Besides sewing and making stuff, I cook. On Tuesday I made a batch of homemade vegan veggie burgers

 I used this cookbook, and forgot to turn the photo.

 Here are the ingredients: cooked brown rice, shredded cabbage and carrots, gram flour, cilantro, ginger, sweet potato, onion, chick peas and spices.

 Grind up the rice and chick peas until they look like this.....

 Switch over to the shred blade and shred the onion and potato.

 Put all the ingredients into a big bowl, add gram flour to hold everything together. You don't want it to sticky or dry.

 Weight out 4 oz. and pat into patties.

 The recipe makes 8 patties. I like to put them on a foil lined sheet and freeze them. It helps to hold them together when they cook. After freezing for a few hours, I wrap 2 in foil. This makes 4 dinners.

 The worst part of cooking? The clean up. What a mess!

 I cleaned it all up before I went to work.

 The best part of cooking? Served with oven baked french fries.

 The real best part of cooking.

The Doctor says "Yum".  Guess Mr. Scooty isn't a vegan!


  1. They look and sound amazing - I shall definitely be trying these - The Doc's face says it all. Thanks for sharing - I'd love to see more of that book! xxx

  2. That looks easy enough and yummy!

  3. They look and sound delicious. Now if it was meat on that plate, Mr Scooty would be sniffing around instead of snoozing! xx

  4. Dear god those are gourmet burgers! Look at The Doctor tucking in like a mad thing! xoxox

  5. Shall clip and use this recipe. Thanks!

    I'm usually an "assembler" of Indian menus; e.g., a package of Dal Tadka (yellow lentil curry mix), nuked with tiny yellow Klondike potatoes, and a can a steam-crisp sweet corn. Pure gold!

  6. Coming over for lunch, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Mst try
    Happy Sunday

  7. they look delightful and easy to cook!, lovely recipe because most of its ingredients are really on hand in my kitchen!. I'm used to make some vegetables patties but they have some egg as an agglutinative, so they're not vegan!
    thanks for sharing!

  8. Oooh! Looks really yummy! Must try that sometimes because I love vege-steaks and homemade is always better than factorymade.
