Well, I finally got around to creating a couple Plant Powered No Sugar No Grains (NSNG) burger recipes…

  • Basic White Bean & Seed Burgers
  • Curry Patties

For these 2 new recipes, I used my usual “burger formula,” except I substituted 1/4 cup ground flax seeds and 1/4 cup chia seeds for the 1/2 cup oat flour that I used before.

Here are my 3 previous gluten free burger recipes.  If you want to make these NSNG, then just make the same substitution…

Basic Burger Ingredients

Basic White Bean & Seed Burger Ingredients

BASIC WHITE BEAN & SEED BURGERS

1/4 C sunflower seeds, ground
1/4 C chia seeds
1/4 C ground flax seeds

dash celery salt
dash garlic powder
1/4 t black pepper
1/2 t smoked paprika
1/2 t dried parsley
1 t dried chives
1 t nutritional yeast

15 oz can rinsed white beans OR 1 pint homemade cooked white beans
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/4 C chopped onion
1/4 C chopped carrot
1 T tahini
1 t vegan Worcestershire OR tamari
1/4 t liquid smoke
1/4 t Tabasco

Coconut oil or Villa Cappelli olive oil (for cooking the patties)
Parchment paper (for forming the patties)

ASSEMBLY:

1. Use a food processor to grind the seeds into a powder.

2. Combine the ground seeds and dry spices in a large mixing bowl.

3. Use the same food processor to puree the beans, vegetables and wet ingredients.

4. Add the wet puree to the mixing bowl and stir.

5. Spread the burger batter evenly in the bottom of the bowl.  Use a knife to make 6 even portions.

Divide the burger batter into 6 portions.

7. Flatten and form the patties with the spoon.  There’s no need to get your hands dirty!

8. You should be able to cook these right away, but I typically refrigerate for 30-60 minutes, to allow the seeds to fully absorb the moisture.

9. Cook with oil over medium heat.  Flip over every few minutes until the burger patties are nicely browned.

This one was cooked in Villa Cappelli olive oil.

11. The “raw” patties can be refrigerated for a few days or frozen for several months.  Store the patties on the parchment paper.  To cook from frozen, simply thaw the patties on the counter for about 15 minutes before cooking.

The Shire Cafe in Arlington, WA

Yes…there IS a vegetarian restaurant in Arlington, WA.  Who knew?  (Me!)

I actually found out about The Shire Cafe when I started volunteering at  New Moon Farm Goat Rescue and Sanctuary four years ago (which is also located in Arlington).

On Fridays, I scoop the poop at the farm, and then I eat lunch at The Shire Cafe– with the owner of the goat rescue (my friend 🙂 ).  On weekends, after mountain biking, Eric and I like to drop in for a cold Mirror Pond and some dinner.

Located in the same building (the Mirkwood), is Mordor Tattoo.  Savannah did my “vegan” wrist tattoo.

The Mirkwood has an ongoing live music schedule.  (Past our bedtimes!)

Back to the food!!

Just about everything on the menu can be made vegan.  There’s always a homemade vegan soup of the day.  Most entrees come with salad, soup or fries.  I highly recommend the soup, no matter what flavor is featured.  Here are some pictures to make your mouth water 🙂 …

Are you hungry for some vegan food yet?

*April 2018 update: this is no longer a vegetarian restaurant. Vegan options are plentiful, but they do serve animal products.
