Best Veggie Burger Recipe Ever

 

 

 

 

I like veggie burgers but I’m not a fan of packaged ones since they’re usually packed with too much sodium and other random ingredients that I wouldn’t normally cook with.  I was psyched when I found Kris Carr’s recipe in the back of Crazy Sexy Diet for this one (the name alone is mouth watering)-compliments of Garden Cafe in Woodstock, NY.

SOUTHWEST BLACK BEAN AND ROASTED SWEET POTATO BURGER

(Makes 10 patties-I like to make the whole recipe and freeze some)

2 cups cooked black beans, smashed

Sweet potatoes to qual 2 cups when peeled and cut into small cubes

2 teaspoons olive oil

Salt (preferably sea salt)

3 ounces yellow onion-diced

2 teaspoons garlic

3 tablespoons tamari

2 teaspoons ground cumin

pepper

7 oz cooked brown rice

1 1/2 teaspoons vegetarian worcestershire sauce (I skipped this in mine & was still delish)

1 oz cornmeal (+ 1 oz for dredging)

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees

*Place the mashed black beans in a bowl.  Peal and cut the sweet potatoes, dropping them in cold water as you cut them.  Drain well and toss with olive oil and sea salt.  Spread them out in an even layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet.  Roast in the oven for 25-30 mins or until tender.  Toss occassoinally.

*Heat a bit of olive oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat.  Brown onions and garlic.  Add onions to the bowl of beans, stir in tamari, cumin and salt/pepper to taste.  Add the cooked rice, sweet potatoes, Worcestershire sauce and 1 oz of cornmeal.  Mix well.

*Form into 4 1/2oz patties (you can also eye ball this) and dredge lightly in the remaining 1 oz of cornmeal.  Heat a cast iron (again-I used a regular one, gotta improvise sometimes), over medium heat and add more olive oil or cooking spray-brown lightly on each side.  Place on baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

Serve w/ salsa, guacamole or your favorite salad.
