Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons bulgur or cracked wheat
  • 150 g ground beef about 1/3 of a pound
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • A few drops of fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons red onion minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1 Flatout FolditĀ® Artisan Flatbread
  • 1-2 tablespoons hummus
  • 1/3 cup salad mix of your choice
  • 2-3 slices grape tomatoes sliced (or 2of a medium/large tomato)
  • 4 slices of cucumber
  • 1-2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese or feta cheese

Instructions

  1. Place bulgur or cracked wheat in a small bowl and stir in about 1/3 cup boiling water. Let sit for about 10 minutes or until water is fully absorbed by the wheat. Then, press the wheat in a colander to remove any excess water.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the wheat well with the ground beef, seasonings, drops of lime juice, red onion, mint, and parsley. Shape into a chubby burger patty and then cook over medium heat (large burner) for about 4 minutes per side.
  3. On a plate or flat surface, arrange the burger: lay flatbread open, spread hummus on (bottom), place salad leaves on top and then arrange 1/2 of the slices of tomato and cucumber. Place cooked burger patty on top. Arrange the remaining slices of tomato and cucumber on top of the patty, spoon on the cheese, and finish by spreading more hummus on the top section of flatbread. Cover the burger with the top flatbread. Serve with a wedge of lime to squeeze over the patty if desired, chips, and a chilled beverage. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

No egg, cornstarch, or any other binding ingredient is necessary to form the burger patty because of the bulgur wheat. The bulgur/cracked wheat will give the patty a nice crust.
