Heavenly Hempseed Hamburgers

What you need: 

1/2 cup of toasted hempseeds
1/2 cup of thinly sliced sautéed vegetables (1 celery stick, 1/2 onion, and 1/2 red pepper)
1 lb of firm tofu
3 thinly sliced cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
5 tablespoons of ketchup
4-5 tablespoons of soya sauce
herbs (sage and parsley work well)
1/4 cup of breadcrumbs (maybe more)
flour

What you do: 

Sauté vegetables with garlic, hempseed and soya sauce.
In a bowl, crumble tofu and add nutritional yeast, herbs, ketchup and breadcrumbs.
Add sautéed vegetables to the bowl
mix everything together and form hamburger patties.
If the mixture doesn't hold together, add more breadcrumbs.
Lightly coat hamburger patty with flour (just enough that it is well bound). Put the patties in the fridge for 10 minutes so that it solidifies a little before frying.
Fry on medium heat for about 5-7 minutes on each side until golden brown.
One of the best burgers ever!!!!!

Hi.

These came out really nice.  I tend not to bother weighing things, and I have a big appetite, so the burgers were pretty big but they stuck together well (my heart sinks when you turn "burgers" over whilst frying and they all fall apart  :-\  ) 

I went a bit mad and made homemade potato chips and baked beans too, and it was all gorgeous!

Thanks for the recipe.    ;)b

Thank you, Vegansapien! I made these again and took your advice about really 'smooshing' the mixture well, which completely made the texture what I wanted it to be.  ;)b I think the time before it didn't work because I didn't want to get my hands messy. These do really taste unique and yummy, even though I use pasta sauce instead of ketchup (sorry, I just can't stand the flavour of ketchup).

I'm glad these worked out for you, BV! They are quick and easy. the other day I was craving them but didn't have any hempseeds...I made them anyway and they were still tasty without em.

These were pretty flavorful.  I subbed in Worcestershire sauce instead of soya sauce, used fresh herbs, and added in some chopped sun-dried tomatoes.  After the patties were formed I patted them with breadcrumbs instead of flour and simply threw them in the oven at 350 for approximately 7 minutes on each side.  I will definitely be making these again  8)

These didn't hold together enough for me, they look nothing like the one in the photo. They were white and (although I added more breadcrumbs) sort of mooshy. The flavour is good, the texture not so much. Maybe I made a mistake, I will try this recipe again but I wish someone could give me a tip on how to make the texture better.

Bohemian_vegan,

I've made these twice so far and love them. I use a lot more than 1/4 cups of breadcrumbs called for in the recipe. Maybe a 1/2 cup or more....? I just add the crumbs and smoosh it around with my hands until it feels right.I have been using seasoned breadcrumbs, too. I love love love the flavor of these. The texture of mine have not been super "burger-y" (can that be a word?) either. They kind of remind me of the salmon patties (texture-wise) my mom used to make when I was a kid.

uhblondie,

Ashamedly, those are just the frozen kind...seasoned wedges or something they're called. Normally, I would have made some homemade ones...but these were really flavorful...and oh so easy  ::)

These are so freaking fantastic. I was skeptical when I first read the list of ingredients, but they stayed together very well and tasted delish! I didn't even press my tofu. Just crumbled everything together in a bowl and formed into patties. I did use much more breadcrumbs than called for and only used onion and garlic instead of other veggies.

I spread some spinach dip on there and served on pumpernickel rolls. Tasty.

VeganSapien, that picture is mouth-watering. What kind of fries are those??
