The Vegetarian Burger for Carnivores!
B vitamins. Served with super powered fresh spinach on a whole grain bun, this veggie burger is a cut above the rest. With that said, the slice of cheese and two slices of bacon don't seem so bad now huh.! Besides, reduced fat cheese and a bacon substitute may be exchanged, but why take all the fun out of something so good and great for you!
1 15 oz. can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 oz. can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 c. EACH grated carrot and turnip
1/4 c. quick cooking oats
1 tbsp. liquid aminos or to taste
2 tsp. flax seeds
1 tsp. sesame seeds
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 c. fresh chopped parsley
8 -12 slices thick cut Applewood bacon
olive oil for drizzling
Mash beans with a potato masher or fork until slightly broken apart, leaving some almost whole for texture.
Add remaining ingredients and drizzle with olive oil. SPST.
Stir together until evenly mixed and form into 4 to 6 patties.
Heat large saute pan over medium high heat, drizzle with olive oil and add patties, heating through and browning on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
Embellish as desired and with desired toppings. Serve on thin style whole grain buns.
