Best Veggie Burgers

There are a lot of veggie burger recipes out there, but I have to say this is the best one I’ve found. My Dad–a meat eater, even said that he likes them better than real hamburgers. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can literally use anything you have in the fridge. I got the recipe from my Mom and she makes them differently every time.

They are delicious as a traditional burger with a bun, but also very tasty without the bun! I like to make them and freeze them so I just pull a couple out of the freezer and cook them as needed. The original recipe came from the Urban Peasant cooking show.

So here’s approximately what you’ll need:
2 cups walnuts or pecans
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 package of Spinach (I like fresh but you can also use frozen just be sure to drain it well)
1 can kidney beans or chickpeas
1 bunch green onions
2 cups baby carrots
Garlic to taste
2 eggs  (or can also add some mayonnaise or sticky rice to help it all stick together)

Begin by blending all ingredients in the food processor.

Mix well.

Add eggs and/or mayonnaise.

Form into patties and grill, broil or pop in the toaster oven!

Serve with or without a bun.
