Get Your Groove on Veggie Burgers

What you need: 

1 (15 ounce) can beans or lentils, drained and rinsed
1 cup carrot, zucchini, and/or broccoli, pureed
1 cup rolled oats
garlic powder, to taste
onion powder, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup salsa
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup cornmeal, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and lightly oil a baking sheet. Put beans or lentils in food processor until pureed, and then add to mixing bowl. Add pureed veggies.
2. Process the rolled oats in the processor to create a powdery grain. If you want your burgers to have more texture, you could skip the processing part. Add oats to mixing bowl and stir until combined evenly.
3. Add the seasonings, salsa, oil, Worcestershire, and barbecue. If it seems too wet to make patties, add cornmeal. Form into patties; I was able to form about 6 patties.
4. Salt and pepper the patty tops. Bake for 1/2 hour, flipping halfway through.
They were firm and juicy when done. I served on whole wheat bread with Dijon mustard and Vegenaise, with some baked potatoes. Get your groove on at the next burger/dog party with these healthy, tasty burgers!

This was hands down, the BEST vegan burger I have made!!! I've tried garbanzo burgers, black bean burgers, and the best of all veggie burgers from VegWeb, but this recipe is truly the best!  I used light red kidney beans, omitted the Worcestershire sauce, and used 1 small zucchini and 1 1/2 medium carrots. It did seem a little wet, so I did add some cornmeal before baking. I baked as directed. These were absolutely incredible - I topped them with some sliced tomato, dijon mustard, ketchup, and dill pickle chips. I served them with Spicy Fries. These rock!! Thanks!!


this looks good...but how much veggies should be added?

The directions say  When processed I had about a cup.  Again, this was just me estimating after I had made the burgers. I didn't really measure as I was going. I think about a cup more or less would be fine. I hope you like them! Both my husband and son liked them, which rarely happens!
