A different twist on the traditional hamburger. I like any recipe that squeezes in more green vegetables.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make sauce: combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Heat oil in nonstick skillet; add onion, half the zucchini and cook 3-4 minutes, until tender.
  3. Cool.
  4. Toss beef with zucchini mixture, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
  5. Shape into four 1/2" thick patties.
  6. Heat grill pan.
  7. Grill patties 5-6 minutes per side until an instant-read thermometer inserted into side of burger registers 160 degrees (165 degrees for turkey).
  8. Place burgers, sauce, and remaining zucchini inside pita.

Pretty good, original recipe, the zucchini is a healthy addition and the pita also is a nice change. The sauce is also innovative and delicious. Nice combination.
