Your Healthy Burger

Prep time:  15 minutes

Serving size:  1

 

INGREDIENTS

1 whole-wheat bun

6 ounces extra lean beef sirloin

1 extra thick slice of sweet potato

1 small radish, sliced

1/3 red onion, sliced into rings

DIRECTIONS: Shape extra lean sirloin into a patty. Chop half inch slice of sweet potato. Slice onions, cucumber and radishes. Rinse arugula and let dry on a paper towel. Mix a half cup of arugula with egg whites and fry on a skillet on high for two minutes or until it takes shape (you can also microwave this in a microwave safe dish).
