This was a first at our house. I’ve secretly wanted to try a meatless burger for a while and finally got around to it. I know I have a few vegetarian readers out there so please leave some comments on how you make these and any tips you have. This is how my attempt went.
Oh, and I made a carrot salad/slaw to go with it…
When most of the moisture had dripped off I added a couple of slices of GF bread to the bottom of my Ninja, you could do this in a food processor too. If you are using regular bread I would only use one slice. GF bread is freakishly smaller than regular bread. I guess the manufacturers believe GF folks are all tiny with small appetites 😉
Anyway… obliterate the bread into small bits…
Then I obliterated that… I wish I had not pureed it so much. I think it would have been better to have some chunks of bean in there for texture. I guess I kinds underestimated the power of the Ninja 🙂
I then dumped the mix out on a plate to divide it into 4 parts. Meanwhile I heated a couple of tablespoons of olive oil up in a pan. I didn’t form the patties until the oil was hot and I could drop them right into the pan.
I served mine with chips and carrot salad. I dropped on a dollop of greek yogurt and a few extra scallions… not too shabby! The flavor was great but I’d love to know how anyone else makes these for future modifications.
