Take My Breath Away Burgers

What you need: 

2 cups uncooked blackeyed peas (or 4 cups cooked beans of choice)
1 onion, diced
4 large garlic cloves, grated
1 fresh jalapeno, seeded and chopped or 3 tablespoons pickled jalapeño
2 carrots, grated
1 1/2 cups corn
1 tablespoon Bragg's or tamari/soy sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons hot mustard (or regular)
2 tablespoons pureed chipotle peppers
1 cup oats
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1/4 cup flour, if needed

What you do: 

1. Soak beans overnight or use quick soak method and then cook according to package directions. Mash up in a large bowl.
2. Sauté onion, jalapeno, garlic, corn, and carrot in a little oil or the Braggs. Add sauté mixture to mashed beans and stir in spices, mustard, and chipotle puree (I like to add a few dashes of habanero hot sauce, but somehow I don't think everyone shares my love for extremely spicy food).
3. Mix in oats and wheat germ. May need flour if it cannot be formed into patties.
4. Form into patties, grill on grill machine or roll in flour and grill in a frying pan. Freeze leftovers.
Marvelous topping suggestions: Avocado, red onion, tomato, spinach, and vegan nayo mixed with some chipotle/chili sauce.
Source of recipe: A freak burger experiment gone wonderfully spicy.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

These burgers were super tasty, I had a bit of trouble keeping them together although I did add some flour. I found that when I bit down on the burger it almost came out of the bun. Next time I will make them a bit smaller. These things are awesome and I will be sharing this with my non veg buddies.

I find making small patties is best for all vegan burger recipes, they cook more thuroughly :)

Really, REALLY good.  I only made half a batch (6 burgers, because I had 6 buns).  I would maybe recommend using quick oats or grinding the oats before using, because my whole rolled oats took a while to absorb enough moisture to work as a binder.  Next time I might put the mixture through my food processor too, because the pieces of corn and onion made them a little hard to form into patties.  The flavor was excellent though...probably the best veggie burger I've ever had.  ;)b

Ok, I made these and they are very good.  I didn't make the full amount of peas but did use just as much veggie.  I added extra mustard to it because we are mustard fiends.  It's almost like a New Orleans kind of burger, at least I felt like it, like a bayou burger. Very yummy.

Isn't there anyone brave enough to try these out there in Vegweb? They're really good!  ;)b  Ive been feeding them to my non-veg friends and they say they're better than the alternative! If you don't like the work of beans from scratch, use 2 cans of any beans of choice. Live a little - Try my burgers! 8-)
