I loathe to call my creation a “BURGER” that conjures up visions of ground beef, but “KITCHEN SINK” comes to mind! I reviewed many recipes but did not have exactly what was called for. Regaining some of my confidence as a cook, I opened the fridge and pulled out left overs. Here is a breakdown of what went into what we think are delicious
Cooked Quinoa (leftover Quinoa pilaf)
About 1/2 cup each 3 cooked beans (kidney, canneli, limas)
1/2 baked sweet potato
The rest is RAW
Oat Flour (I used whole oats and made “flour” in my dry Vitamix container)
Put everything except flours in food processor and reduce to coarse texture, remove and mix in flours until manageable consistency. Form into 1-2″ thick patties.
Although I think I can make a loaf out of this, I chose to pan fry just enough to heat through, I did not want to cook the added raw vegetables too much. Burns easily, so keep heat medium and turn as soon as browned.
Cucumber Salad, (Cucumber, red onion, dill marinated in Apple Cider Vinegar) served on top of Arugula greens.
Sweet Potato baked “fries”
Top patties with avocado, tomato slice, and spirialized raw veggies.
Mustard and Ketchup (use Organic made with real sugar, not high fructose corn syrup).
I should be embarrassed to publish this without exact measurements, but I literally threw in the kitchen sink and will never make this exactly the same again.
I overcame my VEGGIE PATTY intimidation!!
Enjoy making your own, it is really not hard to do, or go to Wendy’s link I used to get a picture of Quinoa Patties! http://www.cookingquinoa.net/couscous-and-quinoa-patties-with-vegetable-yogurt-sauce
