As per a suggestion from my May08 friend, Rachael, tonight I made my own version of Rachael Ray’s Florentine Dream Burgers. Her recipe called for a gooey cheese sauce, but since I still can’t find a good soy ricotta, I opted to just make the burgers and top with shredded soy cheese. See the original recipe here.
I thought these were quite good. The spinach kept them very moist. Hubs thought we could do with about half the amount of spinach. Either way, they are definitely worth trying.
1lb. Lean Ground Beef
1 box Frozen Spinach (thawed and wrung dry)
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 Small Yellow Onion
Salt & Pepper to taste
Cheese of your choice
Place a skillet over medium-high heat. Add a small amount of olive oil.
Add the onion and garlic to the pan, and cook until tender, 4-5 minutes. Move the veggies out into a large mixing bowl, add the spinach and toss to combine.
Add the ground beef, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Form into 4 equal patties.
Add to hot skillet and cook until desired doneness is achieved – about 5 min. each side for med-well. During the last minute, add cheese and melt.
