Instagram & Falafel Veggie Burgers

First of all, before I forget, we are now on Instagram! I have wanted to do that for a very long time and today I did it! We are @ cookswithevie.

I have so many posts to finish! I hope I can get time to post them soon. 

We made these “burgers”, next time I want to try these on pita with tahini and hummus. I wasn’t prepared this time and just used the buns we had. 

This recipe is so easy. 

1/3 cup large flake oats

1cup chickpeas (I used canned, drained)

1cup lentils (I used canned, drained)

3 garlic cloves, minced 

2 green onions, chopped

1 egg

2tsp chili powder 

1tsp oregano

 1/4tsp salt

1/2 English cucumber, finely diced

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley 

Whirl oats in food processor until ground. Add in chickpeas, garlic, onion, egg, chili powder, oregano and salt. 

Process scraping down sides as needed until smooth. 

Place this mixture in a bowl and stir in lentils, cucumber and parsley. 

Shape into 4 patties.  

Cook patties in a lightly greased pan until golden on each side. 



We served on buns drizzled with tahini. And added whatever each person felt like adding. 

We also served with these baked sweet potato fries with curry lime dip.

 That super simple recipe will follow tomorrow.

Chatelaine Sauce…tastes kind of familiar

I was doing a little downsizing of a pile of magazines that I have been keeping for recipes recently and came across this recipe in a old issue of Chatelaine magazine.  It is a burger sauce that reminded me of another burger sauce that I have had before.  This one is great because I had all the ingredients on hand and it only made about 1/2 cup so enough for a few burgers.

The note on the recipe also pointed out that it is vegetarian and gluten free!  I will have to try this on veggie burgers as well.

You will need:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tsp prepared relish

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp white vinegar

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Simply whisk altogether in a bowl until combined.  I tasted it and decided toad a little more relish and vinegar, as I am not fond of mayonnaise I wanted to taste the other flavours more.  Refrigerate until ready to use.

We enjoyed it and I will definitely make it again.  Sorry no great burger photos this was a weeknight meal and the burgers were really simple, so the sauce helped dress them up and add more flavour!
