The Vegan Stoner. Vegan Project. I recently picked up one of my favourite cook books to date, Vegan Diner by Julie Hasson.
Fancied up comfort food is my specialty and diners are my weakness, so I snatched this book off the shelf at Chapters and headed to the kitchen to test it out. My first go was this quinoa burger recipe. I don’t make burgers very often, and thought that should change with the summer bbq-ing season not far ahead. I chose this one in lieu of the other two burger recipes in the book (Mushroom Burgers and Brown Rice Hazelnut Burgers) simply because I had all the ingredients on hand. They were delicious! Ingredients: (Makes about 6 burgers) 1/2 cup diced yellow onion 3 cloves garlic 12 ounces chickpeas (about 1 1/2 cups), canned or homemade, drained 1/2 cup quick oats (not instant) 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning or favourite spice blend 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 2 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos or soy sauce 2 tablespoons chickpea flour (I used coconut flour)
