TopThe Original Veggie-Burger: Falafel

[Vegetarian Burgers] [Vegetarian Kebabs] [Vegetarian] [Healthy] [Lee's Recipes]

One way to make a veggie burger is to make, falafel, but, instead of a round ball, form the batter into a small patty. Then, you don't have to deep-fry it. You can pan-fry in a small amount of oil. No need to buy those falafel mixes, either. Try making falafels once and you will be hooked! Feel free to experiment with adding other ingredients, such as mint, fresh oregano, peppers, and onions. The best falafel is made without flour or baking powder, just chickpeas and not much else.

Yield: 8 servings 30 min 15 min prep

Ingredients

4 cups chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
4 tablespoons tahini (sesame butter)
1/3 cup minced flat leaf parsley (optional)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons curry powder
2 eggs
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil, to fry

Directions

Drain and rinse the chickpeas (if they are canned, 4 cups = 2 cans) and put them, along with all the other ingredients, in a blender or food processor. (The paste needs to be thick enough to hold up as a patty, so if you have to use less liquid, that's okay.) Pulse, scraping down the side of the bowl, to form a coarse paste. Scrape the paste into a bowl.
In a nonstick frying pan, heat the olive oil. Scoop a couple of tablespoons of the falafel mixture into your hands and smooth down to form a small patty (larger patties can be too crumbly--small is better). Place a few patties in the pan and fry in small batches, turning halfway through cooking, until browned and crisp and cooked through. Drain on paper towels and serve with tahini sauce (tahini, garlic, salt, olive oil, lemon juice, water). Also delicious cold in a pita sandwich with cucumbers and tomatoes.

TopHouston's Veggie Burger

[Vegetarian Burgers] [Vegetarian Kebabs] [Vegetarian] [Healthy] [Lee's Recipes]

Yield: 4 servings 30 min 20 min prep

Ingredients

4 tablespoons hickory flavored barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon molasses
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 tablespoon oat bran
2 tablespoons onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon canned beets, finely chopped
1 teaspoon beet juice
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 egg white
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 slices monterey jack cheese (optional)

Directions

Stir together barbecue sauce and molasses. Set aside. (Some comments out on the 'net suggest perhaps this should actually be Honey, Soy Sauce, Molasses, and Hoisin.).
In a large bowl, mash beans. Stir in 3 tablespoons of the barbecue mixture, rice, oat bran, onions, beets, juice, spices, jalapenos, and egg white.
Form into 4 equal patties. Brush with (or dunk into) barbecue mixture. (Some comments on the 'net suggest that Houston's leaves them to sit in this mixture until they are cooked to order.).
Heat olive oil in a cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook patties for 2 minutes on one side. Turn and brush with remaining barbecue mixture. Top with cheese and cook for another 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Houston's serves with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions and mustard on a grilled, buttered bun.
