Creamy, salty, with a nice pan-crisped crust–these veggie burgers are a nice change from the everyday
2 cans white beans (cannellini or Great Northern)
1/2 of a medium onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon each garlic powder, dried dill, and dried oregano
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
6 ounces green or black olives, drained
1-2 cups bread crumbs
1-2 Tablespoons oil
Rinse and drain the beans, then pulse the beans, onion, seasonings, and olives in a food processor until it’s a chunky paste.
Add the feta and breads crumbs and pulse four or five times.
Add more bread crumbs as necessary to stiffen the paste enough to form it into patties.
In a frying pan, heat a few teaspoons of oil (whatever kind you like) on cook the patties over medium heat for a few minutes on each side. You want a golden crust.
Serve on a bed of lettuce with your favorite dressing, or on good sandwich buns with your favorite toppings.
I find that I don’t need to add salt because it’s already in the beans and the feta, but feel free to add salt if you think it needs some.
