I love burgers but I feel that they are quite heavy and not that healthy. But they are perfect to eat in a beautiful summer day. When my kids and my husband are starving and asking for a burger, I had to think about the best way to make one with healthy ingredients and yet that tastes super good. The crucial high carb element in a burger is the bread and the fries plus the sauces. I replaced the bread with a sriracha buns for the adults because it is quite spicy for young kids and whole wheat buns for my kids. I grilled the beef patty in my gas barbecue and grilled the onion with mushroom as well in the same time with the patties. For the lettuce, i used instead some spinach leaves and a chopped Brussels sprouts mixed with a little bit of mayo, so that was my crunchy and saucy ingredient in the recipe no sauce anymore. This little salad gives my burger the crunchiness and the moistness it needs. The rest of the ingredients were just tomato, light cheese, pickles and the grilled onion and mushrooms.
The best part of my recipe is that I didn’t make any fries. I grilled green beans with a little bit of savory seasoning and olive oil and placed them in my air fryer for 20 minutes. That was super crunchy and savory. It can be toasted in the oven if you don’t have an air fryer.
