Chicken Burgers

The one thing I don't like doing when its this hot is turning on the oven so the BBQ tends to get a lot of use, and there are a lot of salads and raw veggies. The market down the street sells free range organic ground chicken so I bought some to make this yummy burgers - perfect for the grill. The bed of salad is a kale salad, but I really didn't enjoy it so I'm not going to bother to share that recipe with you. I would suggest serving it as an open faced burger on a bun with your favorite toppings  and a side salad instead.

1 onion
1 carrot, grated
1 celery stalk, diced
1 C baby spinach, chopped
1 handful parsley, chopped
1 lb ground chicken
1 Tbsp tamari sauce

1. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a frying pan. Saute the onion, carrot, and celery over medium heat until softened. 
2. Add the spinach and saute until just wilted. 
3. Let mixture cool to room temperature, then using hands, mix vegetables with ground chicken, parsley, and tamari. Form patties with hands. 
4. Refrigerate burgers for a couple of hours (or overnight) to firm up. 
5. BBQ or fry in a small amount of olive oil
6. Sprinkle burgers with some sesame seeds ( especially if you are going to serve on top of a salad).
