Veggie Burgers

Veggie Burgers
Makes 4-5 patties

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons diced red onion
2 tablespoons diced red bell peppers
1 teaspoon diced jalapeno- if you like spicy put the whole Jalapeno in!
1 1/2 tablespoons diced garlic
1/2 minced carrot or just grate the carrot with a cheese grater.
4 ounces black beans, drained
4 ounces chickpeas, drained
4 ounces white beans, drained
6 ounces rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves
1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2-teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground sage
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
1 egg

In a medium saute pan over medium high heat add 1-ounce olive oil and all raw vegetables except beans. Remove and cool.
Add veggies to beans and mix thoroughly. I suggest mashing the beans a little with your hands in a bowl so the burgers come together better.  Add all dry ingredients along with the egg. Thoroughly mix all ingredients and form into 4 patties, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. This helps them come together better when you form them.

In saute pan add some non-stick cooking spray, and cook patties 2 to 3 minutes per side. 

Suggestion: I like to buy nice soft sandwich buns and top the burger with a slice of pepper jack cheese and a few slices of avocado and lettuce.

  1. Yum!!! You read my mind! I was at Trader Joe's today in the produce section thinking how great it would be to make my own veggie burgers but I had no idea what to get for them! I am totally going to make these this weekend! Thanks! :)
