Thai-style Mung Bean Burgers

Submitted by: FRENCHIFAL

Introduction

This recipe is from Joulebody - I found it here: http://www.spaweekblog.com/2012/08/10/spa-
recipe-mung-bean-burger-from-joulebody/

The original recipe made 4 burger patties - I ended up with 5 altogether. Nutritional info for 5 patties - if you only get 4 patties, then each one would be 1.25 servings.

Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1 cup mung beans, cooked
    1/2 cup quinoa, cooked, drained well
    2 tbsp. coconut oil
    1/4 cup coconut flakes
    3 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
    1-2 garlic cloves
    2 tbsp. flax seed
    1.5 tbsp. cumin
    1 lime, for zest and juice
    (1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper, optional)
    Salt and pepper to taste

Tips

Before serving, squeeze some fresh lime juice on top of the burger for a clean burst of flavor.

As a suggestion, these patties are great topped with some thin slices of red onion and avocado in between iceberg lettuce/kale/collard greens.


Directions

Preheat oven to 325F.

Place cooked mung beans, garlic, flax seed, cumin, and the zest of one lime into a food processor. Mix until well blended, about 1 minute. Once processed, move bean mixture into a medium or large bowl.

Add quinoa, coconut flake, cilantro, coconut oil, and 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of black pepper. Combine with either your hands or large spoon until well blended.

On a nonstick baking sheet or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, divide mix into 4 portions and bake until there is some browning and a few small cracks appear on the tops of the burgers, about 25 minutes.

Serving Size: Makes 4-5 burger patties

Number of Servings: 5
