The World’s Healthiest Veggie Burger Patty [V, GF]

I’m going to be honest here. I didn’t think it would actually happen.

I have been on the hunt for “the one” veggie burger for years. Years. YEARS! Do you know how many beans, veggies, and other random mix-ins I’d rather not talk about have been wasted in this process? On second thought… don’t tell me. I don’t want to know.

You have to understand how big this is. It’s monumental really. LIke, seriously. They should erect a monument to this burger and I should be the one to cut the red ribbon.(I’ve always wanted to hold those big scissors!) This is big enough for me to say “like”. And I never say like. Except when I do. Which is not often. Like, really.

But there is a word I throw around even more seldom than like, and that word would be ultimate. I say it when I mean it. If a recipe doesn’t rock your socks off, I’m not going to call it ultimate. If I’m still wearing socks at the end of the meal, then I don’t call it ultimate! (Kids, don’t try this at home.)

You know the expression “when pigs fly”? Yeah, I haven’t used it. You know why? I’ve been using “when I find the ultimate veggie burger” instead because it was even less likely.

Folks, I am looking for a veggie burger that is vegan, gluten free, grain free, LOW CARB, and doesn’t taste like the socks it rocked off. And I found it.

Not only do these miraculous patties of joy meet all my criteria, they are also endlessly customizable to whatever you want. Add in different veggies, beans, flavors… you have no excuse not to make these because they adapt to whatever you have on hand. So actually… you should go make these now.

Wait, did I just see a pig fly by?

The World’s Healthiest Veggie Burger Patty

Serves

2

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chickpeas prepared using the Low Calorie Beans Method (You can use canned beans instead. Perhaps another type of bean would work too?)
  • 3/4 cup veggies, fresh or frozen and defrosted (see note above)
  • 2 Tablespoons chickpea flour
  • 1 egg white or 1 1/2 teaspoons egg replacer plus 2 Tablespoons water
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. In a food processor, combine all ingredients and pulse until blended (but not completely pureed; you still want the burgers to have some texture).
  2. Heat a greased or nonstick sprayed skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Spoon half the chickpea mixture onto the pan and spread it out with the back of a spoon to form a patty shape. Repeat with the other half of the chickpea mixture.
  4. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until golden, and flip.
  5. Cook on the other side for a few more minutes or until golden and beautiful then turn off the heat, transfer to a plate, and devour.

Notes

One of the great things about these veggie burgers is that they are completely customizable to what you want/like/ have on hand. This recipe calls for 3/4 cup of veggies, but the sky is the limit to what those could be. You can use veggies that are fresh or frozen and defrosted (measure after defrosting). You can also use a mixture of veggies totaling to 3/4 cup. Let your imagination (and your taste buds) run wild!

I make this without the eggs and when it's done I pitch it in the trash, fry the eggs with a few slices of bacon, add a pinch of salt and pepper, serve it with wheat toast and butter and it is awesome!

Hili Puro...I am a vegan. If the problem is so important than the proactive thing to do is notify the website that there is an error, not get up in arms and threaten to quit the website and post a bunch of emotional comments, that accomplishes nothing. If you really are concerned about a recipe calling for the use of egg whites you contact the source and ask to have the recipe ammended, you know unless you just like to get on fb blow off steam.

Dude chill out. He said \'or egg replacer". He was being flexible for those who are vegetarian, by offering them an option.

I read before posting. This clown said he wanted a veggie burger that was vegan. Why even mention egg whites in the recipe?
