So tonight, turn off the girl, chop up the veggies and get ready to enjoy this great Veggie Burger with all of your loved ones.
- Walnuts (soak for one hour)
- Olive Oil
- Ground Flax Seeds
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Nutritional Yeast
- Wash peel and cut the raw beets in chunks
- Wash and cut the carrots (equal in quantity to the amount of beets)
- Slice the Onions (not too much maybe ¼ of the amount of the beets and carrots)
- A few cloves of garlic (one or two depending on how much you like garlic)
- Place on a cookie sheet (or flat pan) sprinkle with garlic oil and put in the oven (350 degrees) Bake for about thirty minutes until tender but firm.
- Remove from oven and place all the ingredients in a bowl and add the walnuts (a little less than half the amount of beets that you used).
- Then put everything in a food processor and blend, add two tablespoons of group flax seeds, salt and pepper to taste, mix. The ground flax seeds help the burger cohere. It is OK to leave them out. You can grind them in a coffee grinder.
- That is your basic burger. Now you can form it into balls, or patties or leave scrambled. Sauté it in olive oil, to which a little garlic has been added.
- You can serve your veggie burger over rice, couscous, pasta, or put it on top of a big Portobello mushroom or a bed of greens. A generous sprinkle of nutritional yeast over the dish will give it a great cheesy taste. YUM. I love nutritional yeast. (Good source of B12).
