In A Jiffy Spelt Veggie Burgers

Cooking and baking > Unpacking

Small, embarrassing confession:

I still haven’t unpacked from our trip to New Brunswick over Christmas!! My clothes are currently placed neatly in a heap around my suitcase. It is a very sad sight. The fact of the matter is unpacking won’t bake my bars for me or create blog content, so it has been put on the back burner! Priorities…right? ;)

Before we get to these amazingly easy veggie burgers that I made, I will announce the winner of the gorgeous Lululemon yoga tote!

In A Jiffy Spelt Veggie Burgers

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked chick peas (of beans of your choice)
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and chopped into large pieces
  • 1 small sweet onion, peeled and chopped up into large pieces
  • 1/2 Red pepper, chopped into large pieces
  • 1/4 cup spinach, washed
  • 1/2 t dill (dried or fresh- I used fresh pureed dill)
  • 1/2 t dried basil
  • 1/4 t fine grain sea salt
  • tiny dash of cayenne
  • 1 clove minced garlic, optional
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds (so amazing in this burger!)
  • 1 T pumpkin seeds (pepita)
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup spelt flour (or flour of your choice)

Directions: Preheat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or spray with oil). Place all ingredients except the seeds and flour into a food processor. Process until mixture is blended well, stopping to scrape sides if necessary. Remove mixture and place into a large bowl. Add seeds and stir well. Now add the spelt flour (or flour of your choice) in 1/4 cup increments, stirring well until blended. Shape patties and bake for 15 mins at 375F, flip and bake for another 10 minutes.

Makes 8 small patties.

Great nutritional profile too! I also made BURGER BALLS and rolled them in chia flour. tee hee

Confession #2:

I ate 4 patties they were so good! I was super hungry from my early morning workout and these squashed my hunger in a flash. I can’t even begin to express my love for these veggies burgers!

Prep time was just 10 minutes too.

IMG_9092

Seriously awesome tasting. The key ingredient is the sunflower seed by far. The flatbreads were fun but oh so messy.

Confession #3:

I have always avoided making veggie burgers because I thought it would be a very lengthy process and some recipes I have seen were quite long. This was super quick and easy though, especially if you have a food processor.

Have you ever avoided making a particular dish because you were scared to or worried that it would take too long?

I avoided making pies for years and then I discovered it was actually easy! And mini pies were even easier.

Well, lunch is over and it is back to baking. Today is a long, long, long day of baking. Will be at it until at least 10pm!

Have a great day :)

I have avoided making pizza dough and some other pastries. I am scared to do it and it looks like it would be such a process. Maybe I will conquer my fear this year and do pizza dough, I love pizza.

Same here!
‘Make a pizza from scratch’ has been on my 101 Things in 1001 Days list since Oct 09…maybe this year I will conquer the fear too!
Good Luck :)

I have to pipe in here because it really is easy! You don’t even have to let it rise!!! It will rise some while you are putting the toppings on it and a little more when it first gets into the oven.

We can whip it up and have a pie in the oven in 15-20 minutes. We even make pizza from scratch in the dutch ovens when camping over the coals….YUM!

AGS January 7, 2010 at 3:27 pm

I make pizza from scratch all the time — about once/week b/c it is my husband’s favorite. It took about a year for it to be the way we wanted it (floppy, NY style). The first time I made the dough, it was kind of a disaster — not soft and flexible at all. Just go for it, and you will be a pizza pro in no time. It really doesn’t take much longer than other dishes. I make all the other things we’re going to eat with the pizza, set the table, and do lunches/clean-up while the dough rises. I consider one of my great weekly acts of domestic love. ;)

Nikki T January 7, 2010 at 3:52 pm

That is awesome! Pizza is a fave of my husband too, but we always just order the good ‘ol greasy stuff. I’d really love to make my own.
I know dough recipes aren’t rocket science, but would you mind sharing yours??

AGS January 7, 2010 at 4:30 pm

Pizza Dough (for one pizza pie)

About 3 cups flour (I use a combination of ½ white and ½ whole wheat)
1 cup warm water (it should be warm, but against your wrist, should not feel hot)
1 teaspoon sugar (or honey)
2 teaspoons yeast
1 teaspoon salt
Little oil

Additions:
¼ cup soy flour
1 T. wheat germ
1 t. oregano
You can also play with the flour combination (oat, spelt, etc.), but we like it simple, so I keep it that way.

