BURGER MANIA--EVERYTHING TASTES BETTER AS A BUGERS!!

Every since the warmer weather hit I've been BURGER CraZY!!!  I've managed to make EVERYTHING into a burger!  This was my 1st ever attempt at a veggie burger and I nailed it but since then I've gotten a lot more creative...darn that I didn' take pics or write my other recipes:(  ...next time!!  Basically, just follow this blue print to make your own Wildly Delish BURGERS!!


1. Pick your Fav Starchy Bean/s (Fabe, White, Pinto, Lima, Lentil, Mung...)
2. Pick a fun Grain (Kumut, Barley, Quinoa, Millet, or play is safe w/ Brown RICE)
3. Pick your Spice Theme (Indian, Mexican, Italian, America, Thai, Chinese...)
4. Pick your Veggies (I love Carrots and Celery w/ everything but add in something wildly fun)
5. Buy the Basics (Veggie Broth, Bread Crumbs, Instant Oats, WW Buns, Mustard, Ketchup, Tomatoes, Garlic, Onions, Lettuce, Spinach)

use the recipe from Veganomicon for Black bean burgers, just minus the oil. They turn out fantastic. Just don't mash up the beans too much. Think whole beans vs bean burger vs refried beans - should be in the middle

They hold together better if you add a little vital wheat gluten.

LOVE THIS! Came across it while searching for gluten and soy free veggie burgers, and added it to my 4th of July post. Love all the flexibility. Thanks so much for sharing.
