Yum. I was just noticing that I have not had enough (or any) carrots lately. Thanks for the hummus recipe. It will be put to good use this weekend.

My pleasure, and hers is excellent side dish for the carrot patties posted... Hummus is great with most things and this one has an extra twist of carrots:

Petalia: I guess "Burger" will give people an idea of what it is, but i guess you could make it into falafel type balls if you want... as long as it's fried or baked to make them sit together.

Steam the beets a few minutes, then marinate them in vinegar a week. Drain (but keep the red vinegar, surely useful for other adventures!), then put in a blender with a bit of your favourite sweetener and some salt. Adjust water/vinegar until you get the ketchup consistency you want.

Funnily enough I had burgers last night, free of evil coriander. Now that I have a 'soy' milk machine I have lots of okara so that's the base. I say 'soy' because the grindings are usually a mix of almonds, coconut, rice, peanuts, etc., i.e. whatever I threw in the milk mix. Then grated carrot, freshly shelled peas, powdered vegetable stock, spring onions and rolled oats, none of them cooked just chuck it in a bowl. Quick stir, ball it up and it's probably only a 15 minute job to get these ready and they practically cook themselves while I'm cleaning up. Laughing all the way to the sink.
Usually I have my burgers in lettuce buns with a slice of Mex-pickled red onion, beetroot ketchup and some benchtop-grown sprouts. It doesn't seem as 'dry' as Petalia makes it sound though, as burgers are the standard-bearer of the fast food industry, there is a bit of baggage there. To me it's a makeover challenge. I don't like bread that much so the lettuce bun is just a (the larger the better) lettuce leaf folded over a few times until it's a bread-thickness wad.

I can understand your sentiments, Petalia. I think a lot of folks miss burgers and the like so they like these kind of recipes. Since standard burgers and loaves are also brown and uninspiring looking I don't think most mind that in a veggie burger. For myself, I don't like the process of shaping patties and all that mess. And having to then also make a side dish ( I'm all about stews and casseroles). A lot of work. But the family really likes them so I do periodically make them (and make extra to freeze for a later time).

This post has brought up for me a whole (and unexpected) confusion? pondering? dilemma? about the whole concept of eating 'burgers' and 'loaves'. Since participating with SP, I see many, many comments and recipes about these foodstuffs. They are completely foreign to me. They were never foods included in my childhood. I believe I was given a vegetable burger at some function (in my adult life) once but I was too nervous to eat it. This recipe got me thinking because, I believe, of it's unusual ingredients. I imagine those flavors, I enjoy imagining those flavors, yet when I get to the part of the recipe about the process of creating a burger, I am lost and uninterested. Burgers and loaves, I think, are mostly brown. There is so much cooking, so much transformation of the ingredients going on, that perhaps I get lost there. I don't know. Certain recipes, including this one, when reading the ingredients list, I am attracted. Yet I imagine the end result of a long cooking process and I feel dull. Other elaborate cooking, with colors, textures, complex flavors, I am often not yet able to make but I passionately love to eat. Does anyone else have difficulties with the seemingly mandatory 'burgers' and 'loaves'? Do these foods comfort? Hmm... (Sorry TEADRINKER7 for rambling all over your recipe. I quite liked the last one you shared, the lentil one (also brown and yet delicious.)

BILBY4: It's fennel SEEDS so they don't taste like the fennel plant / root, but it does have a distinct flavour, so i understand if you don't like it! :-)

Thanks for sharing; I'll give them a try emoticon

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.
