Swiss Chard Veggie Burger Recipe

chardpatties

In another attempt to make a veggie burger, I move on to a new base. Usually, a bean or legume foundation makes a hefty burger with enough density and thickness to sustain the expectations we have for a burger. However, experimenting is key in order to find new and improved ways to enjoy a burger, but without all the heft. This veggie burger recipe does just that. Its base is comprised of Swiss chard stalks! I rarely eat Swiss chard (they usually find their way into my green juices), but their stalks are incredibly delicious. Who knew!?

The glow in in the stem:

Swiss Chard: is most popular in Mediterranean cuisine but is found almost everywhere. It is an excellent source of vitamins K, A and C and is a great source of magnesium, potassium, iron and fiber. It contains just 35 calories per cup and provides 300% of the daily value of vitamin K in the same serving. It contains oxalates, however, which can decrease the body’s absorption of calcium and lead to kidney stones. That’s why it is important to rotate your greens and not just focus on one, including Swiss chard, each and every day.

    Hooray for chard! I love it so. I’ve never eaten it in burger form before, though — must try!
