Artichoke Chia Burger
Try this protein-rich vegetable patty either tucked inside of a wrap or atop a toasted bun and serve it with vegan aoili, fresh arugula and extra shallots to enhance its natural flavors.
1 Tbsp Olive Oil, plus extra for cooking
½ cup minced Shallots
4 cloves Garlic, minced
3 Tbsp yellow Miso
1 cup Navitas Organics Whole Cashew Nuts
2 Tbsp Navitas Organics Chia Powder
¼ cup Rolled Oats
1 15-ounce can Great Northern Beans, drained
5 jarred Artichoke Hearts, squeezed to remove excess moisture and chopped
Warm the oil in a small saute pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 2-3 minutes, to soften. Add the garlic and cook for 30 minutes longer. Remove from heat and transfer the pan contents to a food processor. Add the miso, Cashews, Chia Powder and oats, and process until the Cashews are broken down into small bits. Add the beans and artichoke hearts, and process again until the mixture starts to stick together, while leaving plenty of texture. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Form the mixture into 6 compact patties. Warm a little oil in a saute pan over medium-low heat, and saute for a few minutes on each side until browned. Serve warm.
Makes 6 patties
