swiss cheese is sexy!

delicious idea!

I like that idea! Chicken takes so much doctoring to taste good. I bet the beans give it a fantastic texture!

That's a very creative recipe, actually. Most people I know who would put beans into a burger are vegetarians...and thus unlikely to add in meat.

If one lacks a food processor, could that be mimicked with minced chicken and mashed up beans, all smooshed together?
