Vegan Hamburgers

American’s favorite foods:  Hamburgers and Pizza.  But if you are Gluten Free and Vegan, there are not many choices at all for us!!

Personally, I can live without hamburgers, but pizza is another story ….

Anyway, thanks to my online Gluten Free Vegan friends, I have found recipes for BOTH Hamburgers and Pizza that are Gluten Free and Vegan!

The first is Vegan & Gluten-Free red bean burgers! by Sophie33

Vegan & Gluten-Free red bean burgers!
Recipe Type: Gluten Free, Vegan, Red Bean Burgers, Meat substitute
Author: Sophie33
Serves: 4 burgers
Ingredients
  • 2 cans of organic red kidney beans, well-rinsed under water & well-drained
  • 1 teaspoon of dried shallots powder
  • 1 teaspoon of dried garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt + 4 grins extra
  • 15 grins of finely milled black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoons of smoked picanté paprika (The Spanish smoked picanté version )
  • 1/3 cup of smaller buckwheat flakes (gluten-free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of a fruity EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl add the red kidney beans. Wit the help of a fork, mash the beans leaving a few whole or mostly whole.
  2. Add dried shallots, dried garlic, salt, pepper & smoked picanté paprika, and mix well.
  3. Mix in 1/3 cup of buckwheat flakes. The mixture will be a bit dry so add that 1/2 teaspoon of fruity EVOO, and mix again.
  4. Add the salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Shape into 4 burger patties. Place them spaced apart on a clean plate & place cling film over them. Place into the fridge for later use (they tend to fry better after refrigerated for an hour or two.) or fry them instantly in a hot non-stick pan for a few minutes on each side or until browned on both sides.
  6. Take your gluten free toasted hamburger bun and smear some tasty vegenaise on the bottom of the bun. Add a few lettuce leaves, your tasty vegan red bean burger, a slice of tomato, some fried red onion rings, a dollop of ketchup & close with your top bun!

 

I was given a tip awhile back about baking vegan burgers.  When they are fried, it is difficult to keep them together.  But if you place them on a generous greased cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes.  Remove from the oven, flip and bake another 5 or so minutes.

Check out the video to see how this works!
