Green Apple and Brie Boca Burgers



These Green Apple and Brie Boca Burgers are a delicious mouthful of yum.

Green Apple and Brie Boca Burgers Recipe
Are you a Boca burger person? I tried my first Boca burger over 12 years ago. A friend of mine was talking about how they had "Boca Fridays" at their house in the summertime. I tried one and was hooked...they're so delicious and full of protein, too. My husband and I have been enjoying Boca burgers on a very regular basis ever since then. And now I'm loving these new Boca Essentials, too.
I love them for my ongoing weight loss journey...they fit in perfectly with our new eating lifestyle.

Check out my recipe for Green Apple and Brie Boca Burgers below. You will love them!

The Boca Essentials line includes three bold new flavors, including: Breakfast Scramble with potatoes, scrambled eggs and vegetables, Chile Relleno with green chile peppers, black beans and brown rice, and the ones I used here: Roasted Vegetables and Red Quinoa with brown rice. I've tried all of the new flavors and they're all delicious. Loving the breakfast option, now, too!
The new Boca Essentials is a line of vegetable and grain-based patties that offers a source of complete protein to those of us looking for meatless meal options. Complete protein refers to the nine essential amino acids that the human body needs, but cannot produce on its own. Plus, these patties are so tasty!

The Green Apple and Brie Boca Burger recipe I've created starts out with caramelized onions. The key to perfect caramelized onions is cooking them over low heat, very slowly. I like my onions lighter in color, but feel free to let them cook to a darker, richer color, if you prefer that.

A thinly sliced Granny Smith Apple also adds the perfect amount of (unexpected) tartness to this dish! Plus Granny Smith Apples and Brie are a match made in heaven.

And gosh, who doesn't love a cheesy-melted burger top? The Brie takes it over the top!

Green Apple and Brie Boca Burgers
Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into thin rings
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 Roasted Vegetables & Red Quinoa with Brown Rice Boca Essentials Patties
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into thin rings
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 ounces Brie Cheese, sliced for burgers
  • 1 large Granny Smith Apple, thinly sliced
  • 4 large rolls or burger buns
  • butter lettuce
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise 
Directions:
Heat oil over medium heat in large saucepan. Add onion rings (separated out) into pan and turn heat to low. Caramelize onions over low heat for 30-45 minutes, tossing occasionally. Once onions are almost finished (and cooked to your desired consistency and color), add garlic and toss. Leave over low heat to keep warm.
Heat 4 Roasted Vegetables & Red Quinoa with Brown Rice Boca Patties according to package directions. When patties are almost finished, add Brie cheese to the tops of the patties, allowing it to melt.
Spread mayonnaise on the bottoms of the buns or rolls. Add butter lettuce and top with cheese-smothered patties. Pile caramelized onions on top of patties and then layer apple slices on top, covering with the bun.

I like to criss-cross my apple slices to make sure a bit of apple is in almost every bite of these Green Apple and Brie Boca Burgers.

The Boca brand was born when a chef in Boca Raton, Fla., perfected a veggie burger that was so good, he needed to set up a separate warehouse to meet growing demand. Since 2000, the Boca brand has been providing veggie burgers and meatless products to vegetarian and health-conscious consumers.
