Back in the day I used to be vegan. Well, fist I was vegetarian THEN vegan then vegetarian again. There were a lot of things I loved about it but veggie burgers were high on the list
Maybe the top of the list, who knows?
The thing is that they are expensive to buy. I used to get the mix, which is a little more affordable, but still the cost bothered me and I could never get the flavor just the way I liked.
What to do?
Yeah, I came up with my own. Once you pan fry one of these (do not put it on the grill!) and put it on a homemade hamburger bun with catsup, mustard, pickles, tomato, lettuce, and onions you will be amazed at how addictive it is. I won’t say that it is just like a hamburger; it’s not. It is yummy on its own, though, and will really help stretch that grocery budget.
You can easily adjust the ingredients to make it gluten free or allergy friendly. Just substitute with other similar ingredients in the same proportions. Keep the mix in a tightly covered jar in a cool dry place.
You can make up a batch of the mix and use it as needed. It takes less than 20 minutes to make and is low fat with plenty of healthy whole grains and fiber. Add a slice of pepper jack cheese to it for hamburger perfection.
