I love making veggie burgers because they’re so easy to cook. Also, every time I make them I receive tons of compliments from my non-veg friends. Veggie burgers are a great way of introducing your non-veg friends to vegetarian cooking. They’ll love them for sure!

P.S. Here are some great recipe ideas using Adzuki beans! The Kitchn rocks! 😀
- 150g adzuki beans, previously soaked for at least 5 hours (it is best to let them soak overnight)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 small carrot, grated
- 6-7 young salad leaves, chopped
- 2 Tbsps ground flax + 3 Tbsps water (or one large egg)
- 2 Tbsps fresh chopped parsley
- breadcrumbs or chickpea flour (you can also use regular wheat flour – you’ll need it if the composition is too moist)
- sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp thyme + ½ tsp ground coriander + ½ allspice or burger spices mix (optional – if you want it to taste even more like beef burgers you can add a spices mix, but be sure it's natural and additive-free – if you add spices mix you won’t need to add salt and pepper as it most likely already contains them)
- Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
- Put the previously soaked adzuki beans in a pot and cover them with water. Let them boil for 40 minutes (or until tender) and don't forget to add 1 tsp baking soda in the water. This way the beans won't cause bloating and will get soft faster.
- When ready, drain very well the adzuki beans. Put them in a large bowl and using a vertical mixer, mash them a little. Not too much. Whole azuki beans give the burgers a very nice texture.
- Add chopped onion, parsley, grated carrot, salt, pepper, spices (or spices mix), egg/flax egg and chopped salad leaves. Blend them well together using a fork.
- Now, the composition has to be sticky and easy to shape the patties. If it is too moist you can add some breadcrumbs or chickpea/rice/soy flour. Start with 2 tbsps and add more if needed.
- Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan. 1tbsp of oil is enough. Make the burger patties and put them on the pan to cook. Let them cook about 2 minutes on each side.
- Serve with anything you like (tip: they’re great with mustard! yum!) .
