Easy Dinner Idea: Broccoli Burgers

In the northeast United States, the weather kept millions of people in their homes. With freezing rain and ice wreaking havoc all around, even small tasks like going to the grocery store were difficult to do. That is part off the reason why I made this simple, but delicious dinner.

A few weeks back, one of my cousins (Shoutout to Alexa), posted a picture of a Broccoli Cheddar Burger that looked amazing. While trying to scour her Facebook account to find the recipe didn’t work out the way I hoped, I decided to just go for it and make my own version. With that said, here is my easy Broccoli Burger recipe for all of you to enjoy.

Broccoli Burgers

  • 3 cups Broccoli
  • 1/8 cup Yellow Pepper, diced
  • 1/8 cup Spinach
  • 1/4 cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Instructions:

Take your broccoli and spinach and use whatever gadget you possess to chop it finely. I used my Magic Bullet. Combine broccoli and spinach with yellow pepper, bread crumbs, and cheese. Mix well and form small burger patties about the size of the palm of your hand.

In a medium sized pan, apply light layer of olive oil and gently place patties. The patties will be very soft and will likely fall apart if not careful. Cook on medium for about 4-6 minutes on each side. I cooked mine until lightly browned.

After plating Broccoli Burgers, feel free to sprinkle more Parmesan Cheese on top for added flavor.

These can be eaten on their own, or if you are looking for a filling, but healthy, meal, cook chicken breast with flour and enjoy the taste combination.

P.S. You may have noticed I tagged “Whole 30” in this post. While I understand that with the Whole 30 diet that you can’t have bread crumbs or cheese, this recipe is still healthy enough to where you can allow yourself a minor cheat-meal, and still not lose out of the main goal of the program.
