Crazy-healthy Burger
Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 360 g of (very) lean burger beef
  • 2 mushrooms
  • 2 slices of Gouda cheese
  • 1 onion,
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 large tomato
  • ½ avocado, halved
  • 2 teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil
  • NO SAUCE of any kind (that’s hopefully good news)
  • NO salt, NO pepper
  1. First off, preheat the grill to a medium-high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, I would recommend you wash all the vegetables very well under cold running water and then cut them in big round slices. (You don’t necessarily need to chop the vegetables as I say, maybe you have a different style, which is perfectly fine).
  3. Take the beef out of the bag, wash it (as I always do) and put it on paper towels to drain. Brush the olive oil on top of the burgers, put them on the grill (brushed side down) and then brush them on the other side. Add the red bell pepper slices, onions and mushrooms on the grill, too.Then after a few minutes, when the burgers start to cook, add the following ingredients on top of the burgers:
  4. a) Put some onions, which should now be golden, on the burgers.
  5. b) Then, add the slice of gouda cheese on top of the onion and keep them under the heat until the cheese melts.
  6. c) Finally, add the avocado and keep it for 2 more minutes. If you do it this way, you won’t need any extra ketchup or whatever sauce you use on a regular basis.
  7. If you’ve got a toaster, I would strongly recommend to toast the bread. It gives it a crunchy taste.
  8. Once the beef and veggies are done ( I’m not giving you precise timings as they depend on the type of grill you use), put them in the whole grain buns and serve them on a plate. Add a couple of lettuce leaves along with the red bell peppers and mushrooms on top of it and that’s your “promised” healthy bite. Enjoy it! :)
