Veggie Burger Recipe

I have been cooking for a friend who is undergoing chemo treatments. She eats chicken and fish and all things veggie. I made these delicious veggies burgers for her yesterday, well we ate them too! This is the best recipe for veggie burgers, I have found so far, and it is from Whitewater Cooks. I guess I am obsessed with this cookbook since I got it for Christmas, but every recipe I have cooked from it, is fabulous! This book is definitely a run out and buy at once kind of cookbook!

Whitewater Veggie Burgers

1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. cumin
1 1/2 tbsp. chili powder
1-19 oz can black beans, rinsed, drained and roughly pureed
1 tsp. oregano
1/4 cup parsley, chopped (or cilantro... yuck)
2 tbsp. sesame oil
1/2 cup almonds, roasted and chopped
1 cup sunflower seeds, roasted and chopped
3 cups fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup soy sauce
5 eggs
2 cups carrots, grated
2 cups oats
flour for dredging
2 tbsp. vegetable oil

In a large skillet, saute onions and garlic in oil. Place in a large mixing bowl and let it cool a little. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well and shape into patties. Dredge lightly in flour. Heat vegetable oil in a large pan to brown the burgers on both sides, you may need to do this in batches with more oil.

Serve on your favourite buns with your favourite toppings!

Makes 12 burgers.

I made these tonight and they were absolutely delicious! I prefer them over normal non-vegetarian burgers. Thank you for posting the recipe.
