Leslie Durso & Fiona Gubelmann make vegan veggie burgers

I LOVE veggie burgers! I have made a zillion varieties. My good friend Fiona Gubelmann loves them too and wanted me to teach her how to make them. We decided to film it so you all could learn 🙂 I hope you enjoy as much as us and please subscribe to my youtube page! ps My dress is Della and our aprons are from Sugar Baby Aprons

Vegan Veggie Burgers

Serves 6

2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed

1 cup cooked brown rice

6 oz. mushrooms, chopped (I like using crimini, but any will work)

3/4 cup rolled oats, more if mix is too wet

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 red beet, grated

1 flax egg (1 tbsp. ground flax seed soaked in 3 tbsp. water for 10 minutes)

3 tbsp. smoked paprika

1 tbsp. cumin

3 tbsp. nutritional yeast

1 tsp. sea salt

In a large bowl, using your hands, mash the beans until they are about 3/4 mashed. Add in all the other ingredients and mix well. Form 6 tight patties with your hands. Either freeze, refrigerate or cook immediately. Cook in a frying pan with either coconut or olive oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with toppings like lettuce, tomato, Follow Your Heart slices, pickles, caramelized onions, and avocado.
