We love a good patty, and good patties aren’t that easy to come by, or to make. To get the right amount of crispy on the outside without being too heavy and gluey on the inside, whilst all being sticky enough to stay together is no easy feat. That’s why store bought veggie burgers are what a lot of people opt for… But with the right recipe and a bit of extra time and tender loving care, home made versions taste sooo much better!!! And as most home made things are, cheaper and healthier! Bonus!!

Oh yeah.

Bean Patty Recipe:

1 can of black beans (I actually used half black half cannelinni(the white ones) for these patties cause I didn’t have full quantity of black) mushed up somewhat

1 cup cooked quinoa

2 eggs beaten lightly

1/2 cup brown rice flour

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup frozen peas or grated zuchini

garlic, cumin, corriander, chilli powder, salt and pepper and parmasan or regular cheese to taste

Combine all the ingredients well and scoop into heated fry pan with 1/3 Cup measure. Cook medium low for about 5-8 minutes. Make sure you leave them long enough before flipping them to avoid any broken patty casualties…

Tasty Tahini Dressing

1/4 cup Tahini

3 crushed garlic cloves

1/2 cup lemon or lime juice

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

2 TBS olive oil

4 TBS water

1 TBS Apple cidar vinegar

salt, pepper, paprika, chillie flakes, parsley to taste

Blend in a food processor, add more water depending on how thick/thin you like it…
