Veggie Burger Recipes
These chickpea veggie burgers from the Boston Globe are ridiculously good. http://www.boston.com/lifestyle/food/...
The recipe might be behind a pay wall so here are the ingredients as published and my own directions.
2 scallions, chopped]
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 large sweet onion, coarsely chopped
3 cups canned chickpeas (from two 15-ounce cans), drained and rinsed [I don't measure just use 2 cans
1/4 cup tahini
1 medium carrot, chopped [I often skip but it does make these prettier]
1/4 cup feta cheese [I use lots more]
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro [I use parsley instead]
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
Throw everything except breadcrumbs into the food processer and process till combined. Dump into a bowl and mix in the breadcrumbs. Refrigerate at least a couple of hours during which time it will firm up and become very easy to form into patties. The recipe says it makes 8 but I make them with 1/3 cup batter and it makes more like 10 or 12 (but they are on the small side). Cook in a frying pan with a little oil for about 5 or 6 minutes a side, keeping the heat below medium. You can totally play with the recipe, I have 3 friends who also love it and none of us make it the same way. They are fantastic with guacamole and/or salsa or with a nice runny-yolked fried egg on top. They also freeze well and you can cook them from frozen, just put them in a 350 oven for a few minutes after browning to get heated all the way through.
I've only ever made veggie burgers a few times in my life.
Made a few featured in Sunset magazine a hundred years ago, liked some more than others.
I can only think of a very few ingredients too that are no doubt typical for VB those being: mushrooms, walnuts, chick peas, carrots, cornmeal.
sorry I can't help more.
