This Organic burger gives you the feeling you are eating meat… for all you meat lovers out there… and it looks red inside like a real burger.
This recipe makes about 12 burgers that you can freeze for use later… but they never last long.
1 1/2 – Cups of Cooked Organic Garbanzo Beans
1 1/2 – Cups of Cooked Organic Black Beans
3 – Cups of Organic Brown Rice Cooked with Some Salt-Free Organic Veggie Broth
6 – Cloves of Organic Garlic Minced
2 – Tablespoon of Organic – No Sodium Chili Powder
1 – Large Cooked Organic Red Beet – Chopped
2 – Tablespoons of Organic Brown Rice Flour
2 – Teaspoons Xanthine Gum – makes everything stay together
1 – Cup of Organic Moringa Leaves – Dried or Fresh – You can substitute parsley if you like.
(Optional) – 3 Tablespoons – Organic BBQ sauce that is low fat and low sodium – or your favorite steak sauce.
(Optional) – 1 Cup of Crushed Organic Almonds – For a Little More Protein
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Use a none stick ceramic pan to brown your burger
1 – Toasted Organic Whole Grain – Organic Wheat Free and Gluten Free Hamburger Bun.
1 – Slice of Organic Tomato
1 or 2 – Organic Lettuce Leaves
Organic Condiments of your choice
Add all the ingredients except the bun, tomato, condiments, and lettuce to a large bowl and use your hands to mash everything together. Now reserve 2 cups of the mixture. Next, take the remaining mixture and place it in a food processor, processing until smooth or use a heavy duty blender. Now combine the reserved mixture back with the processed mixture and mix well.
Make your burger patties from about 1/3 pound of the mixture.
Take a none stick ceramic pan and brown your burgers. When brown in the edges remove from pan and place on a toasted bun… garnish with lettuce and tomato and whatever else you like… pickles, relish, you choose– No Cheese.
PS — I named this burger after our little dog “Higo” (Spanish for Fig) who has a lot of personality… so much so that I nick named her “Bubba”… she’s so much fun.
