Tangy Spinach Artichoke Burgers - with the flavors of your favorite classic party dip, these protein rich burgers are quick and easy!
Tangy Spinach Artichoke Burgers
A warm bubbly spinach artichoke dip is always a winner, right? I know it is always one of the first empty dishes on any party table I've seen... and I am usually a culprit in the disappearance...
Okay, perhaps a stretch to think these taste just like our favorite dip, but the tangy artichoke is definitely there, and it gives a great texture bite to this burger. The spinach and the beans amp up the protein, making this a great lunch or dinner option. (I'd even add these to a breakfast scramble or sandwich.)
And the toppings - you can stack all sorts of things on these burgers.
Pickled green beans? Around here, we will top our burgers with an.ee.thing.uh.
Whether it is pickled green beans, or Citrus Pickled Onions and a new cream cheese...
these Tangy Spinach Artichoke Burgers are a tasty addition to summertime bbq, game day, or Tuesday!
We have been grilling with friends and enjoying the patio parties all summer, and these burgers have been the star of the grill more than once. Once they are par-baked, I refrigerate or freeze these to heat and eat later.
If I know I am going to use these (read: have a party) within a day or two, I'll just keep these burgers in an airtight container in the fridge. If I make a bunch of these, then we decide "hey! it's summer! let's pack up the dachshund and the car and go on an impromptu trip!" then these will get transferred to the freezer. Wrap them a bit better for freezing.
Speaking of toppings, I even topped one with Spinach Dip. Ha!
You know I love my spinach dip, and that topping will be happening again!
and sometimes we ditch the bread altogether, and grab a big ol' chard leaf to wrap the burger in. We still stack it with all the burger toppings...
(also, *THIS photo* shows how well these patties hold up when you bite into a strong chard leaf wrap. there's a cute dachshund, too.)
Tangy Spinach Artichoke Burgers
lightly adapted from White Bean Veggie Burgers
YIELD: 5-6 patties
dairy, egg, soy, oil and gluten free, vegan
1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans
2 tablespoons cannellini aquafaba
1 small yellow onion, peeled and minced
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 (packed) cup fresh baby spinach
1 cup artichoke hearts, drained and finely diced
1 cup gluten free quick cooking oats
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Open can of beans, transfer 2 tablespoons aquafaba to large mixing bowl. Set aside.
Pour beans from can into mesh strainer. Drain beans without rinsing; allow beans to drain as you continue.
In a large skillet over medium heat, combine onion, garlic, and spinach. Sauté in a bit of water until veggies are soft and onions are translucent. Remove from heat.
While sautéing, dice artichoke hearts. Set aside.
Add drained beans to the 2 tablespoons the reserved aquafaba in mixing bowl. Mash with a fork or potato masher. Fold in sautéed onion/spinach, artichoke hearts, oats and salt/ spices. Stir to combine completely.
Using hands, form mixture into patties – mine were about 3 ½ inches across, ¾ inch thick?
Place patties on prepared baking sheet, bake at 350 °F for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, flip to other side. Return to oven and bake for 10 additional minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve immediately, or cool to enjoy later.
Once cooled, these can be frozen – wrap individually in foil, then store in plastic baggie. Refrigerate in similar wrap (sealed container) for 2-3 days.
now THAT'S a tasty burger!
