There are so many ways to make a great veggie burger and plenty of amazing recipes out there to try, the possibilities are endless! Since we are coming up on grilling and BBQ season, I wanted to work on some new recipes. Today we are sharing the recipe for our newest creation, a protein packed almond burger coated with ground almonds and seared for a crispy, crunchy finish. The plant-based protein in this burger comes from almonds, quinoa and kidney beans. Serve these burgers up with some lettuce “buns”, slices of tomato, onion and avocado. Enjoy!
1 1/2 cups almonds
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup kidney beans
1 carrot, chopped finely
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
In a food processor or Vita Mix blender, grind almonds until fine. Set aside 1/2 cup ground almonds in a small bowl. Add quinoa, kidney beans, carrot, thyme, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper and pulse to combine. Shape the burger into 2 inch patties and roll in the ground almond until covered.
Heat olive oil in a cast iron pan over medium heat. Add patties and cook about 5 minutes on each side or until crust is golden brown. Serve with all the healthy veggie toppings!
