Three Takes On The Burger

Grilling burgers on a barbeque is an American tradition that dates back to cattle drivers in the late 1800s. This time-honored tradition not only results in a tasty meal, but for many, it also serves as a vibrant social activity in and of itself.

Some health-seekers may have the idea that they must “give up” their favorite foods in order to stay healthy – not true! We’re here to present you with three different takes on the classic burger that will leave you feeling both satiated and satisfied.

Your choices are:

  1. Healthy Homemade Beef Burger
  2. Carnivore-Worthy Veggie Burger
  3. Simple Vegan Black Bean Burger

Healthy Homemade Beef Burger

The inventor of this recipe was tired of store-bought burgers that oozed who-knows-what when he cooked them. Thus, he was inspired to create his own burger from scratch. However, it had to be quick to prepare. We’d say his prep time of five minutes fits that bill and hopefully yours, too.

Make this recipe even healthier by incorporating Simple Truth Organic Ground Beef or Natural Ground Beef as your base, and add a ST Large Brown Egg in the mixing bowl. Including high-quality ingredients in your burgers provides significantly more nutrients per calorie, so you’ll typically finish it feeling more satisfied.

One unique suggestion in this recipe is to substitute barbeque sauce for ketchup – you just might like it!

Carnivore-Worthy Veggie Burger

This burger packs a lot of taste despite its lack of meat, and it’s topped off with some melted cheesy goodness. The creator of this recipe is a self-proclaimed carnivore who often has vegetarian guests over to eat and enjoys exploring different flavors. His recipe “meats” his high-standards and we hope it meets yours too.

Try using Simple Truth Organic Chickpeas and ST Organic Large Brown Eggs to give your burgers great taste and texture. Also, feel free to experiment using different vegetables and spices to cater to your own tastes or those of your guests.

This recipe is a bit more involved, so if you don’t have the time to cook these up, try out our Simple Truth Meatless Patties. These have already been a big hit with fans of Simple Truth, and we hope you’ll enjoy them too!

Simple Vegan Black Bean Burger

This flavorful burger uses hearty black beans and flaky oats as its base. And you can see it includes no meat or dairy, yet uses only six essential ingredients:

  1. Black beans
  2. Instant oats
  3. Garlic powder
  4. Onion powder
  5. Ketchup
  6. Mustard

The man who created this recipe actually invented it while staying at a hotel, and he was able to obtain all but the black beans from their complimentary breakfast. Talk about easy!

For the “meat” of this recipe, you can use Simple Truth Organic Black Beans and ST Instant Oatmeal to create a solid and nutrient-packed base. These two ingredients give this burger a unique texture and taste, different from most burgers you have probably tried before, so be ready for a pleasant surprise.
