Veggie Burgers


These burgers are my niece's recipe, so so good I actually would prefer these as much as a regular burger. They are baked not fried and have loads of wonderful flavor. One recipe makes about 8 patties depending on how large you make them. My niece got the recipe from a book written by Oh She Glows. 

  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup of warm water
  • 1 15 oz can of black beans (425g) drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup carrot or sweet potato, grated
  • 1/3 cup parsley or cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 3/4 cup gluten free oats
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon each of chili powder, cumin and dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl mix the flaxseed and water and let sit for 10 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  3. In a large bowl mash the black beans into a paste leaving a few whole for texture. 
  4. Stir in the remaining seasonings and flax egg. 
  5. Adjust seasonings to taste. 
  6. Divide the mixture into 8 portions and with wet hands tightly pack the into patties. 
  7. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, flip and bake another 15 -20 minutes. An alternative would be to grill them for the final 15 minutes instead of baking them. 
  8. Serve on a crusty bun (gluten free if necessary, and top with your favorite conditments. Absolutely delicious. Really, trust me! 
