Hand-held food season is upon us and you need a burger fix… in the way of these meaty vegan burgers.
I feel ya.
With these BBBBB’s the flavours are tasty, the texture is meaty, and the creation is simple.
Slap on some vegan cheese for the last few minutes of cookin’ (I find the meltier ones are VioLife, Sheese Cheese, Chao or Gusta Americano all found at Vegan Supply), and you’re well on your way to burger town.
These work best on the frying pan with a smidgin’ of avo oil. They also survive on the barby – just make sure you oil up the grill before you throw them on.
What are you waiting for? Call up some buds, bring home some vegan buns and cook up some bangin’ burgs!
Bangin’ Barley Black Bean Burgers
1 cup barley (pre-cooked)
1 can black beans (rinsed)
1 flax egg (mix 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water, let sit 5 minutes)
1 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp Bragg’s liquid aminos
1.5 tsp paprika
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp miso paste
- Cheezy Sunflower Sauce
1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked (overnight or in hot water for 30 minutes)
3/4 cup water
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/8 cup nutritional yeast (nooch)
1 clove garlic
pinch of salt
- Burger Building Ingredients:
Bun or lettuce wrap
Red onion, sliced
Vegan Cheese (like Violife, Chao, Gusta, Sheese… all found online at Vegan Supply)
- Add all ingredients to your food processor and pulse until blended, but still with some chunky texture
- Turn your pan onto medium heat, add 1 tsp of avocado or coconut oil (or crank your BBQ to medium, and oil the grill)
- Grill or fry each burger 4 minutes per side. Add vegan cheese to the burger during the last couple of minutes with the lid on (melty goodness)
- While burgers are cookin’, put all Cheezy Sunflower Sauce ingredients into a small food processor and blend until smooth.
- Build your burger! Lettuce bun or bread bun + romaine + red onion + dijon + sunflower sauce (or this garlic cream sauce) + tomato + pickles.
- Time does not include the cooking of the barley, or soaking the sunflower seeds.
