Spicy Bean Burgers (vegetarian) / Pikantni burgeri od graha (vegetarijanski)

Low on cash, but want to make something filling and delicious? Fear not, these burgers are just the thing.

I came up with this recipe in order to use up all of the bits and bobs I had lying around the house. For different bits and bobs you have on your hand, feel free to subtract or add things. Just remember, you’ll need to add plenty of dry ingredients to the mashed beans and chopped vegetables to hold those burgers together. Here I opted for soy flakes, so I could ditch breadcrumbs or flour and make the burgers even more protein packed.

METHOD:

Strain the beans from any liquid and pat dry with a kitchen towel, then mash them up using a potato masher. Add all of the ingredients to the bean paste and stir really well to combine. Let sit for about half an hour, so all the flavors can mix.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 200°C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and using a large spoon (or large ice cream scoop, if you have one), divide the mixture on baking sheet. Gently press the down with your hands and thus form into patties. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until crispy and deep golden-brown.

Niste baš pri novcima, a htjeli biste napraviti nešto zasitno i ukusno? Ne bojte se, ovi burgeri su baš prava stvar.

Ovaj sam recept smislila da potrošim sve ostatke koji su mi se povlačili po kući. Slobodno oduzmite ili dodajte stvari da biste upotrijebili sve ostake hrane koje vi imate doma. Samo imajte na umu da trebate u burgere dodati dovoljno suhih sastojaka u pastu od graha i nasjeckano povrće kako bi se sve držalo na okupu. Ja sam se odlučila za sojine ljuspice da mogu izbaciti krušne mrvice i kako bi burgeri bili još napucaniji sa proteinima.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 burgera / 1,99 kn po burgeru / 15,97 kn za sve)

1 ½ šalice već skuhanog bijelog graha (3,00 kn)

1 mali luk, sitno nasjeckan (0,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,75 kn)

½ male paprike babure, sitno nasjeckane (1,00 kn)

1 šalica sojinih ljuspica (4,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

2 žlice fino naribanog tvrdog sira, kao parmezan, Grana Padano i sl. (1,00 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina, sitno nasjeckanog (0,50 kn)

2 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,50 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

2 žlice tajlandskog slatkog chili umaka (2,00 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice dimljene crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ocijedite grah od tekućine i malo ga posušite kuhinjskim ručnikom, pa ga onda izgnječite sa gnječilicom za krumpir. Dodajte sve sastojke u pastu od graha i dobro sve promiješajte. Pustite smjesu da odstoji oko pola sata kako bi se svi okusi proželi.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Obložite protvan za pečenje masnim papirom, pa velikom žlicom (ili velikom žlicom za sladoled, ako ju imate) grabite smjesu na protvan. Rukama nježno pritisnite smjesu da biste formirali burgere. Pecite oko 25-30 minuta, dok burgeri ne budu hrskavi i ne dobiju lijepu zlatno-smeđu boju.
