Geisinger unveils its newest kitchen creation: The Feinburger, a vegan burger named in honor of Geisinger President and CEO David T. Feinberg, M.D., MBA. The
hearty and flavorful patty will hit all Geisinger patient and café menus by the end of September.

“Our team serves a lot of people with many different dietary needs,” said Geisinger Executive Chef and Feinburger creator Matthew Cervay. “So when we built this dish, we made it so it could fit a vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free diet.”

The burger’s patty, which is made from a base blend of red rice, plant grains, whole grain brown rice and split peas, is preservative free. Additional ingredients for the patty include celery, carrots, onions, garlic, fresh thyme and parsley. It’s seasoned with smoked paprika, cumin, kosher salt and black pepper before it hits the grill.

“It’s a really clean burger,” Cervay notes. “The burger not only tastes good but has less sodium and cholesterol than a traditional beef burger.”

A meal that not only meets so many dietary needs but also is a healthy option for all is
something that Cervay has been looking to bring to Geisinger’s menu. When he had the
opportunity to present the vegan burger to Dr. Feinberg, he hoped this was that dish.

“I asked Dr. Feinberg to taste it, and if he gave his approval that I would like to put it on our menu,” Cervay remembers. “He took a bite, and gave me a thumbs up.”

The burger can be topped with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, farmers cheese or a
chipotle lime sauce, depending on one’s diet.

The Feinburger already is on the patient catering menu and will hit Geisinger cafés across the health system on Monday, Sept. 25.Follow us on Social Media
