Inspired by requests for a healthy alternative to the traditional hamburger, Jess of Cook Smarts developed a perfect summer veggie burger with this recipe. We love the texture that this veggie burger gets from ingredients like farro, black beans, and corn. The farro and beans are rich in fiber to make the burgers particularly filling and nutritious. Spiced with smoked paprika, the patties have a perfect hint of savory sweetness. Throw them on some wheat buns or English muffins, dressed up with your favorite condiments, and you’ll be all set to go!
We love the rich, wholesome texture that freekeh gives to these veggie burgers, being the main ingredient. Freekeh is a delicious cracked cereal loaded with fiber and iron. It is similar in consistency to rice, although it contains much higher levels of nutrients. For improved texture, the recipe also incorporates brown rice flour and adzuki beans. The addition of chipotle mustard makes it a truly tasty meal. These homemade veggie burgers will soon become a favorite of yours!
Tabbouleh is a light and refreshing salad made from bulgur wheat, and these burgers are made from the same great ingredients. Combined with fresh vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumber, these patties are simply delicious. Bulgur wheat has a mild nutty flavor and chewy bite that makes it wonderful for burgers, as well as salads and casseroles. After preparing the tabbouleh salad, all you need to add is whole wheat flour and cornstarch to form them into patties. Bake or pan-fry them until they become perfectly crispy!
