2003 Best Unique Recipe Winner | Pritikin Recipe of the Year Contest These delicious burgers take about 30 minutes to make. The vegetables are sautéed before they are added to the black beans. About half of the beans are kept whole while the remainder are mashed. This helps bind the burgers and gives them texture….
Our Pritikin Chicken Veggie Burgers each has just a half-gram of saturated fat. That’s 1/14th the amount in typical fast food chicken sandwiches. And with our Pritikin patty plus a whole-wheat hamburger bun, your total calorie count is only about 330 calories. Most fast food chains’ chicken sandwiches have double the calories, and that’s not counting the side of fries.
Here’s a great way to take a nice hefty serving of veggies with you wherever you go. Cook up these two Vegetable Loaves over the weekend, then wrap slices individually. Pack with some whole-wheat bread and Dijon mustard. Want it warm? Just nuke your veggie slice in a microwave for 1 minute.
Here’s an easy spicy dinner. While your chicken is simmering on the stove, prepare a tasty quick-cooking whole grain like quinoa or brown rice (convenient fast-cooking versions of brown rice are now in supermarkets). And, in keeping with the Mexican theme of the evening, jazz up your grains with some fresh low-sodium salsa. Got leftover chicken breasts? Freeze them for future dinners or lunchtime sandwiches.
Double or triple the batch of these bean burgers and freeze them for easy lunches, dinners, and snacks in the future. When you’re enjoying bean burgers, you’re not only saving yourself from the plaque-building saturated fat of regular hamburgers, you’re also improving your heart health because beans, all beans, are rich in soluble fiber, which actively lowers blood cholesterol.
Invite the gang over and fire up the grill! These tender, juicy bison burgers are sure to please, and each burger has just 1 gram of saturated fat.
