  • For the Sauce:

  • 1.5 TBS honey (or .5 TBS Agave)
  • 1 TBS Sweet relish
  • 1-2 TBS Soy milk (whatever milk you prefer)
Instructions
  1. Prepare flax egg by combining 1 TBS ground flaxseed with 3 TBS warm water and set aside.
  2. Prepare potatoes by washing, pricking with a fork, wrap in paper towel and microwave ~4 minutes.
  3. Remove potatoes, allow to cool, and remove the skin.
  4. Process them in food processor and add to a large mixing bowl.
  5. Add drained and rinsed garbonzo beans, peeled carrots, onion, garlic, and juice of 2 lemons to the food processor.
  6. Process and scrape sides until mostly smooth and add it to the potatoes.
  7. Defrost spinach and peas in the microwave- squeeze out extra liquid from spinach.
  8. Chop roasted red pepper.
  9. Now combine all ingredients and spices in a large mixing bowl, hands are the best tool for this.
  10. Check mixture for seasoning and adjust to your preference.
  11. Right before forming dough add ¼ cup corn starch and combine. Don’t do this if you aren’t ready to form the patties yet.
  12. Line baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  13. Add corn starch and flour to a plate for dusting, this is what will make the crust and keep your patties together.
  14. Measure out veggie mixture in ½ cup measuring device.
  15. Compact it with your hands and form a patty.
  16. Lay the patty in the cornstarch/flour mixture and flip it to get it on both sides.
  17. Pick it up and continue to form the patty, the cornstarch flour mixture will start to absorb into the patty a bit.
  18. Place on baking sheet and spray the tops with some cooking spray.
  19. Once all are ready place in a 450 degree oven, cook on both sides for 20 minutes each, 40 total.
  20. To really crisp them up turn on your broiler after the 40 minutes, flip the patties, and broil both sides for another 2 minutes to get them really crusty. Keep in mind the side of the patty in contact with the pan is going to steam more than crisp because of the water from the veggies.
  21. Once they are out of the oven pull the foil and patties off the pan and onto a cooling rack so the bottom doesn’t steam and flip them once again.
  22. Serve on buns with burger sauces and your favorite fixing.
  23. To make the sauce combine all ingredients and mix until smooth.
  24. Adjust ingredient amounts based on texture and flavor preferences.
