Zucchini Burgers


Zucchini Burgers

It has been awhile since we posted because Athanasia has been swamped with her final exams. We are sorry about that. Exams are brutal for physics students! Athanasia had this amazing idea to make zucchini burgers using some veggies and spices. I helped her come up with some of the flavor enhancements but it was her genius idea to include spearmint in them, although I had my doubts at first… she was right all along! These burgers were amazing and according to her good friend Paulina they are also low in calories! Here is how we made them:
