Veggie Burger

I have tried going 75% vegetarian and 25% Non-vegetarian, but I have never ever ordered a veggie burger in a restaurant. I don’t care how great the vegetarian burger might be, if there is a real burger I am in for the meat. Like many kids who were born and raised in the Middle East, I got to eat nice juicy burgers growing up. Before we got married, friends of Kingsley thought I would only make burgers and make dinner and lunch menus out of burgers, but much to their shock that hasn’t been the case (otherwise this blog would not exist!) I have been wanting to make a vegetarian burger and finally got the chance to do so today because I had lots of ingredients to make one. Here is how I made mine

Summary

    Ingredients

    2 Potato –
    1 Zucchini –
    1 Carrot –
    Cloves – 3 Garlic
    Coriander – minced
    handful, Bean Sprouts – a chopped well
    Onion – cut them out in rings
    Tomatoes – round slices
    Avacado – cut
    Lettuce
    1 tbsp Paprika – or more
    1 tbsp Coriander powder –
    Salt
    Pepper
    Oil
    1 Egg –
    Bread crumbs
    Cheese slices – your choice
    Mayo
    Ketchup
    Hamburger buns

    Steps

    1. Boil and mash the potatoes, zucchini, carrots and garlic cloves
    2. The pressure cooker gets the job in a few minutes
    3. Add the minced coriander leaves and the finely chopped bean sprouts
    4. Next add the paprika, coriander powder, salt and pepper
    5. You can add your choice of seasoning
    6. Give it a good mix and get ready to make your patties!
    7. Beat an egg in a bowl
    8. Make patties and it may not be the easiest to work with, but work it into a round patti with the palm of your hands
    9. Dip it in the egg and cover it generously with the bread crumbs
    10. Heat oil in your frying pan
    11. I made sure it was not piping hot, cause I don’t like to burn and go black – so it was on just the perfect heat and I let the patties cook
    12. Since all the ingredients are cooked, it doesn’t take long for the patties to cook
    13. Place on some absorbent paper
    14. Getting your buns together is based on what you like
    15. I added some avocado, tomatoes, onions and lettuce
    16. Add some mayo or even a thick salad dressing
