Yesterday I was craving a burger. With onion rings and a large glass of iced tea. I could, of course, have easily gone to the grocery store and picked up some frozen vegan burgers. They're good, don't get me wrong, and they are convenient when the hubby wants to grill on a sudden whim.
Fortunately, I have several burger recipes in my files to try.
One onion, chopped
1 c. rolled oats (not instant!)
1 c. chopped walnuts
1/4 c. flour
1 t. sage
1/2 t. thyme
1/2 t. salt
1-1/3 c. boiling water
Saute the onion in the olive oil. In a bowl, add the oats, walnuts, flour, sage, thyme and salt. Mix well. Pour in the boiling water and stir to mix. Add the onions and mix again. Let sit for 10-15 minutes, or until cool enough to handle. Form into patties. Fry the patties in olive oil until nicely browned on both sides.
Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
And don't forget to make some onion rings!
