Aunt Esther’s Nut Burgers
You may have noticed I went for a couple weeks without posting. Life kind of got busy for a while. 🙂 I’ve been doing some volunteer work for Kansas City Make-A-Wish and for Gilda’s Club and in the middle of it all I spent a week in Atlanta.
In Atlanta I picked up a copy of The Cosmic Vegetarian Cookbook which is a book created by the Atlanta Meditation Center of SRF as a fundraiser for their new Temple. Thanks to Gary and Suzanne Werdesheim who shared this recipe, and to Aunt Esther! It is delish! I’ve adapted it slightly to add a little more veggie power. I recommend serving it with peanut and tomato stew as described in the instructions below.
You can see my photos from the Atlanta Aquarium here. The aquarium is incredible if you ever get a chance to go there.
Here are the ingredients you will need:
2 eggs, beaten
3 tbsp milk
1 cup cooking oatmeal, coarsely ground
1 cup of walnuts (or pecans or other nuts)
1/2 cup onion
Handful of spinach
1 cup of finely chopped or grated carrot
4 large mushrooms, chopped
1/2 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp whole wheat flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Sprinkle of thyme
Makes about 7 burgers.
