Vegetarian Big Mac Burgers

This burger takes a little bit of prep but is worth the effort.  It has a good variety of vegetables bound together by oat flour and sunflower seeds.  It takes 40 minutes to bake, and another 15-20 to prepare so plan for an hour in the kitchen.  This recipe makes 6 burgers.

  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup carrot, grated (about 2 large) or chopped in a food processor
  • 1 1/2 cups zucchini, grated or chopped in a food processor
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups cremini mushrooms, chopped fine or chopped in a food processor
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup oat flour (just grind 1 c. oatmeal in the food processor)
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cuplettuce
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp thousand island dressing (per each burger)
  • 1 tomato slice (per burger)
  • 2 dill pickle slices (per burger)
  • 1 slice Cheddar cheese (per burger)-optional
  • 1 slice red onion per burger
  • sesame seed burger buns
Melt coconut oil in a large frying pan.  Add onion, carrot and garlic.  Saute for about 4 minutes, then add in the zucchini, and mushrooms.  Saute for another 5 minutes.  In the food processor grind the oatmeal and sunflower seeds together.  Remove from heat and mix with oat flour mixture.  Refrigerate for about 10 minutes.  Take out of the refrigerator and form into 6 patties.  Place on a parchment sheet on a cooky tray.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.  Flip and cook for another 15 minutes.  Place a piece of cheese on top of each burger.  Bake an additional 5 minutes.
Serve on a bun with thousand island dressing, pickles, tomato, lettuce and onion.
