split pea burgers

April 9, 2009

before i get to lunch/dinner.  uh, linner? these were my snacks:



so gross. i had a bite and tossed it. 39 cents i’ll never see again.

and now onto the much awaited split pea burgers!

i followed this alton brown good eats recipe which was on the “veggie eats” episode that i borrowed from the library. have i told you how obsessed i am with my local library? my subs were whole wheat bread crumbs and 2 cups veg broth + 1 cup water…instead of all broth cus obviously i ran out of veg broth.

not exactly the prettiest food…but delicioso. here are some pics.

sweating the veggies (onion, bell pepper, mushroom, garlic):


add in split peas, rice, broth, seasonings. bring to boil, then simmer one hour:


the cooked mixture was really good. sample and season accordingly. this is what your burgers gonna taste like. so make sure you like it.


give it a couple pulses in the food processor/blender/knock-off magic bullet, then combine w/ bread crumbs:


let the mixture set for a bit in the fridge, then form patties and coat in more bread crumbs:


brown on both sides:


and enjoy!




i thought these tasted an awful like the inside of korrokaes. which is a very good thing. tom ate two.

i hope you guys give the recipe a try. if you like dr.praeger’s type mushy veggie burgers, then you’ll love these.

    The burgers look great. I think the problem the burgers I make is I don’t have a blender, so the ingredients don’t get squished enough.

    Those burgs look good. I’m not too keen on mush though, so maybe broiling would do the trick?
