Banana Burgers

A very unique take on veggie burgers that uses bananas and chia seeds as the superfood emulsifying agents to bind the burgers together.

Banana Burgers

Course: Dinner
Difficulty: Medium
Serves: 4
Active time: 1.5 hrs

Ingredients

  • 1 banana
  • 1.5 cup of corn 
  • 1 cup of chopped tofu
  • 1 cup of steamed cauliflower
  • 1 cup of chopped mushrooms
  • 1 cup of black beans
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 avocado (for topping)

Directions

  1. STEAM CAULIFLOWER: Steam the cauliflower for about 15 minutes.
  2. BLEND INGREDIENTS: Combine steamed cauliflower, tofu, and chia seeds in the blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. MIX OTHER INGREDIENTS: Mix mushrooms, corn, and seasonings together in a large bowl. Mash the black beans and stir them in to the bowl. Mash the banana and stir it into the bowl.
  4. COMBINE BOTH MIXTURES: Pour the cauliflower-tofu mixture in and stir everything together.
  5. BAKE BURGERS: Very lightly coat a baking sheet with oil and form burger shapes on the sheet. Bake at 405 degrees for about 40 minutes or until they hold together firmly. I then put them on the grill for 3-5 minutes, but that step is not necessary.
  6. GARNISH: Top with grilled bananas, avocado, hot sauce, and any other toppings! If you are feeling unsure about the bananas, just trust me.
