Veg Burgers

before cooking

Success!! I made several adjustments to a previous attempt in order to create a veg burger that is oh-so-tasty AND isn’t dry and crumbly. I prefer to eat these without a bun, topped with tomatoes and/or avocado with a side of baked fries.

Veg Burgers
Serves: 8
  • 1 onion diced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 TB chia, soaked in ½ cup warm water
  • 1 cup oats (processed into flour)
  • 1½ cup fresh bread crumbs (not dried)
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1 cup cooked beans (black and great northern)
  • handful fresh parsley and/or other herbs
  • ⅓ cup almonds chopped
  • ½ cup pepitas or sunflower seeds
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 TB soy sauce
  • 1 TB worstershire
  • 2 TB chili powder
  • 1 TB coriander
  • 1 TB oregano
  • salt & pepper
  1. Saute onion, garlic, and carrot until tender. Add all other ingredients to large bowl and mix to incorporate. Divide into 8 portions and form into tightly packed patties.
  2. Fry on medium low for 5 minutes on each side or until browned.

The soaked chia seeds are amazing. It creates a gelatinous goo, very similar to egg. This is a food processor recipe. I basically took many turns whizzing up ingredients and dumping into the bowl. Lots of steps, but none time sensitive or in any particular order.
