Veggie Burger Recipe

A recipe for flavorful, very filling veggie burgers. Their flavor reminds me of falafel, but unlike falafel, these veggie burgers are not deep-fried. Serve alone with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt (spice it up by mixing a teaspoon of hot sauce in 1/4 cup Greek yogurt), or serve in a bun.

Yield: 8 veggie burgers
  • 1 medium onion, quartered
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. Place onion in food processor bowl. Process briefly to chop.
