I got this recipe when I worked at Colonial Pines Inn, a bed and breakfast in Highlands, N.C. Delicious! Feel free to put in what you like, maybe some chopped mushrooms,wheat germ,seasonings, etc.
- 1 cup cooked pureed white beans, including some liquid or 1 cup beans, of your choice (try Bush's baked vegetarian beans!)
- 1 cup cooked brown rice (try yellow rice!)
- 1⁄2 cup uncooked quaker multigrain cereal (or oats)
- 1 cup cornbread stuffing mix (Pepperidge Farm is good)
- 1 tablespoon parsley
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Mix ingredients all together.
- Shape into patties.
- Fry on low heat in olive oil, till each side is browned.
- Serve with lettuce and tomato and grilled onions on a bun, with your favorite toppings.
This is much better and more filling than the veggie burgers you buy at the health food store. (And lower in fat too). I actually used 1/2 cup of chickpeas and 1/2 cup of black beans. But that was the only difference. All you vegetarians out there, this should be a staple if your cookbook!
I had leftover brown rice and decided it was time to try these. Made them exactly as written, even found Pepperidge Farm cornbread stuffing. I threw my Quaker old-fashioned oats in the food processor to make the mixture blend well. Soy sauce added just enough flavor. Very tasty on wheat buns with lettuce, tomato, onion.
These were really good. I did not use the oats as I only had steel cut on hand and I wasnt sure how that would be. I also did not have stuffing mix so I used garlic flavored croutons and a packet of onion soup mix to season. I also added a couple pinches of crushed red pepper for some spice. I would love to try these with different types of beans. As it is, I tripled the recipe and put some in the freezer for quick lunches later. =) Thanks for sharing!
