Once in a while I like to eat burgers and this is a result of that craving and also because there were too many veggies at home!
This is my version of a healthy burger. Of course you can go ahead and buy the frozen ones from the store but if you're crazy enough like me you'll like these better.
Any kind of vegetables. It's better to use a few of the starchy veggies so they all hold together.
Chilli Flakes / Red Chilli Powder
1/2 cup soy granules if you like
Steam all the veggies and mash them up.
Chop up the onion and garlic. Sauté them with the herbs and a little bit of water or oil till the onions are caramelized or dark brown.
Soak the soy granules for 5 minutes in some water. Once the veggies are steamed, you can grate
them up or mash them all together. Drain the soy granules off the excess water and mix them with the vegetables. Add the onions, herbs of your choice, the red chilli, salt and mix it well. It's best to use your hands for this.
Make them into your burger patty shapes and put them in a plate with some rice flour. Cover up them up.
In a flat frying pan, put about 2 teaspoons of oil. Once hot, start putting the patties in.
Cook both sides till dark brown like in the picture on the left.
Have it with some burger bread, salad leaves, diced tomatoes, cucumbers and onions, with some mustard and pepper on top.
I put it on white bread (picture on the right) with vegetables and
grilled it all together.
Yes that is a cucumber, almost the size of the patty! It's an organic cucumber grown on the outskirts of Mumbai.
