Faye HallUncategorizedLeave a Comment

OK, you have guessed, I have been in my happy place all weekend cooking and baking. I love it! One of the big challenges I am facing with a vegan diet is being prepared. When lunch time comes around, the most frustrating thing is. What the heck are we going to eat?

I made 2 types of vegan burgers. A quinoa burger and a black bean burger. The quinoa burger still needs some work. (it lacked something) but as soon as I perfect it I will let you know 🙂 They are perfect for the freezer to pop out any time we need them 🙂

First of all. If you don’t have a food processor like this. Get one. It will save you! I practice gratitude for ours every day!

  1. 2 large shallots
  2. 2 cloves of garlic (more if you like)
  3. 1/4 cup cilantro
  4. 1 can of black beans
  5. 1 cup of instant oats (acts as the binding ingredient)
  6. 1 portabllo mushroom
  7. 1 tsp cumin.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  9. 1 tablespoon of Franks Red hot (or any other hot sauce)
  10. 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  11. 1 grated zuccini
  12. 1 grated carrot

Instructions..

  1. Mince or chop onions, garlic, cilantro and mushrooms
  2. Mince or mash Black beans
  3. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and smush with your hands to mix, It will be messy so do it near a sink 🙂
  4. Form into Burger patties
  5. Place on a cookie sheet with parchment paper (avoids the need for oil)

I like them best served on butter lettuce with tomato, onion and a few slices of avocado.
