The Burger as a Bun

Liz’s 101 Burger

I have to admit that I am not as well-versed in my veggie burgers as Rhaya.  But thanks to Amanda from Pasdena, CA, who sent us a link to a recipe she loves for black lentil burgers, I stumbled upon the recipe for the burgers pictured above on the same wonderful food blog by Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Cooking.  

This ”Ultimate Veggie Burger“ is made up of fiber-rich chickpeas, eggs, onion, cilantro, micro-sprouts, lemon zest and breadcrumbs.  But the fun part about Heidi’s take on the veggie burger is that the “patty” actually becomes the bun that you can stuff with lots of great fillings like avocado, tomato, grilled veggies, or you name it.  

I halved the recipe but otherwise followed it to the letter. However, I ended up making my patties a little too thick to be even close to as pretty as those pictured along with the original recipe.  But I will definately be making these again, they were delicious!  I thought the hint of lemon zest made the burger which tasted wonderful with the avocado slices and a sprinkling of cayenne I stuffed in the middle.
