Veggie Burgers

  • Ingredients:
    1 cup cooked Quinoa
    1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
    1/4 large onion, chopped
    1-2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 medium carrot, chopped
    1 medium bell pepper, chopped
    5-6 cremini mushrooms, chopped
    2 flax eggs (1/4 cup warm water plus 2 tbsp. flax meal)
    1 chia egg (3 tbsp warm water plus 1 tbsp chia seeds)
    1/2 cup GF Oats, processed into a flour
    1 tsp. Chipotle Seasoning
    Salt and pepper
  • Instructions:
    In the food processor, combine the onion, garlic, carrot, peppers, mushrooms and half the can of beans.  Pulse until vegetables are fine. 

    Add the flax and chia eggs, quinoa and seasoning and pulse until everything is combined. 

    Transfer to a large bowl.  Add the rest of the beans to the quinoa mixture, stir to combine. Taste mixture and adjust seasoning to taste, add oat flour stir to combine (add more if it seems too wet). 

    Form the mixture into patties.  Heat oil in a large skillet on medium heat, cook patties for about 3-5 minutes on each side until the outside is browned and the patty is heated through.

    Serve on a hamburger roll, alone or like me on a lettuce leaf with the Avocado Creme or any and all your favorite burger toppings. (I added some ketchup and fried onions...Yum!)  The outside gets a nice crunch and the inside has a really nice texture.

    Avocado Creme

    1 ripe avocado*
    1 tsp. chipotle seasoning
    juice of a 1/2 lime
    Salt and pepper

    In a food processor, combine all the ingredients and pulse until smooth.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

    *My avocado wasn't really ready, so since I wanted to use it right away (my mistake for not buying it a few days early) I used the microwave to quickly "ripen" it.  The results, not bad.  But I would let it naturally ripen if you have the time, use the microwave only in a pinch.