Mix yeast, sugar and warm water in bowl (you could skip the sugar, but it is food for the yeast). Let is stand for a few minutes to make sure the yeast is active. Once the yeast gets a bit bubbly, add salt and enough flour to make a really stiff dough (you can add the additions at this time, if you like). Mix thoroughly. Slowly add more flour until a ball starts to form. Put flour on the counter and knead the dough until soft and elastic, adding more flour as needed. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning it so it is thoroughly covered. Cover with a cloth that is a little damp, and place is a warm spot. It will take about 40 minutes to rise. Punch down and roll or stretch out as you like. Place on lightly oiled pizza sheet/stone, and proceed with toppings.

Ta-da. And remember: It is just an excuse to make more pizza if it doesn’t turn out great the first time.

Oh yum. Those look fantastic. Yes, there are tons of recipes I avoid just for that reason. One being lentil loaves. Another is an almond “feta” that a blogger friend posted. I SOOO want to give it a shot, but it seems daunting.

Ricki January 7, 2010 at 1:46 pm

Your burgers/balls looks so tempting! I love your photos. I also shied away from veggie burgers for a long time for fear they’d be time-consuming. But I’m all about easy (well, in cooking, that is!), so when I found the recipe, I knew I’d have to try it. I’m so glad you enjoyed them! :D

Honestly, veggie burgers are the thing I haven’t made because I imagine that it would take forever with all the chopping and stuff. So glad to have your recipe, though, because I’ll definitely be trying them now!

Those veggie burgers look delicious.

It’s always amazing to me how easy some things we’re scared to try are. There’s always warnings by people about this type of recipe or that type of recipe, how it’s difficult, how you need to be careful, blah, blah, blah. When really a lot of the time it’s not as bad as we think.

liane January 7, 2010 at 2:04 pm

I will give the veggie burgers a try.
I have tried store bought veggie burgers and I have yet to find any that I like, but I had never thought to make them!
Thanks for the recipe.

Reply

Audrey January 7, 2010 at 10:54 pm

I don’t really like the store-bought ones either. For that reason I’ve been itching to see if I can’t make a better burger. Looks like Angela has done it for me!

Reply

Morgan January 7, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Pies for me too! I was terrified to make pie crust from scratch and it’s so easy!
I’m the opposite when it comes to unpacking. I like to be unpacked ASAP. We came home from the holidays, unloaded the car, unpacked all of the bags and put everything away before we even sat down. Both my husband and I feel unsettled if we haven’t unpacked!

Stacy Cina January 7, 2010 at 2:51 pm

I hate unpacking. I totally understand putting it off, I think its the worst part about travelling. And I wont lie, I may be the same way when it comes to putting away my laundry. Theres a possibility that Fridays laundry is still sitting in a pile that has moved from my bed, to the floor, to a chair. I just keep my bedroom door closed and its like its not even there!

Danielle (Coffee Run) January 7, 2010 at 2:17 pm

These look so good! I usually have a tough time getting veggie burgers to stay together but yours look pretty solid. I had always wanted to make bread from scratch but was intimidated by all the “kneading, let rise…” But it’s so easy! And delishhh

hi angela! those burgers look super yummo! i can’t wait to try and make them.

do you have any suggestions on things to eat when you don’t have time to cook? is subway the best place to go if i’m trying to lose weight?

amy January 7, 2010 at 2:40 pm

This is great to have such an easy recipe for veggie burgers. I was astounded at how expensive premade vegetarian food is.
Do you have a favorite recipe for homemade baked beans? I’m trying to get away from canned food as much as possible.

I’ve got to be honest here – If a recipe has more than a handful of ingredients I’m usually hesitent to try it. Also, if there is no picture attached there is no point in even reading it!

hehe.. I just realized that after I saw my name on this post, I stopped reading… but these look AMAZING! I am going to try these for sure… as I’m not a fan of store bought ones.

One thing I always think looks like too much work are granola bars/ or those little date/nut balls… I feel like it ends in too much clean up!!! That’s why I need to order some of your glow bars ASAP! :)

They look delish! I have one suggestion. I have always found veggie burgers to be somewhat bland. The last time I made some, i added a couple tablespoons of cut up cilantro and it was awesome! If you like cilantro, you’ll love the added flavor it gives to the patties. good luck!

I’ve hesitated making lots of things before because I thought it would be too hard, but I’m glad to say I’ve been proven wrong every single time. Even bread is SO much easier than I thought- the hardest part is waiting for it to rise :)

They look SO good. I’m making lentil patties tonight, so maybe these won’t be stretch after all. :)

Last year, I embarked on guacamole, fresh salsa, marinara sauce, and steamed clams. Everything turned out so well, I was practically in shock. I now make marinara sauce all the time, using a very simple/fast recipe from _Gourmet_ (so sorry that it is no longer in production).

