Veggie Burger Maddness

veggie burger

When shopping at my local grocery store the other day I randomly bought a bag of buglur wheat with the thought I would make some kind of veggie burger. This was a bit of a out of character thought for me as I am not a huge veggie burger person and the thought of making them has never occurred to me before either, but alas that is what happens. So tonight I made my own version of a veggie burger with bulgur wheat, potato, and chipotle.

Burger Patty

1/4 Cup Chopped Italian Parsley

1/2 Shallot Minced

3 Cloves Garlic Minced

1 Medium Russet Potato Mashed

3 Cups Cooked Bulgar Wheat

1 Chipotle in Adobo Minced and 2tsp adobo sauce

2tsp Fish Sauce*

2tsp Light Soy Sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

Burger Fixings

Bun ( I used onion)

Alfalfa Sprouts

Goat Cheese

Portabella Mushroom (for the deluxe edition)

Making the Patties

Cook the Bulgur wheat and make the mashed potato.

Mix the chopped parsley, shallot, onion, salt and pepper together. Add the mashed potato to the herb and garlic mixture.

Once the mixture is all mixed through add the bulgur wheat and chipotle pepper and adobo, mix though and add fish sauce* and soy sauce.

*Note that the fish sauce adds a nice unami flavor to the burger but you can not taste any fishy-ness.

When everything is mixed together make the patties making sure to not make them too big, they are better if a bit smaller.

Heat up a cast iron pan so it is very hot, add oil and place the patty in the pan. Let it cook on the one side until golden then flip and cook the other side until golden.


Assembling the Burgers

Toast the Bun

Put alfalfa sprouts on the bun

Place on the burger on the sprouts

Put Goat Cheese on top and Serve

For the Deluxe Edition cook the Portabella Mushroom until it has softened and is warmed through and place on top of the cheese and serve.
