Recently, my son and I took a trip into the city to see Beetlejuice on Broadway (SO GOOD!). One of our favorite places to eat in the city is 5 Napkin Burger, which has THE most amazing veggie burgers I’ve ever eaten. When I got home I knew I had to try to make them myself, but there were SO many ingredients, so I went to the internet (as one does) for help. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try.
I couldn’t for the life of me find wheat berries nearby but I used bulgur wheat instead and I think they still came out pretty good!
I didn’t follow the recipe exactly because I planned to halve the recipe, which always results in interesting combinations of amounts.
I ended up making 2 batches with each batch containing:
1/2 cup cooked lentils
1 cup cooked bulgur
1/2 zucchini, shredded
4-5 button mushrooms, shredded
~1 cup shredded beets
~1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 cup panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
I used by measuring cup to form patties and popped them in the freezer for a bit before cooking (or freezing).
I ended up with 13 burgers anyway, even though I tried to halve the recipe!
Good thing they were delicious!
