Veggie Burgers, Veggie Steaks, Veggie Sausages, the Lot!

Recipe by Bunny Mazonas
READY IN: 24hrs 30mins
SERVES: 8-12
YIELD: 12 patties




  • Add butter beans to a pan, and cover with boiling water, with an inch of water to spare. Leave to soak 24 hours. (If in a rush, buy canned beans and use 2-3x quantity).
  • Add onions and garlic to a food blender and pulse until finely chopped. Add beans and pulse again for 10-20 seconds. Add other vegetables, nuts, etc and pulse until thoroughly mixed.
  • Add salt and chicken stock and stir thoroughly.
  • Fold in flour until mixture becomes a thick, sticky dough.
  • To cook, form into 12-15 patties, of heaped tablespoon size. Alternately, roll into 2 large loaves. For the smaller patties, fry or grill these in a griddle until golden brown and firm. For larger loaves, bake or roast until cooked through. For "sausages", roll into sausage shapes and shallow fry, turning regularly.
  • When using "meat" for food, the patties/loaves can be sliced into slivers for stir fries, chopped, sliced for sandwiches, thick-cut and fried as steaks, or slapped between buns to make "burgers".
