Main meal vol. 5: Chicken burgers and Mediterranean vegetables

4 years ago

Lately I have been trying to eat more healthy, i.e. more meat and vegetable, less carbs. Most mornings I eat yoghurt, muesli and fruits or berries, so I like to have a bit more variation for my lunch and dinner. Yesterday, I made burgers from chicken meat and Mediterranean vegetables.

Ingredients for the burgers:
- grounded chicken meat
- onion
- garlic
- salt and grill spice
- olive oil
- optional: egg and/or flour

Ingredients for Mediterranean vegetables:
- onion
- bell peppers
- zucchini
- olive oil
- salt and Mediterranean herbs
- optional: feta cheese

1. Cut onion, bell peppers and zucchini into chunks. Add olive oil, salt and Mediterranean herbs.
2. Put the vegetable mix into a frying pan or cook it in the oven.
3. While the vegetables are cooking, cut the onion and garlic into small pieces. Mix it into the chicken meat. Add also salt, grill spice and a little bit of oil. If you want to make thin burgers or you left your onion a bit bigger size, you might want to also add some egg and flour (it helps the burger not to break).
4. Take chunks of the meat mixture, shape them and put them to a frying pan with olive oil to fry. You can also grill the burgers if you want.
5. Once the vegetables are cooked, take them from the heat. If you want, you can some feta cheese to the vegetables. Serve with the fried burgers.

After thoughts:
I have been eating these Mediterranean vegetables a lot lately, because I really love bell pepper. I like sometimes adding feta cheese to the vegetables, since it gives nice flavor with the vegetables. These vegetables are so easy and fast to do, since you dont need to peel anything and you are supposed to leave them into bigger chunks. Love!

My boyfriend doesnt eat any beef, so we eat mainly chicken in our household. Since I started dating with him, I tried for the first time to make burgers from chicken meat. Now I always cook burgers from chicken, because it just tastes so much better. I generally dont add any egg or flour, since I rather not add anything to my burgers than what is necessary for taste.
