  • In a large bowl, combine egg white, carrot, green onion, shredded zucchini, garlic and pepper. Add beef; mix well. Shape the mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.

  • 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 degrees 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.)

  • Serve each patty between two baguette slices with spinach, tomato and shaved zucchini.


Tip: Use a vegetable peeler to thinly shave the zucchini.
