The perfect veggie burger. Mmmmm. I have never been a fan of beef burgers, something about it with cold veggies. Ew. I dont mind chicken burgers, but veggie. Oh, I love veggie burgers. I ran across this one from Oh She Glows which she got from a friend who worked at a restaurant. Well, lets just say its amazing.
Veggie Burger Slightly Adapted from Oh She Glows
Yeild 6 Medium Burgers
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 cup oats, processed into flour* (other flours might work)
1.5 cups bread crumbs
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and roughly pureed or mashed
Heaping 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley (or fresh herb of choice)
1/3 cup almonds, chopped (toasted if preferred)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, (toasted if preferred)
1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp kosher salt)
This mixture holds together so well, just combine all the ingredients and mix with a spoon or your hands, which I think is much easier. Throw it on the Barbie (BBQ) and it takes about 5 minutes on each side and it gets gorgeous grill marks. I assembled it with avocado, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese plus a bit of mustard. It was quite yummo. And SO FILLING. You will only need one of these. I couldnt even finish my burger. But you end up so satisfied!
Have fun Pinning! And cooking!
