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 bodyâ€™s absorption of calcium and lead to kidney stones. Thatâ€™s why it is important to rotate your greens and not just focus on one, including Swiss chard, each and every day.
