veggie burgers

Flavorful, very filling veggie burgers. The flavor is somewhat similar to the flavor of falafel, but unlike falafel, these veggie burgers are not deep-fried. Serve alone with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, or in a bun as you would a meat burger.

Makes 8 burgers
New quantity:

Total time: 30 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients
1 medium onion, quartered
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1 (15oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
3 large eggs
1/4 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups quick cooking oats
4 tablespoons olive oil

Directions
1. Place onion in food processor bowl. Process briefly to chop. Add carrots, cilantro and beans. Process briefly, just until blended. Add eggs, yogurt, salt, cumin, garlic and cayenne. Again process briefly. Add oats and process one final time, just until incorporated.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large, 12 to 14-inch skillet over medium heat, about 4 minutes. Spoon mixture out of the food processor bowl with a 1/2-cup measuring cup per burger. Transfer to hot oil and gently flatten with a spatula. Cook 4 burgers at a time, 5-7 minutes on each side, until deep golden brown, adding the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil between the two batches.
