Blogging Marathon# 50: Week 1/ Day 2 Theme: American Sandwiches Dish: Veggie Burger Sandwich Homemade Veggie burgers have a bad rap -- they are flavorless and have a very high tendency to fall apart while cooking. There are quite a few good quality frozen veggie burgers but most of them are soy based and have long list of unnecessary ingredients with very complicated spellings. There are a ton of recipes for veggie burger recipes on the Internet and after going through a number of recipes I found this recipe by Guy Fieri on the Food Network site.

  • cup almond meal (flakes - (optional))
  • 1 tbsp cilantro (- finely chopped)
  • 1 egg ((or use 1tbsp egg replacer whisked with 3tbsp of water))

  1. Heat 1tbsp olive oil in a saute pan, add the onions, garlic, jalapeno, red pepper and spinach. Saute till onions are translucent and the veggies are crisp tender. Finally add the chopped walnuts and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove and cool.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the beans leaving a few whole for texture. Add the cooled veggies, ½cup of oats, bread crumbs and all of the dry spices. Season with salt & pepper and mix well.
  3. Add the egg and bring the mixture together to form 4~6 patties. Add more oats if the mixture looks too wet. I was able to make 5 medium size patties.** Place them on a baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or freeze them for later use.
  4. When ready to make burgers, heat 1tbsp olive oil in a saute pan, gently place the burgers and cook for 2~3 minutes per side or until crispy on top and cooked through.
  5. Serve immediately over burger buns with all your favorite toppings.
