Burgers Florentine


  • 12 oz (2 bags) baby spinach,
  • ½ cup bread crumbs (gluten-free if you’re avoiding gluten)
  • 2 cups walnut pieces, toasted
  • ¼ red onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp tamari
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • ½ Tbsp basil puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • buns, for serving (gluten-free if you’re avoiding gluten)


  • If frozen, thaw spinach, drain and wring out excess water. If the spinach is fresh, chop off the stems and saute until wilted; wring out any excess liquid.
  • Combine bread crumbs, walnuts, onions, tamari, garlic, basil, egg, and yeast. Blend thoroughly in a blender. Place ingredients in a large bowl, add spinach and cheese, and mix thoroughly.
  • Form into patties.
  • Bake 15–20 minutes, until burgers begin to brown on the edges.
