This is one of our favorite sprout recipes. It's cooked but it is soooo good we don't care.

The Tastiest Vegetable Burger Ever! Eat More Sprouts!

Ingredients:

OR Mix your own....

AND

  • 1 tsp. salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbs. corn, sunflower or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup flour, or cracker crumbs, or panko
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs - slightly beaten
  • 2-3 scallions - finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1 Tbs. fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dried thyme

Preparation:

  • Chop the Sprouts up - finely, or grind them in a food processor.
  • Mix all the ingredients together. Shape into thin (1/4 inch) patties.
  • Heat pan (cast iron works very well) over medium-high heat for a minute.
  • Add oil and heat for a minute or so - until almost smoking.
  • Place patties in pan. Brown lightly on each side.
  • Garnish to your liking.
  • Serve on bread, bun or none.
  • Eat 'em up yum!

Notes:

  • If using cracker crumbs or panko, add them just before cooking to retain their crunch.
  • You may freeze these burgers if you like.
  • Separate un-cooked patties with wax paper and seal in a plastic bag.
  • Freeze.
  • * Always use the denser bean sprouts (all but 'big thick' Mung Sprouts) as your main sprout - Mungs alone will not work well unless they are small (2 day) sprouts.
