Popeye Patties

Hmmm- I love burgers! They are such a fun dish to make. These spinach patties are great, if you are looking for a healthier, vegetarian burger option.  Making your own sauce is also really simple. Try the mustard sauce below- it is prepared in no time and super tasty! Get creative with your toppings! I like to add feta cheese and grilled vegetables. Or how about a fried egg and some hot sauce? I often make one or two patties more and add them to my breakfast sandwich the next morning. 

Ingredients

(4-6 patties)

500g frozen spinach

2 eggs

4 tbsp chia seeds

1 onion

paprika spice

salt, pepper to taste

For the mustard sauce

1 tbsp tahini

2 tbsp mustard

1 tbsp honey

lemon juice from 1/2 lemon

Method

Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add the chopped onions and fry until soft. Reduce the heat and add the frozen spinach. Boil until the spinach is thawed.

Place the spinach in a strainer and use a spoon to remove any excess liquid. Transfer the spinach into a large bowl and add the eggs, chia seeds and spices. Stir well and let sit for about 10- 15 minutes.

In the mean time whisk together the ingredients for the sauce. Prepare the burger buns with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. (Or other veggies of your choice)

Heat oil in a pan and press the spinach mixture into patties. Fry each side on medium heat for about 3-5 minutes, depending on how thick your patties are.

Place the patties on the burger buns, add the mustard sauce, enjoy and become as strong as Popeye!
