Bougie Burgers

To go with the Bougie Burger Bar for your Bougie Summer BBQ is Bougie Burgers! These burgers are fancy and particular, as they are vegan, gluten and grain free. They provide lots of nutrients to class us up, including mind friendly super nuts, walnuts! So pretentious, they aren’t designed for the grill. Therefore, we won’t be consuming any potential free radical damage from the open flame. Especially the Sunshine burgers that aren’t even cooked!

  • 1 tbsp TOMATO PASTE
  • 1 tbsp COCONUT SUGAR
  • 2 tbsp JERK SPICE BLEND recipe below

Instructions
 

"MEATY" MUSHROOMS

  • In stove pot, over medium heat, combine: 1 tbsp EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, 1 SWEET ONION, sliced into crescents, 1 package of CREMINI MUSHROOMS, cleaned and chopped thin, ¼ tsp GARLIC POWDER.
  • Allow to cook a few minutes stirring frequently. Add: 1 tbsp TAMARI, splash of RED WINE, 2 tbsp NUTRITIONAL YEAST, 1 cup VEGETABLE BROTH, 2 tsp TAPIOCA STARCH. Allow to boil for 1 minute, then reduce heat to simmer until liquid is reduced 25%. It takes about 10 min. Strain out the mushrooms to use for the burgers. You don't want to use the liquid for them.

JERK SPICE

  • In a jar shake: 1/4 cup ONION POWDER, 2 tbsp DRIED THYME, 1 tbsp CINNAMON, ¼ tsp GROUND NUTMEG, a little less than ⅛ tsp GROUND CLOVES, 1 tbsp SEA SALT

WALNUT FLOUR

  • In food processor, process raw walnuts till floured. Use ¼ cup for recipe.

BURGERS

  • In warm oven, dry out beans on a bare baking sheet. You just want to dry them until they aren't wet.
  • In food processor, process beans till ground. Add to a mixing bowl along with the rest of the ingredients listed.
  • Mix burger ingredients with spoon then with hands. Shape into burger patties.
  • Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes or overnight, then cook on a lightly oiled pan over medium heat. Cook until dark brown on both sides.
  • Burgers will still be delicate but they shouldn't fall apart. Look at notes for ideas to make them firmer.

Notes

These burgers are delicate.   If you want them to be firmer, add 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.
Putting in the fridge uncovered overnight after you cook them will also firm them up as they will dry out.  When ready to enjoy, just take out of fridge and bring to room temperature.
A substitution for the “Meaty” Mushrooms is to simply cook thinly sliced mushrooms until soft and add some tamari or coconut aminos to them as they cook.
