Anyone have any good recipes for homeade veggie burgers?!
These are so good you may even have some meat eates enjoying them as well. However I like to enjoy them n a lettuce wrap with cheese (if your grandma doesnp;t do regular cheese almond "swiss: is also great) wth ketchp and mayo (o mayo sub)
I had these at a vegan potluck. The "burgers" were moist, crunchy, and tasty. And ours were cold by the time we got them but they were so good I had 2. And they fill you up so well that I regetted eating 2 becuase it felt like I just ate Thanksgiving dinner.
Kasha and Oat Garden Burgers:
5 1/4 cups veggie broth
1-2 vegan bullion cubes for added flavor
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup kasha (dried buck wheat groats)
3 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
2 tbsp died onion flakes
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cups finely chopped fresh veggies of choice (carrots, spianch, garlic, zucchini etc...)
1 cup fresh finely chopped herbs
1/2 onion minced
1/2 cup mushrooms stemmed and chopped small
4-6 tsp seseme seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds or other nuts chopped small (pceans, almonds etc...)
1 tbsp veggie oil
salt and pepper
olive oil for brushing patties
In a large pan the veggie broth to a boil, add onion flakes, onion powder, italian seasoning, garlic powder and bullion cubes. Stir in kasha, oats, and olive oil and allow to simmer for about 15 min, stir frequently.
You will have a very thick sticky mixture, remove from heat and set aside to cool to at least room temp. At this point you may choose to put it in the fridge overnight.
Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet and saute the onion and garlic on medium high heat for about 2 min. Add te shredded veggies and cotinue to saute until soft. Add seseme seeds, mushrooms herbs, and sunflower seeds. Saute 5 more min stirring frequently. Adjust seasoning to taste.
Combine the veggie and kasha/oat mix by hand until everything is well incorperated. Cover and rest at least 1 hour in the fridge. Everything should be cool enough to handle confortably.
In the mean time line a cookie sheet with e parchment paper, and if you choose spray with Pam etc... Scoop out about 1/2 cup of the mix and roll into a ball and flatten into a pattie, place on cookie sheet.
Give another quick spray of pam or brush with oil or melted butter/margerine. Bake at 350 for 25 min, flip then cook for another 20 min or until light golden brown. You coul also pan fry these.
Enjoy as is or wrap individually and freeze, reheat in the oven, toaster or a dry skillet-reheating them in a greased skillet with make hem fall apart.
**I think these would be great t leave in small balls, bake ad then simmer in spaghetti sauce. The fresh herbs would flavor the sauce and I think these could also soak up some great flavors.
***P.S. after making this for the first time. I used left over veggies, and pulsed the in the food process and use a little over a cup. But I wouldn’t recommend it. That flavor was awesome but the texture was not so appealing.
Also after tasting this I would be willing to sit down and have bowl full of this for breakfast or lunch.
********************These make a lot. You can do a 1/2 batch and still have plenty. Butthey freeze well.
be a man a tell her it's 100% organic with no meat added. but make them with ground beef.
