This low GI recipe has been adapted from a recipe in Michelle Trute's 'cooking with conscience book 2' which focuses on low-fat, low GI, easily prepared food. In making this, I processed the garlic and zucchini and used a small amount of oil to panfry the patties in a non-stick pan, and added a dollop of tzaziki on top of the burgers. Zaar would not allow me to include tzatziki as an ingredient, so I've included Greek yoghurt which is what I'd use if I had no tzatziki on hand. If you haven't tried Greek yoghurt before, it's much creamier than other yoghurts. And if you want a good recipe for tzatziki, I recommend Ravenseyes’ Tzatziki or Kittencal's Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber and Yogurt Salad). 160 grams of ground chicken = just over 5 ounces of ground chicken.

Directions

  1. Mix the chicken, egg white, mustard, paprika, chopped parsley, garlic and grated zucchini in a bowl; add salt and pepper to taste (if using) and shape the chicken mixture into two patties; wipe the grill or oven tray (whichever you are using) with the oil and cook on the grill for 5 minutes or place on a tray and bake in a moderate oven for 10 minutes (180°C/350°-375°F/4-5 gas mark).
  2. Toast the buns, divide the salad greens or baby spinach leaves, sliced tomato and cucumber slices inside each of the rolls; add salt and pepper, to taste (if using); top with the chicken patties and add a dollop of Greek yoghurt (if using).
