split pea burgers
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:
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.
