Vegan Patties

Veggie burgers 001 Veggie burgers 002
These are the raw before cooking. { With my tomato peel and fresh picked basil leaf}
This is vegan (oil and egg free)
vegetable broth/cooking wine, for sauteing about 1 cup
1cup beans any kind mashed
1 cup diced mushrooms (I use shitake)
1 cup diced eggplant
1 cup diced  onion
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup diced red/green pepper mixed
1 cup each Shredded zucchini and summer squash
1 cup diced tomatoes    1 Tbsp tomato paste
3 Tbsp hot wine or stock per 1 Tbsp flax seed let this sit while you sautee {equals 1 egg}
1Tbsp garlic, minced (I love garlic so you may wanna adjust this. )
1 tsp dried thyme  1tsp. oregano (my home grown spicy kind is great)  1 Tbsp dried basil    1 Tbsp parsley
salt, to taste (or not)    1/2-1 tsp ground pepper
1 cup Ezekiel bread crumbs optional.
In a cast iron skillet on medium high heat. Once the pan is hot I put in the onion and toss it a few seconds then splash in some of the broth. Next transfer the onion out into a bowl and cover. Then do this same process with each vegetable, transferring them into the bowl when not totally cooked because they tend to continue to soften as they sit in the bowl. You may need to lower heat as needed to prevent burning. I always do the tomato last as it is very quick. Then deglaze the pan with about a 1/4 cup of liquid wine or stock Add garlic, tomato paste and stir then transfer to bowl. Add seasoning into bowl and the flax seed mixture. blend all together and pattie them up. I do not fry I bake them in a 400 degree oven for around 5 minutes each side. Then they can be frozen. Once baked they can be grilled about 2 minutes each side or microwaved about a minute and a half. Both these times depend on your machine. But they are fully cooked already so really just to warm.

This is so much fun to play with. My husband likes them with cheese and BACON… but he likes everything with bacon…

Cooked and ready to freeze. I put wax paper between so I can take out one or more at a time.