I have never tried veggie burgers, after witnessing a friend’s disasterous results several years ago, but I might – just might – have to give your recipe a try! ;)

Cristina January 7, 2010 at 3:42 pm

Thanks so much for posting these, they look amazing! (And they have so much fiber!) I always just eat the Morning Star Garden Veggie Patties, but they get old after a while. The only thing I’m concerned about is finding the Chia Seeds and the Spelt flour (is this common? I live in a small town that probably doesn’t have this :p)

Reply

Erin January 7, 2010 at 3:53 pm

Totally with you on making your own veggie burgers. I tried a recipe one time from another blogger, and although I know the recipe just didn’t appeal to my tastebuds, I’ve been avoiding other veggie burger recipes. I need to get over my fear of another kitchen disaster!

Reply

Aletheia January 7, 2010 at 4:01 pm

These would taste so0o0o0o good with sundried tomatoes! Try pulsing a handful of them in next time in your food processor. Divine, I tell ya!

As for your question of the day : MAJORLY TIMELY!! After swearing off of nori wraps (can’t roll those paper sheets for the life of me) I’m currently running off a culinary high of having JUST made my first batch ever of non-exploded, non-leaky, non-ripped scrumptious squishy-ly successful mushroom nori rolls !! WAHOO!! Check it out: http://lafillenaturelle.wordpress.com/files/2010/01/img_0383.jpg

I thought I’d share with you a recipe we tried two nights ago for black bean burgers. I added a cup of oats to the recipe since the reviews said they fell apart easily. I hope you like them! (Vegan substitute for the egg but it might not have even been necessary…)

that sure looks like a great veggie burger! Do you have to have a pretty large food processor? I just have a smallish one, but I could do batches? They look like they stay together nicely. hmmm I usually like trying new recipes even if they are long! I like getting messy in the kitchen :)
hope you tackle your long baking day!

Reply

Audrey January 7, 2010 at 10:59 pm

I was wondering the same thing. My food processor is quite small (a 3 cup Kitchen Aid in china blue and I love it. What can I say? I’m a poor college student!). I think I will either halve the recipe or do it in batches, like you suggest.

Angela (Oh She Glows) January 7, 2010 at 11:49 pm

Hmmm…well, it was about 1.5 cups veggies maybe, 1 cup chickpeas + spices…it may fit?

and flour but that blended in quite quickly…

Reply

Stacy January 11, 2010 at 1:48 pm

It wouldn’t all fit in mine since I have a tiny food processor. I processed all the veggies (except spinach) together first and put the mix in a bowl. Then I processed the spices, spinach, and chickpeas together and added that to the bowl before adding the flour/seeds.

It looks really great. I wish I could make such lovely veggie burgers. This could be served in a restaurant. The other night we made pasta and I did not think it would take forever and a day, but it did, so I guess that is the opposite of not making something because you think it would take to long!

I’ve always stayed away from making any kinds of bread involving yeast. They usually take longer and for some reason, yeast scares me. It seems so easy to mess up. I would LOVE a recipe for some good yeast rolls or some amazing whole wheat bread though.. any out there?

Reply

Audrey January 7, 2010 at 11:04 pm

I always think recipes will take longer than they do. In fact, the other day (more like week now) I made a pie for my brother’s class (don’t ask me why but he needed it) and start to finish (I made the homemade crust and everything it took like, oh, maybe 20 minutes. So easy!

I read somewhere that we are often afraid to try things because we think we won’t succeed. When you think about it, though, what do we have to loose!

I want to make these homemade burgers and put them in Angela’s spelt wraps…maybe with some hummus, lettuce, tomato, or/and avocado. YUM! I was so excited to see a recipe that I have all the ingredients for. Rock on!

This looks like a good recipe that could be converted to a Raw Food meal by using sprouted garbanzo beans instead of cooked and a dehydrator instead of the oven. It is not as “jiffy” as yours, but you have some flavorful ingredients here that will make it worth the wait.
Thanks!

I’m 18 and I turned vegan last year, your blog has been an immense help in inspiring me! :) I love your recipes and commentaries but I’ve always been too shy to comment! I’ve been admiring these burgers for ages and I want to have a go at making them today. My only question is if it’s okay to omit the seeds? I’m allergic to sunflower seeds and I don’t want to try chia seeds because I feel like I might be allergic to them too. Would they still hold well?

Thanks love for creating such a website, and I believe I’m saying this for everybody too, sharing your journey with us. xo

Is there a way to add or substitute Quinoa in this recipe?
