Easy Vegan Burgers

These veggie burgers were a cinch to make as long as you have the handy cuisinart (food processor) that I love…. A good pulse means a lot to me! Obviously, you can do it without the food processor but if you do, you can whip these burgers up in just 5 -10 minutes. Well then you pat them into patties… but that’s the fun part, right? Plan to get all the ingredients together. Have cooked brown rice on hand….OK try it: set the kitchen timer, it’s a race, GO!

Easy Vegan Burgers

easy vegan burgers

1 med. Stalk celery

1 medium carrot

4 green onions

1 14 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained or 1 1/2 cups cooked

1 12 oz. can ro-tel (tomatoes with mild chilies), drained

1 cup cold (pre-cooked) brown rice

small bunch fresh parsley or cilantro

2 tsp. onion powder

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp. egg relacer powder (buy at a health food store – will stay on your shelf forever, handy item!)

3 Tbls. vital wheat gluten (I can even buy this at Walmart by the flours)

1 tsp. salt

Pre-heat oven to 450. Pulse the celery, carrot and green onions or dice very small. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and pulse to chop then blend to combine (Will ball up like a dough). Mix everything together and shape into ½ cup burger patties. Bake on the top rack of oven for 15 minutes, then turn over for 15 more minutes. Broil on low for 3 minutes if desired. Makes about 7 burgers that hold together and freeze well.
