BTD Forums  /  Cook Right 4 Your Type  /  RFR:  Request for Recipe - A nonnie veggie burgers
Posted by: O in Virginia, Sunday, October 16, 2011, 8:00pm
My husband will eat veggie burgers, but the ones I've routinely bought in the grocery store all seem to have avoids for A non-secretors (now that I know his secretor status), at least the ones sold here.  I have searched the recipe directory, so no need to tell me to do that.  I'm wondering whether there are any A non-secretors here with personal recommendations for something that tastes as "normal" as possible.  I've never made my own veggie burgers before, but I didn't want to have to experiment too much trial & error style before I hit upon a *hit*.  Soy is only a neutral, in terms of veg. protein.  Any ideas?  I'm trying to feed him as many beneficials as I can get into him.  Thank much in advance.  :)

You searched the recipe database.  Did you find and try this one?

It looks like a different mushroom may be required for A-Nonnie, but otherwise it looks compliant...  

Maybe use Maitake (Beneficial) or Portabello (Neutral) for A-Nonnie.

My school sometimes just grills the top of large Portabello mushrooms as a vegetarian substitute for hamburgers.




They also do something more complicated with black bean patties, but I think they are buying those ready made.

I do not trust theirs so I do not eat them. But if I wanted to make them I would just convert any type of cooked bean or lentil in to something like refried beans by mashing them. Chop some onions and mix them with the beans. Stir in some spices and an egg. I would then form the mixture into patties and fry them. If the mixture was too moist to hold together well I would throw in a bread crumb substitute (what ever I had on hand--Ground flax seed, chia seeds, a compliant flour, almond or walnut meal, crumbs from compliant crackers, oat bran, cream of rice cereal)

They also serve patties made from tempeh.

Thanks, guys.  I saw the two in the recipe index that ABJoe and Gulfcoastguy linked.  I've never seen a maitake mushroom for sale around here, but I'll keep my eyes open.  I was hoping for a recipe that someone had actually personally tried and raved over.  Thanks again.  :)  I'll just have to start experimenting.

Drea, I'll ask Grey Rabbit.  Thanks.

Andrea, bean patties with tahini sauce sound good.  Tahini sauce on anything sound good, in fact.   ;)

This is what I do with cooked quinoa (instead of beans), vegies, herbs and an egg, make burger sized patties, then coat with ground flax and chia seeds, then cook in a skillet with ghee or bake on a tray in oven.

The recipe I linked had 4 votes with a 5 star rating.
The recipe GCG linked had 3 votes with a 4 star rating.

I consider the 4 votes with a 5 star rating to be 4 people raving over it... ;)   ;D

Ok, thanks, ABJoe.  You have a good point there.  :)

I just mash up compliant beans, add some compliant flour and an egg.  Salt, pepper and other seasonings....I'm sure they could be better, but who has the time?!  I can't afford to be picky anymore. :P ;)  I make little patties and put them in the oven to bake.  Or I fry them if I'm in a hurry.  Mama used to make veggie burgers when we were teenagers and they were astonishingly delicious.  But the brand she got had potatoes in them.

Thanks very much, Ribbit.  I'd been buying the Amy's brand frozen veggie burgers for DH, which he really liked, but wheat gluten is an ingredient, and he shouldn't have that.  That's why I wanted to make a homemade batch to freeze so he can pull one out whenever he likes.  I think I'll try a bean/veggie/rye flour combination.

Thanks again, all.  :)
