Do you care for some veggie patties?

Monday, September 30, 2013



Today I've made my very own veggie burger. I was going to make black bean burger.But when I started to cook I found out I didn't have any caned black bean, and for that reason, I ended up making Chickpea patties. I have never made any type of veggie burger and this was my very first one. But I am glad to say it turns out great! (*^^*) I wanted to omit the oil as much as passible, so I used little bit of Tahini instead. And didn't want to fly so I put it in oven and baked at 375 for about 50 min. It turns out crispy and not oily. It tasted more like falafel then to say a burger. But it was yummy. I ate with a large salad and Joseph's Oats, flax whole grain pita bread which only has 60 calorie for one whole pita. I felt like Yay me! For healthy low calorie meal that I enjoyed. Even my DH (not vegetarian) liked it. It was very first time he had a "no meat at all" vegetarian meal tonight. Yay!! (*^^*) I used a egg, but who want it make that to vegan patties, you can omit egg and add some ground flax seeds and bit of water.

*Thanks for stopping by my dear spark friends. Have a wonderful and healthy week.(*^^*)

    I saw the heading and had to comment--the patties look emoticon ! I usually eat Morningstar (not a vegetarian, but I try to eat very little meat), but I've been toying with the idea of making my own. Thanks so much for recipe link!

    Sounds good! I've not managed to be succesfull with bean burgers so far (must admit I've just about given up. Husband made them a while ago though and they were great. Now I must find a recipe on how to convince husband to cook more often! lol).

    I took that recipe down to try another day. I would try it tomorrow but I do not have the panko bread crumbs or onions so I will try it another day. I really love falafel so I think it will be a favorite of mine.
