White Bean Burger

From CodeNameSarah

1 15 oz can drained butter beans (or any white bean)
Large handful parsley leaves, plucked
2 medium carrots, grated
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 TB olive oil
1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/4 cup grated Parmesan (omit for vegan option)

Whiz all in food processor until mixture comes together, form 4 – 6 patties, and bake on parchment in preheated oven at 400F for about 20 minutes.

They’re good on a bun or with pasta sauce. If you do want to omit the cheese for vegans, add a couple of tablespoons of nutritional yeast for a similar flavor.

Garbanzo Burgers

From @scienceandart

Can of Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans)
1/2 cup chickpea flour (sometimes cornmeal)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon chili powder
dash of cumin
half finely diced carrot
coarse sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Everything into a food processor.
Ground up, and then form into a ball. Press into patties between wax paper, freeze.

I make batches, and then freeze them, and cook them as needed.
Sometimes I’ll add yellow pepper, or add snap peas, corn, or whatever else I have left over.

The chickpea flour, or cornmeal, adds to thickening it up.

Gazpacho

I don’t remember where I got this recipe.

2-1/2 c V-8 or other vegetable juice (use Spicy V-8 if you want)

1 c peeled, seeded, finely chopped fresh tomatoes (I used pear tomatoes and didn’t peel, seed, and my “fine chopping” is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch)

1/2 c finely chopped celery

1/2 c finely chopped cucumber

1/3 c finely chopped green bell pepper

1/2 c finely chopped green onion

3 T white wine vinegar

2 T extra-virgin olive oil

1 large clove garlic (I used 2)

2 t finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1/2 t salt

1/2 t black pepper

1/2 t ground red pepper (I probably added more, I didn’t measure)

and I added a few drops of Tabasco

Combine all, cover, refrigerate overnight.

She brings this to work covered dish events and we eat it with tortilla chips or crackers. She said that where ever she got the recipe recommended it over baked potatoes.
