Hey Friends, sorry its been so long since I have posted on my site. Life has been great, groovy but busy. I am excited to start posting again. I hope you will come back and check out what’s happenging at All in the Balance often. I love to hear from you!! This is not really a recipe, it is more inspiration with some suggestions on how to make a great No Bean Veggie Burger. I hope you get some ideas from the video. Leave me a comment and let me know what you love to use when making your veggie burgers  

Here is what I used in my No Bean Veggie Burger Recipe. ( I rarely measure- sorry )

  • One yam- I used the orange flesh kind but I prefer the yellow/golden ones
  • One can of no-salt organic tomatoes
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 1 onion
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 cup of brown rice- purple and black sticky rice works great
  • 1 golden beet
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 handful of fresh mushrooms

The first thing you want to do is cook your rice and steam your yam. You can use the microwave, no judgment over here. 

Next, you want to put all of the other ingredients you are using in a food processor and pulse it a few times. I think it is best if you do not over pulse the stuff. The texture is everything in our house. 

The next step is to heat a pan and slowly cook all the veggies. ( do not add the rice or yam yet ) You can use a little oil but honestly I think it is wiser to use a little water instead.



Lastly once that has cooked for about 5-8 minutes fold in your yam and rice. The yam should be mushy and blend in very easily. If not just give it a fine chop first.  Take your mixture off the heat and add in any spices you have handy. I used dried thyme, dried oregano and fresh parsley ( from my garden- YAY)

These hold together best if they have 3-4 hours in the refrigerator to set up. I like to let the mixture sit overnight.

I cook mine at 300 degrees for about 40 minutes, turning them once halfway through.

This is the non-fortified nutritional yeast I mentioned. Amazon has the best price I think. Click the picture to purchase it on Amazon.

If you make these I would love to hear how yours came out and what ingredients you used.
