Since I love the flavor of walnuts and the amazing health benefits (omega-3s), I am extremely excited about these "burgers". It's also a great way to create a Meatless Monday or any meatless day.
1 cup chopped organic walnuts (or BHT free)
3/4 cup of cooked garbanzo beans or lentils
1/3 cup of ground raw oatmeal or gluten-free bread crumbs
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 TBS Bragg's Liquid Aminos (healthy nonGMO alternative to soy sauce)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 TBS of apple cider vinegar
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 organic egg
Place all the ingredients, except the egg, in a Vitamix or food processor and blend.
Bake the patties at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and flip on the other side after 15 minutes. Since bread lacks nutritional value and creates digestibility challenges, consider wrapping your burgers in organic romaine lettuce.
