Let me begin by saying that veggie burgers are hard. Or shall I say, I’ve found that making an easy and tasty veggie burger is hard. But that said, I think I finally got it; this one’s a keeper. A shout out goes to my buddy J, for the box of quinoa she offered as first prize in a caption contest she had on Facebook.

1/2 cup quinoa, dried
1/2 cup brown lentils, dried
1 sweet potato, cooked and mashed
1 rib celery, diced
1 carrot, grated
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons mayonnaise*
1 egg*
1/4 cup dried bread crumbs
seasonings to taste
oil, for sautéing

Prepare quinoa and lentils as directed and set aside

Sauté celery, onion, carrot, and garlic

When the ingredients are prepared, combine all listed, and mix well

Season to taste with your favorite seasonings: salt, pepper, chili powder, curry, whatever you like

Chill in the fridge for about an hour
form into patties
dust lightly with flour on both sides
and fry until golden brown

Makes 8 generous burgers and freeze well.

* Vegetarians use appropriate replacements if so inclined.
