Veggie Burgers: It's hard work to be a veggie girl!
I decided to make some veggie burgers today for lunch. The good news is, one batch netted five burgers- so I froze up four for the future- the bad news, man it's time consuming to eat whole foods and vegetables! But so worth it. I was really pleased with this recipe- The taste was spot on, and actually shaped up into a 'patty' quite nicely, and maintained its structure throughout cooking. WAY better than any 'boca' or 'morningstar' patty I've ever come across!!
Thank you pampered Chef & Maura for inspiring these!
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup onions
1 can black beans, rinsed and mashed
bella mushrooms, 2-3 cut up
salt & pepper
1 egg white
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1. Mash the beans, folding in the other ingredients. Spice with the salsa, hot sauce, cumin, salt & pepper. Crack the egg white and mix in the bread crumbs last.
2. Form into patties. Cook in a pan or on a grill. In a pan, I cooked for a few minutes on each side, and then shut off the heat and covered with a lid and let cook a few minutes longer.
Garnish: lettuce, tomato, sesame bun, swiss cheese, etc
