Now this is a ‘real’ veggie burger recipe! Unlike those processed frozen veggie burgers you buy at the store, which have no decent nutritional or even flavor value, this recipe will satisfy all senses and nourish you and your family. The flavor and texture of these burgers are unsurpassed! I usually double the recipe so I can have plenty of extra so I can make the patties (layer each pattie between wax paper) and freeze them so I can have some seriously delicious and nutritious fast food available right at home – perfect for those who want or have a more natural lifestyle.
A ‘Real’ Veggie Burger Recipe
- 4 Cups Black Beans (canned & drained is ok, but organic cooked & drained is better)
- 1 1/2 cups Brown Rice cooked
- 1 large mashed Sweet Potato
- 1 cup Pine Nuts (chopped fine)
- 1 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1 1/4 cups Carrot Juice
- 1 cup finely grated carrots (or, use the pulp from the juiced carrots)
- 1/2 a large Onion (chopped fine)
- 6-8 cloves of finely chopped Garlic
- 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 Tablespoons Parsley (dried)
- 2 Tablespoons Thyme (dried)
- 2 Tablespoons Dill Weed (dried)
- 2 Tablespoons Celery Seed (dried)
- 1 Tablespoon Curry Powder
- 1 Tablespoon Orange Peel (dried)
- Sea Salt to taste (maybe 3/4 teaspoon)
- 2 Avocado’s peeled and mashed (optional garnish for on top of patties in place of catsup)
- A nice Goat’s Milk Cheese is terrific on these too!
Preheat oven to 325. Mix all ingredients together. Make patties. Lightly oil a cookie sheet and bake patties for 30-45 minutes (depending on thickness & diameter of patties), flip after 15 minutes.
Serve with dollops of Avocado or melted Goat’s Cheese, or let cool and freeze (without the toppings) for a fast dinner. Double recipe for larger families and freeze the extra’s.
Note: the patties can fall apart easily so handle with care during and after baking.
Makes about 14 – 3 inch diameter, 1/2 inch thick patties.
