  1. Walnut Burgers

    September 22, 2011 by siera104

    I adapted this recipe for making veggie burgers from walnuts from a recipe online a few years ago. Here’s a link to the original recipe .The recipe is much easier if you have a food processor, but you can chop the veggies by hand too. The original recipe calls for frying the burgers in a pan, my patties often fell apart when I tried this, but I’ve had much more success when I’ve baked them.

    Walnut Burger

    Nutburger, with sprouts

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup Walnuts, ground
    • 3 stalks Celery
    • 1 medium Onion
    • 1 cup Parsley (fresh or dried)
    • 1 cup Wheat Germ (or cooked rice)
    • 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese , shredded
    • 2 Eggs
    • 1 small Green or Red Bell Pepper
    • 1 teaspoon Salt
    • 1 tablespoon Basil
    • 1 teaspoon Cumin
    Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
    2. Grind walnuts or buy pre-ground walnuts. If you don’t have any way to grind the walnuts, put them in a large plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.
    3. Finely chop celery and onion, or pulse in food process until peices are small.
    4. Finely chop bell pepper.
    5. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. If mixture is too wet add more wheat germ.
    6. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, this makes it much easier to flip and remove the patties.
    7. Press into patties, recipe makes about 6, and place them on the cookie sheet.
    8. Bake for 10-15 minutes, flip burgers, and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.
    9. Serve warm like a burger, with condiments and toppings.

    The leftovers keep well for a few days, and the burgers freeze nicely too. When I re-heat the patties some time I put them on the George Foreman Grill.
