meaty meatless burgers

veg burger


Most of my food post are and will be quick easy to make healthy meals, snacks and drinks.  This one takes a bit more effort, but well worth it if you’re a fan of veggie burgers.  Here’s the recipe…

Yield: 4 burgers

Using a food processor to individually blend ingredients then get your hands dirty and mix it all together (unless your food processor can handle mixing it all at once).

1 cup of raw sunflower seeds

1/2 cup of raw almonds

1/2 cup of walnuts

1/2 cup yellow sweet onion

1/2 cup cooked pinto beans (black beans would be fine too)

1/2 cup cooked brown rice (quinoa might be good too)

1/2 cup non dairy cheese (I use Daiya)

2 tablespoons of Braggs Amino Acids

2 tablespoons cup Soy Sauce or Tamari

1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

1 tsp fresh garlic

After blending, form patties.  Then heat pan with small amount of olive oil, pan sear and cover to heat thoroughly over, probably 10 minutes each side.  Add your favorite fixings and enjoy guilt free.  I topped with spinach, avocado, organic ketchup and pickles of course:) and used Udi’s Gluten Free Bread.  Yum!

  1. Hi Ted,
    Here is my slow cooker recipe for kale,
    One large yellow onion
    One clove garlic
    Tbsp olive oil
    Six russet potatoes peeled or not
    Two cans cannellini beans rinsed
    Large bag of kale, organic will do ,washed and chopped
    Two boxes of organic vegetable broth
    Tblsp of red pepper flakes
    Salt and pepper

    Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil, add to slow cooker first,top with potatoes and beans ,pour on the broth then pile on as much kale as you can squeeze in to your crock pot ( juice the rest!)
    Cook all day while you are lying on the beach or cruising on your boat,or at work. Enjoy with your favorite bread.
    I make this quite often and it last for days.

    This should warm you up on a cold day. Please share.

    • This looks awesome Mike. You know I’m all about Beans & Greens!!!
      I know you’re nice and warm down in Key West, but we’re getting ready for snow here in RVA. May have to try this one out, thanks for sharing!
