Apple Burgers

My husband found this recipe somewhere when we first went vegetarian (2 years ago) and we still love it.
I will say that the patties don't stay together very well. This last time I made it, I blended the onions in a little food processor and I think that because it was more blended, it helped. But still, most of the patties do fall apart. If any of you try the recipe and can find a way to keep the patties together, let me know!!!

2 tart apples
1 Cup- onion (minced)
2 Cups- bread crumbs
1 Green Pepper (chopped)
1 Tsp Fresh ginger (minced)
2 Cups rice
6 Tsp rolled oats (ground up)
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 Tsp vegetable oil

1. Grate apples and try to squeeze the juice out with a paper towel, place in a bowl with onions, bread crumbs, green pepper, ginger, rice, 3 Tsp oats, salt and pepper
2. Heat oil in pan (medium heat)
3. Shape the mixture into patties (add more bread crumbs if needed) and coat with the remaining 3 Tsp of oats
4. Fry

Note: I serve with veganaise, catsup and lettuce. My husband prefers BBQ sauce :) Both ways are yummy.

  1. Have you tried adding a binding agent like egg or flaxseed meal with water?
