I was thinking about making my own veggie burgers, vegan and gluten free too. So I took:
- 1/2 cup cooked pinto beans
- 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/4 cup (roughly) tahini (sesame butter)
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- Spices, cumin, garlic, turmeric.(anything else your little heart and taste buds desire)
- Mush it together real good and form patties.
- Cook over medium heat till brown or you lose patience and want to try then out..
I fixed them , fried them in a non stick skillet. They might brown better using some oil.
Anyway, they were pretty good. I might switch up the legume, using black beans. If I used garbanzo beans, it would pretty much be a falafel.
But the idea of spending money for frozen veggie burgers is over. I can make my own.
Power To The People!
I use a pressure cooker, Fagor Lux Multicooker, to be exact. It greatly expedites the cooking of dried beans, (all types) and grains like quinoa. You don’t need one, but it sure helps.

You just gave me an awesome idea! I made really yummy 4 bean salad last night tossed in a homemade dressing. My husband won’t touch beans of any kind. He’s a seriously finicky eater. *grumbling* When I’ve eaten as much I can bare in this form, turn them into patties or a deep fried ball of deliciousness. Thank you for the idea!
Glad to help. I was surprised at how easy it was. The variants are limitless.
