Veggie Burgers

Three of my kids love meat burgers.  Two do not eat burgers at all.  Some nights I am craving a delicious veggie burger and this one hits the spot.  It is full of protein and vegetables.  I usually have it on a bed of lettuce.  You can of course also put one of these on a bun.  Add some grilled onions and you have an awesome meal!!

Sara's Veggie Burgers
one can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup dry quinoa, cook as directed on your package
1/2 cup oats, ground fine
1/2 an onion diced
4 small mushrooms diced
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1/2 t garlic powder
1/4 t salt
1 egg or a vegan egg substitute

Put your rinsed and dried chickpeas into the food processor.  Pulse until the chickpeas are in small pieces. Begin to saute the onion, mushroom and carrots in a saute pan.
Add the oat flour to your chickpeas. Pulse.
Add garlic powder, salt and 1 egg or egg substitute.
Add in the sauteed vegetables.
Pulse all the ingredients until combined.
Make into patties and fry in a saute pan 4-5 minutes per side.
