Root Veggie Burgers


Ingredients:

  • 1 Leek
  • 3-4 Medium carrots
  • 2 Parsnips
  • 1 small spicy green pepper
  • 1 cooked mashed white potato
  • 2 cups frozen green peas
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1 can or 2 cups pre-cooked red kidney beans
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • Black pepper
  • Coriander
  • Cumin
  • Curry

 

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Puree potato, leek, pepper, garlic and leek in the food processor and then transfer to a large mixing bowl. Use a grater or grating attachment to process the carrots and parsnips. Mix all remaining ingredients into mixing bowl. Additional flour may be needed to create a solid enough texture for patties to stick together.

Using clean hands, create palm size patties and place on a nonstick baking pan or sheet. Bake for 45 -60 minutes or until golden brown and slightly firm. (The patties will still be moist and soft in the center)

Makes about 16 patties.

Tips:
Serve on a sprouted tortilla or bread with hummus, hot sauce, and kale for a delicious sandwich!
