  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup shredded carrot
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced green onion
  • ¼ cup shredded zucchini
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces 90% lean or higher ground beef
  • 8 ( ½ inch) slices whole wheat baguette, toasted
  • 1 small tomato, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup thinly shaved zucchini (see Tip)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large bowl, combine egg white, carrot, green onion, shredded zucchini, garlic and pepper. Add beef; mix well. Shape the mixture into four ¾-inch-thick patties.
  2. For a charcoal grill, place patties on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 12 to 14 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of each patty registers 160°F, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
  3. Serve each patty between two baguette slices with spinach, tomato and shaved zucchini.
  • Tip: Use a vegetable peeler to thinly shave the zucchini.
