I was inspired to make these burgers when I came across a recipe for spanakopita. Unfortunately traditional spanakopita involves GRAINS (the phyllo dough) and DAIRY (the feta & ricotta cheese)… two things that I try to avoid.
So using a few things I had in my pantry… I came up with something much more primal-friendly 🙂
makes 4 servings
- 3 cups of spinach
- 1/8 of a large red onion
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup almond meal
- 1 tbsp of coconut milk
- ¾ tsp cayenne powder
- 1 lb of ground beef (I use 80/20)
- 1 tbsp of Coconut Oil
Blend the spinach, red onion, egg, almond meal, coconut milk, and cayenne pepper together in a food processor.
In a large bowl, add the spinach mixture to the ground beef and combine them together until they are well mixed.
Form into 4 large-sized patties.
Heat the coconut oil over medium heat in a large skillet. When the oil is hot, add the burgers and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side.
Serve over a bed of spinach (or whatever else your heart desires) and enjoy!
