Here's a great recipe for homemade veggie burgers:
  • 15 oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon dried chopped onions
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1⁄2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes 1 tablespoon Bragg (or soy sauce)
  • 1 cup cooked red quinoa
  • 1-2 tablespoons water
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. Combine the pinto beans, ground flax seeds, corn starch, dried chopped onions, garlic powder, celery seeds, paprika, cornmeal, nutritional yeast flakes, and Bragg (or soy sauce) in a food processor. Pulse for several seconds and then use a spatula to push ingredients down from the side of the bowl. Pulse again for several seconds. Repeat this process until the ingredients are well combined.
  2. Add the cooked red quinoa and pulse again for a few seconds.
  3. If the mixture feels sticky enough to hold together in patties, then you're ready. If it feels dry, add 1 to 3 tablespoons of water and pulse for a second or two. Form 8 patties.
  4. Place a skillet over medium heat and spray with vegetable spray. Add the burgers. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of the uncooked patties. Cook the patties until browned, about 5 minutes on each side. Repeat until all the patios are done. Place cooked patties in the toaster oven or oven on low heat to keep warm while getting the rest of the burger ingredients assembled.
