Veggie Burgers

Oh She Glows

1/4 cup onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/4 tbsp ground flax seed
1/4 cup warm filtered water
1 cup oats, processed into flour
1/2 cup carrots, cooked
1/2 cup black beans, mashed
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/4 cup almonds, chopped and toasted
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tbsp coconut aminos
3/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
sea salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, sauté onions and garlic in coconut oil. Mix your flax egg together in a small bowl by combinding the ground flaxseed with the 3 tbsp of the water and set aside for at least 10 minutes while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Place all ingredients (except spices and salt) into a large mixing bowl and stir very well. Now, add seasonings and salt to taste. With slightly wet hands, shape dough into patties. Pack dough tightly as this will help it stick together. You can fry the burgers in a bit of oil on a skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side. If baking in the oven, bake for 25 to 30 minutes (12 to 15 minutes on each side), until golden and crisp. For the BBQ, pre-bake the burgers for about 15 minutes in oven before placing on a pre-heated grill until crisp on each side. Our preferred method of cooking was frying in the skillet!!
