Spinach Burger, Gluten Free Dairy Free

To join me for Gluten Free-zer Friday, please add your link to a gluten free freezer- friendly recipe below.  I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

With summer here (really it is.  Umm… yeah…) get some burgers in the freezer so you can enjoy those lazy days without worrying about “What’s for dinner?”  I make these with fresh mint when I want to serve with a coconut yogurt cucumber sauce, fresh cilantro when topping with salsa, or parsley if I am just going for the green.  Enjoy!
