Simple Soybean Burgers
These burgers can be made quickly — and they're full of hearty flavor.
¼ cup tamari
3 cups cooked or canned soybeans, rinsed and drained if canned
¼ cup sunflower or other light oil
¼ tsp. ground cayenne
2 large cloves garlic, minced
½ cup grated carrots
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
½ green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 ½ cups cooked millet
2 cups quick (not instant) rolled oats
- In food processor, combine soybeans, tamari, oil, cayenne and garlic. Process until smooth, then transfer to large mixing bowl.
- Stir in remaining ingredients (except additional oil) in order listed, mixing well with each addition.
- In large skillet, heat thin layer of oil or cooking spray over medium-high heat. Scoop out about a peach-size amount of bean mixture and shape into a patty (wet hands as necessary so they don’t stick) and place each patty into hot oil. Brown on one side, then turn and brown other side 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining mixture.
