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.
