Anyone looking for a iron rich vegan recipe made into a burger, then look no further! I found a recipe for an iron-rich salad on www.amysavagenutrition.com, called ‘The Iron Man Salad’, which with a few adjustments I turned into an Iron Man Burger. Link to the original recipe at the bottom of this post.
I swapped out the avocado as I think it’s nicer to eat intact than hidden in a burger (can’t waste an avo!). Instead, I added soy sauce, mixed beans, turmeric and blended oats (making an oat flour). The burger turned out really well! It went beautifully in a brown seeded bun with crisp salad, avocado and Sriracher. As amysavagenutrition says in their post – the iron will be better absorbed when eaten alongside vitamin C; as long as coffee, tea and red wine are avoided for a few hours afterwards (a bit of a challenge as I love a mid-afternoon tea, but gotta be worth it!). The kale, broccoli & lemon in the burger provide vitamin C, however I ‘fortified’ my burger with a crisp salad too 🙂
