How to make homemade veggie burgers
In a large pan, melt coconut oil. Add finely diced garlic, diced onion, mushrooms, and grated carrot and let simmer on low until soft and slightly browned.
Lightly toast raw almonds and sunflower seeds in a separate pan, set them aside to cool. Once cooled, grind the almonds and sunflower seeds in a nut and seed grinder.
Use a large bowl to combine slightly mashed black beans with the cooked quinoa, oats, flour, parsley, tamari, spices and ground almonds, and sunflower seeds.
Mix ingredients with your hands, then individually form into patties. Add in some extra flour or an egg to help bind ingredients to help bind the black bean and quinoa burgers if you need to.
Fry up in a pan over medium heat with coconut oil until golden brown on each side.
Serve the mushroom quinoa burgers with baked sweet potato and sauteed asparagus and broccoli in butter seasoned with rock salt and cracked pepper for a gluten-free healthy dinner.
Or enjoy them on a bun or in a lettuce wrap with ketchup and mustard. I often eat these vegan black bean quinoa burgers on a slice of toasted gluten-free bread with pickles, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, and mustard. Mmm, so good!
Freeze any extra homemade veggie burgers patties uncooked in freezer bags, then unfreeze as needed for future meals.
