Veggie Burgers – no meat does not mean no flavor!

Veggie Burger

Veggie Burgers, kind of a contradiction, because we always associate burgers with beef, pork or lamb.

These Veggie Burgers could stand tall next to any of the above meaty burgers. It is packed with crunch, flavor and not only is a delicious, but it is much cheaper than meat. You can chop and change the vegetables to what you have available, the important thing is just to try and remove all liquid from the raw veggies, because as it cooks, if not it starts steaming during cooking and the last thing you want is a soggy burger. The ingredient that brings it all together here is the butter beans. It bulks up the burgers, but also is the binding agent for these delicious burgers.

Which brings me to a very important staple you should always keep in the pantry – tins and tins of BEANS!

Butter Beans, Baked Beans, Cannelini Beans, Red Kidney Beans, Speckled Sugar Beans, Chickpeas and even lentils. You will never run out of ideas. I can whip up a bowl of these Tex Mex Beans in minutes and so can you. Who thought that a few tins of baked beans can become this wholesome pan of Cowboy Beans? Even Sunday Pork Roast can do with a can of beans of two. Stews normally takes hours, not this one.

    Which type of tomato sauce we can use in this burger?

      You can use any tomato relish, it really is your choice. My family likes a sweet/sour tang.
