Hello all you Happy Healthy 'Burghers, and wanna bees,
I wonder what your favorite Vegan burger is and am going to
run a poll here on Celebrating the Inner Healer and would love to include your candidate.So send me some submissions by scrolling down and adding your comment and name -- name the commerciallly available vegan burger (including those from restaurants) and I'll post a list for voting when I return from the Caribbean Holistic Holiday at Sea.
I'm planning to get sponsors to award special gift certificates for an upcoming contest too --
If you have a recipe for a homemade veggie burger that you think tops this one -- do submit it here too. We can plan a Meet-up Healthy Happy 'burghers veggie burgers tasting and vote in the Best of the 'burghers Veggie Burgers 2010 -- and if you live elsewhere --let's figure out how you too can have more fun.
The explosive growth of the Great American Meatout has been due largely to the support of consumer advocates, health authorities, and the mass media. Nearly 40 governors and large city mayors are issuing Meatout proclamations. Celebrity entertainers like Casey Kasem, Mary Tyler Moore, Ed Asner,Jennie Garth, Bill Maher, Rue McClanahan, and James Cromwell are headlining the observance. Hundreds of billboards and bus cards in ten major metropolitan areas are carrying the Meatout message. Lifestyle editors cover local events and carry celebrity interviews and stories on national trends toward meatless eating.
Homemade Veggie Burgers
1 cup dry lentils, rinsed
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 medium carrot, diced
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. soy sauce (optional)
3/4 cup rolled oats, finely ground
3/4 cup bread crumbs
Place lentils, water, and salt in saucepan and bring to a boil; lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 45 minutes, until water is nearly gone and lentils are very soft, with splitting skins.
Sauté the onion and carrot in oil until soft, about 5 minutes.
Mix lentils, onions, carrots, pepper, and optional soy sauce in a large bowl; add the ground oats and bread crumbs and mix more.
While still warm, form the lentil mixture into patties.
In a 400º oven, bake the burgers on a greased baking sheet until light brown (about 15 minutes) or put your grill to work.
