White Bean Veggie Burgers
Although we had our first official summer gathering last weekend, we haven’t opened the grill yet. We served these White Bean Veggie Burgers, and I pan fried them. This is a recipe I have been making since January, so I haven’t had a chance to test drive their grillability yet.
I do know this is a fantastic vegan burger with a pan fried crisp on them, though. That is my preferred method for these, served piping hot with melty cheese and a bunch of crisp pickles and greens:
Look at the broccoli! I love seeing the simple, real whole food ingredients in the burger I am eating, don’t you?
These vegan burgers are also gluten and soy free – this is a HUGE benefit for those with allergies – a meat free burger that is also gluten and soy free is a rare find.
With enough flavor on their own, these burgers are not overpowering that you can’t dress them up however you’d like. Traditional – a melty cheddar slice, mustard, ketchup and pickles, or simple – pickle and Tangy Cheese Sauce:
You might have these six ingredients on hand?
- 1 yellow onion, peeled and minced
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 1/2 cup finely diced broccoli florets
- 3 tablespoons tahini or cashew butter
- 2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained well
- 1 1/2 cups uncooked gluten free oats
- 1 teaspoon kala namak (black salt - or use sea salt)
- Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, combine onion, garlic, and broccoli. Sauté in a bit of water until veggies are soft and onions are translucent. Remove from heat, stir in tahini / cashew butter.
- Add beans to a large mixing bowl, mash using a fork or potato masher. Add skillet mixture, oats and kala namak, stirring to combine completely.
- Using hands, form mixture into patties - mine were about 4 inches across, 3/4 inch thick?
- Place patties on prepared baking sheet, bake at 350 °F for 25 minutes.
- Once cooled, these can be frozen - wrap individually in foil, then store in plastic baggie.
