Zen and the art of Veggie Burgers
It was not until sugar and oil and meat became easily accessible that people started getting fat. A plant-based, low-fat / slow-carb diet is the only diet that's been shown to reverse heart disease.

Umami is the flavor of protein.
  • Sea weed flakes (Dulse is the best)
  • Soy sauce.
  • Mushrooms.
  • Umiboshi vinegar (salt and Umami flavor)
  • Caramelized Onion or Carrot
  • Sauerkraut. (topping)
  • Walnuts.
  • Beer! (a dark bitter brew)
  • Yeast flakes.

Fat is the mysterious sixth flavor/ texture
  • Olive oil and toasted Sesame oil.
  • Cheese aged: Cheddar, Parmesan, Gorgonzola, etc.
  • oily nuts like Walnuts.
  • Sesame (butter) Tahini
Holding it together
Make it thick then add some moisture absorbent material. If it still too wet bake them; may not even need binder.

Augar-augar may work and they tell me that thick cooking liquid from garbanzo beans will help it stick together. And chick pea flour will help dry out the mixture with out adding too much carbohydrates. A little Gluten would work the best, but there are so many people inexplicably afraid of it! Eggs always work well.

  • Bulgur wheat or Coconut flour (to suck up extra juices).
  • Quinoa, Millet, (optional) cooked then fried dryish.
  • Beans (soft enough to mash) Garbanzo bean flour (easiest) Pinto or black beans, lintels, you could even use Tofu.
  • Beet? Shredded and steamed?
  • Garlic, Cumin, Cilantro, Basil, Tarragon?
  • Ground cashews or other nuts? (adds sweetness and oily chewy texture)
  • LIME juice or Vinegar? (tartness) Balsamic or White wine
  • Dried onion flakes or caramelized fresh onion
  • Celery seed? Tomato paste?
  • Tamari or Umiboshi vinegar
  • Maple (flavor toasted Fenugreek seed)
  • Smoke~ (liquid or Chipotle powder)!
  • Dark bitter Beer!
  • Spinach
  • Mushrooms (Chewy texture)
  • Hemp Hearts (hulled seeds good texture, low carb-high fiber)

Mix to a sticky mess and fry or bake. High heat oil like Peanut oil? Baking parchment paper?

If u must use canned beans, at least find a can that does not use epoxy and other chemicals for the inside coating.
