homemade veggie burger recipies?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
anyone have a good recipe for homemade veggie burgers? ideally i am looking for something with beans, maybe rice and nuts... no tofu though, and a little bit of cheese would be ok, but not as a substantial ingredient.

i'd like to make up a bunch and freeze for lunches.

thanks!

1.25 C. split peas
3 C. water
1 egg
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
.5 C. chopped onion
.5 tsp. thyme
1.5 tsp. parsley flakes
.5 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. gravy browner (I leave this out)
1 tsp. salt
.25 tsp. pepper
1 C. cooked brown rice
.25 C. flour
1.5 C. dry bread crumbs

Cook peas until tender. Drain. Mix everything else in blender first, then add peas and blend well. Put in bowl and add flour and bread crumbs. Stir a little. Let it sit about 10-15 mins. Shape into patties, dip in flour to coat, and fry 'em up. Yummy!

(I'm not sure how they freeze.)

Bean Burgers:

1/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 cups red or pink canned beans
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 tbsp. ketchup
1 tbsp. wheat germ or oatmeal

Chop the seeds up first. Mix in the remaining ingredients and form patties. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool until you can pick up each patty to smoosh and reform it firmly in your hands. Then cook for another 15 minutes on each side.

Then you can wrap individually and freeze. I like this recipe because it has just a few ingredients. You could always use fresh beans you have cooked. Hope you like this one!

question for abac

abac,

I have a question about the 3 C water. Is that what you cook the split peas in or is that part of the ingredients put in the blender? Actually, I have a second question. How long should I expect to cook the split peas before they're soft?

TIA

RecipeZaar has a bunch of veggie burger recipes that sound tasty, but I haven't had a chance to test any yet.
