Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge American Pink Catawba

 Sauce Ingredients:

8 oz nonfat plain hummus (about 1 cup)

1 ½ Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp parsley, chopped

1 lb ground beef (95% lean)

1 ½ tsp Pepper-Herb Seasoning Mix (recipe follows)

Combine sauce ingredients in small saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat about 8 minutes or until sauce is heated through. Set aside and keep warm.

Combine ground beef and seasoning mix in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four ½-inch-thick patties.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 10–12 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, until no longer pink in center and juices show no pink color, turning once; season with salt. Garnish with carrots and celery sticks as desired.

Line bottom of each bun with lettuce, tomato, and cucumber slices; top with burger and 2 tablespoons sauce. Close sandwiches. Serve with remaining sauce, if desired.

Combine 1 tablespoon dried basil leaves, crushed; 1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano leaves, crushed; 1 ½ teaspoons lemon pepper; 1 ½ teaspoons onion powder; and ¾ teaspoon rubbed sage. Store in a airtight container. Shake well before using to blend.
