Veggie-Flax Burgers

This is a true veggie-lover’s burger—not an “I can’t believe this isn’t beef” patty. The flax adds a little bulk and binding power (and its great nutritional qualities) to this veggie-legume blend. Garnish with your favorite condiments, cheese, or sliced vegetables.

Directions
  1. Place artichoke hearts, garlic, green onions, parsley, garbanzo beans, kidney or black beans, ground flaxseed, tahini, and pepper in a food processor; pulse about eight times, until blended. Scrape down sides and pulse another six times. Do not overprocess. Transfer to a bowl and gently stir in cooked rice or millet.
  2. Divide mixture into four portions and form into patties 1/2-inch thick.
  3. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Fry burgers until bottoms are brown, about 5 minutes. Spray tops of burgers with cooking spray and flip. Cook until brown, about 5 more minutes. Serve on buns, if desired.
