Garden Burgers with Spiced Scalloped Potatoes

Garden Burgers

1/2 cup cooked Adzuki beans
1/2 cup cooked black eyed peas
1/2 cup zucchini, grated
1/4 cup green onion, very thinly sliced
1/4 cup red bell pepper, minced
1/4 cup baby bella mushrooms, finely diced
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
2 tbsp garlic minced
1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup water

Directions: In a medium sized bowl mash up the beans until they resemble a paste. Add all other ingredients and mix together. With your hands mold into patties, If to dry add a tbsp of water. Cook in a skillet on the stove with a bit of oil. I grilled up some onion and mushrooms to top the burgers, These are very versatile, Change up the veggies, add different spices, use different beans, try a different type of flour if you can't have gluten. Adjust to your preferences.  Top with anything you want. Makes approximately 8 patties

Spiced Scalloped Potatoes

4-5 potatoes, thinly sliced. (I used red, but any will work)
3/4 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup almond milk
2-3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp gram masala
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp sesame seeds
2-3 tbsp nutritional yeast.

Directions:Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place your potatoes in a baking dish slightly overlapping. Pour over the vegetable broth, then drizzle on the milk. I used a spray bottle of oil to mist the tops of the potatoes. Sprinkle on the garlic and spices. Then spray or drizzle again with the olive oil. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes.


  1. yum! home made veggie burgers are the best -- they beat the store bought brand any day!
    I once made mine similarly to this, but used cooked rice instead of wheat gluten. Yours looks so pretty with the onions on top!
