The lean­est burger that has ever graced a grill, with an ex­tra flip: there’s no meat in it

HIT THE JACK­POT Per burger: 46g

Sweet pota­toes put ba­nanas to shame with over 120mg more potas­sium, which keeps your en­ergy high in the sun.

BEET YOUR BEST Per burger: 6g

Nu­tri­ent-packed beet­root con­tains ni­trate, which, when con­verted to ni­tric ox­ide, boosts blood flow in your mus­cles.

SMALL BUT MIGHTY Per burger: 34g

Fi­bre-rich black beans will not only keep you sated, but lower your blood sugar, off­set­ting the ef­fects of other carbs in your burger.

SU­PER SEED Per burger: 12g

Meat-free burg­ers needn’t be pro­tein poor. Quinoa has nearly twice as much of the macro as rice, plus all nine es­sen­tial amino acids.
