Even in the phase of our newfound love for sushi and ramen, burgers still hold firm ground in the list of our favourites. Long before pizza took over, it was a burger we would crave on our cheat days and special days like weekends. But, now if your health-driven mind had dwindled its presence in your menu, why not make healthier versions of it? As we touch the much-awaited weekend, let's sate our burger craving with healthier recipes that will make you and your family happy. Here we have some awesome healthy burger ideas that offer a mix of both health and taste.
The first thing to make a burger healthier is by swapping the buns with healthier options like wheat buns. Then instead of deep frying the patty, shallow fry or bake it. And ensure that the filling of the burger is full of nutrition. Replacing mayonnaise and cheese with hummus, pesto, hung curd and other such sauces is also a good idea.
