Hi dollies <3
How are you all doing?
Do you know the feeling of craving for a juicy,unhealthy burger?Today my cravings were beyond crazy and unbearable,but when the only meat in your fridge/freezer is a slice of ham,there is nothing much you can do.
Yes of course! Veggie burger!You can choose from tons of fresh or frozen vegetables,leftovers or even canned corn.
For my cabbage,broccoli,carrot,bell pepper,celery,okra potato-veggie burger patties I used:
1/4 small cabbage head
1/4 bell pepper
10 okras (frozen)
a hand full of broccoli (frozen)
1 small celery stick
instant potato mash powder/flakes
salt pepper,paprika,oregano,chili powder
breadcrumbs or crushed cornflakes
oil to fry
Defrost the frozen veggies by putting them out of the freezer 3 hours prior to the preparation or defrost in the microwave.Coarsely chop all the vegetables and put them in the blender to blend them until finely chopped.
Add the egg and spices,be generous with the paprika.
Now keep adding instant potato mash powder until you get a shape-able consistency that is not too hard and not too soft.
Brush with water and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.To make the breadcrumbs stick better,lightly pad them in.
Fry from both sides in a non stick pan with about 3-4 tablespoons of oil.
Serve on a burger bun.
My buns are cheap briochettes from the supermarket,they look so busted *LOL*
