This is really quite good. I fooled my entire family. They swore it was meat. I browned them really well. I'm not a vegetarian, but continue to make it. I use walnuts, rice, miso, and soy sauce as the combination among the choices. I have also put in teriyaki and it was great. Sorry about the nutrition information not working with all of the choices! Enjoy :)
- 1 medium onion
- 1 cup raw walnuts or 1 cup raw pecans or 1 cup raw almonds or 1 cup raw cashews or 1 cup raw other nuts
- 1 cup cooked short-grain white rice or 1 cup cooked short-grain brown rice or 1 cup raw rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons miso or 2 tablespoons ketchup or 2 tablespoons tomato paste or 2 tablespoons nut butter or 2 tablespoons tahini
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons neutral oil (for frying)
- soy sauce or stock or wine or water, whatever
Directions See How It's Made
- Grind onion in food processor.
- Add nuts and oats, pulse to chop.
- Add everything but the oil and process more, but not too finely.
- Add liquid as needed. Mixture should be moist but not loose.
- Let mixture rest a few minutes then shape into 4 burgers. (This can be refrigerated for up to a day, but be sure to bring it up to room temperature before cooking or they'll fall apart when you cook them.)
- Put oil in a nonstick skillet and turn fire to medium.
- When hot, add burgers.
- Cook 5 mins each side or until browned. Do not poke at them or they will fall apart.
- Lower heat a bit and cook another 3-4 mins so that they firm up.
- Serve on buns as you like. Chutney is suggested. I'm a blue cheese lover myself. Voila!
