Kale Chicken Burgers
These burgers will make your tastebuds scream kale-yeah! Burgers often get a bad reputation for being a less than ideal food choice. But these patties can serve as a tasty vessel for lean protein sources and colorful plant-based ingredients.
Going green with kale is a gut-friendly way to elevate your burger’s flavor and nutrition profile. Specifically, kale is an excellent source of vitamins A, K, and C to keep your body feeling its best.1
Don’t forget to add tummy-saving toppings such as tomatoes, lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, or bell pepper slices for a customized color-filled crunch. But, if you like big-buns and you cannot lie, opt for a gluten-free selection to prevent unwanted symptoms of IBS. Or, if you prefer a more itty-bitty option, transform your patties into tasty sliders. Talk about a versatile dish!
