Here is another great vegan recipe I found for our daughter who is trying Vegan. I've been making her recipes that will last throughout the week so she always has something and it's less stress on me to make her a separate meal. Being vegan is hard! Kudos to any of you out there! Hey if anyone has favorite vegan recipes you'd like to share with me I'd love to see them!
I had seen this Bean and Zucchini burger recipe on pinterest before (that ahh-mazing photo!) and decided to give it a go. It's a pretty simple recipe and although I did not make this gluten free (I was afraid if I did, I'd eat all of her burgers lol) you certainly could. I also just realized her recipe calls for kidney beans, I don't know where I got garbanzo beans from, but that's what I bought. They worked great!
I had forgotten to get zucchini at the store but I had frozen shredded in the freezer already so I thawed that and used it. I also added in some shredded carrot and more seasonings. Let me tell you, these smelled amazing while cooking, I kept sticking my nose into the pan, lol.
Veggie Burgersadapted from Vegan Sandra
30 oz can garbanzo beans, drained
1 white onion, finely diced
2-3 medium zucchini, diced or shredded
1 large carrot, shredded
3 tsp curry powder
1 TBL chopped garlic
salt and pepper to taste
3 tsp vegetable stock powder (I crumbled 1 GF veggie bouillon cube)
3/4 cup wheat flour (OR gluten free flour)
oil for frying
Drain and rinse the beans, put them to a bigger bowl and mash them with a potato smasher. Add onions, zucchini carrot, along with curry powder, garlic, salt and pepper, vegetable stock powder and whole-wheat flour. Mix carefully with your hands or with a fork. Shape into desired sized patties (I used my burger shaper and got 7 regular sized patties). Heat about 2 TBL of oil in a large skillet and fry them until crispy on both sides (about 6 mins/side). Keep warm in oven as you cook the rest.

these patties develop a crispy exterior with a soft center.
