2 lb Ground Beef, (95% lean)
1 medium zucchini, grated
1 medium carrot, grated
6 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup cilantro, chopped
¼ cup plain bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
16 whole wheat slider buns
Preheat gas or charcoal grill to 400°F.
Combine Ground Beef and next 10 ingredients in a large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 16 2 oz thick patties. Make a small indention in the center of the burger with your thumb.
Place burgers on oiled grates and grill for approximately 3-5 minutes on one side. Flip once, grilling on the other side for 3-5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F with a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the burger.
Serve on a bun with half a plate of fruits and vegetables, and a glass of milk.
