Veggie Burgers


Nick proudly told me he and Erin made a batch of delicious veggie burgers. He used a recipe from a guy called The Minimalist at the NYTimes. I had to try it. They turned out so good and you won't believe how easy it was.

Here's how you do it. recipe from the Minimalist:
Bean Burgers
Time: 20 minutes, with cooked beans

2 cups well-cooked white, black or red beans, or chickpeas or lentils, or 1 14-ounce can, drained
1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup rolled oats (preferably not instant)
1 tablespoon chili powder, or the spice mix of your choice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 egg
Bean-cooking liquid, stock or other liquid (wine, cream, milk, water or ketchup) if necessary
Extra virgin olive oil or neutral oil, like grapeseed or corn.

1. Combine all ingredients except liquid and oil in food processor and pulse until chunky but not puréed. If necessary, add a little liquid for a mixture that is moist but not wet. Let mixture rest for a few minutes.
2. With wet hands, shape into patties and let rest again for a few minutes. (Burger mixture or shaped burgers can be covered tightly and refrigerated for up to a day. Bring back to room temperature before cooking.) Film bottom of a large nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron skillet with oil and turn heat to medium. When hot, add patties. Cook undisturbed until browned, about 5 minutes; turn carefully with spatula and cook 3 or 4 minutes until firm and browned.
3. Serve on buns with mustard, ketchup, chutney or other toppings.

Yield: 4 servings.

If I say so myself, they were better than any veggie burger I've bought in a restaurant. Bob's your uncle!

They are good. Nick says they freeze well, too.

Yummy! I tried to make my own recipe once. It was not good. I used a cajun rub. But I will try this one next. I use the George F type grill for small things like these. Can;t wait! Thanks for the info..
