When you make them from scratch, hamburgers can be guaranteed low fat with as many delicious toppings as you dare to prepare. I grate the onion so no one knows it's there. Serve on whole-wheat buns.


  • 500 g lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cooking onion , grated
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • In a large bowl, combine beef, egg, wheat germ, onion, soy sauce and pepper. Mix well with your hands and form patties. Spray a non-stick frying pan lightly with cooking oil and heat to medium high (or heat up the grill). Cook patties 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until no longer pink inside. (Due to E. coli, it’s not safe to serve hamburgers rare. Cook fully.)
