It isn’t easy being green

Lately I’ve been into creating burgers with flair. While the all beef patty on a bun ketchup optional (if you don’t get that reference, go watch Parks & Recreation) is pretty amazing, it can get boring. Especially for someone who isn’t a huge fan of ground beef (remember how I eat it organic?).

We bought chicken burger patties since they were on sale and the chive pesto chicken burger was born.

What you’ll need –

Pesto

  • 1/2 cup packed chives
  • 1/2 cup packed parsley (stems removed)
  • 2 tbsp of almond slivers or pine nuts
  • 1 -2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

In your food processor, pulse the chives, parsley, almonds and garlic. Flip the switch to on and drizzle the olive oil in. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the lemon juice.

Burgers

  • 1/2 lb of ground chicken formed into patties (use a whole pound if you’re feeding more than two people)
  • 1/2 cup raw spinach
  • Buns
  • Cheddar cheese

Cook the burgers well (this is chicken people!). Meanwhile, toast your buns, layer the bottom with spinach. Melt cheese on the burgers. Transfer to the bun. Add a tablespoon of chive pesto. Enjoy!

(Ignore my messy table!)
