Garbanzo Burger Recipe.

Garbanzo Burger Recipe.

For anyone who wants a good bean recipe: here's a recipe I modified from one I found at allrecipes.com. It's a little fuzzy on amounts--sorry! I usually just judge how much stuff to put in by how it looks. But I'll try to quantify it a little better. This makes lots of yummy patties that you can eat on buns/bread or on a plate, maybe with a little gravy or tomato sauce. Garbanzo Burgers You'll need: Garbanzo beans Milk (or unsweetened soy milk or water) Wheat & barley cereal (Grape Nuts or store-brand equivalent) 1 packet dry onion soup mix (optional) 2 eggs (or vegan equivalent, for binding) Seasoned bread crumbs for coating Oil for frying or for coating your grill Mash up some cooked garbanzo beans (I'd say about 2 cups) with a potato masher or in your food processor if you have one. They don't have to be really finely mashed--chunks are fine. In a large bowl, mix the beans, about a quarter-cup of milk (water or unsweetened soy/rice milk would probably be fine too), eggs (or equivalent) and some (generic) Grape Nuts cereal (about 1 cup). Add the dry soup mix (if you don't have any, just use any sort of bouillon/seasoning that you like) and mix well. It'll be pretty thick but shouldn't be terribly dry; if it is, add a little more milk/water. Let the mixture stand at room temp for about 30 minutes or put it in the fridge overnight. Form into patties and dredge in bread crumbs, then fry in a little oil or cook on your electric grill / grill pan if you have one. Depending on how thick your burgers are frying will take about 4-5 minutes per side.
