Apparently hell hath frozen over.
I am finally posting the recipe for these Apple Burgers after talking about them, taunting you (and myself) for
weeks months, and then not having a decent camera to document their gloriousness.
Hey. At least I got it up in time to celebrate the official beginning of summer and the beginning of burger season.
Enjoy it. Devour it. Make it every night this week, for all I care. Just make sure you have a great Memorial Day, m’kay.
- 1 granny smith apple grated
- 1 15-oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/2 cup onion chopped
- 1 cup panko or bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup ground flax meal
- 1 tbs dried parsley
- 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
- cooking oil
Grate apple (I did with skin still on, though you could always peel the apple first and then grate). Squeeze out juice, reserving liquid and set aside.
In food processor, pulse cannellini beans and reserved apple juice (approximately 2 tbs) until smooth.
Combine bean puree, grated apple, onions, and remaining ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
Form mixture into patties.
Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Cook on each side for 3-5 minutes, until lightly browned.
Serve atop your favorite bun, with your favorite accoutrements, and with a heaping side of veggies.
