Bean Burgers (They Really Are Good!)

My road to becoming vegan has had it's ups and down's, but for the most part, up's!   I like it.  I feel better, sleep better, feel like I have more energy, and I think my skin looks better.  I can honestly say that I do not have a "craving" for meat, but having a hamburger with the rest of the family would be nice, but what is a vegan girl to do?  Make one out of beans, of course!

These "burgers" came out BETTER than I expected, and really were easy.  I had leftovers, because my husband and son are fuddy duddies and would not even try one little, itty, bitty bite, so the next day I heated them up and added them to some Soba Noodles for lunch!  Double yummy!

So, here we go!




Printable Recipe {HERE}


The ingredients are:
chickpeas
oats
walnuts
onions
sriracha
soy sauce
pepper (to taste)
lemon juice
olive oil
condiments of your choice


Drain and rinse those little chickpeas.

Walnuts, so good for your brain.

Nothing like a fresh lemon.

Everything is in the mixer.

Um, yeah, it get's better.

Okay, it gets BETTER after this picture....


I am not a "meat toucher" I hate making meatloaf, or salmon patties, I just HATE the feel of that meat on my hands, well this really isn't much better...BUT I made it through the whole patty process.

Into the pan to sear and heat through.  I added some fresh ground pepper to the tops. 

Really, doesn't that look like a burger!!!

My dinner; spinach, avocado, green onion and bean burgers, fresh salsa on top!  This is the life!

One more look, yep, that's a good looking burger....
