What's for Dinner? In a Jiffy Spelt Veggie Burgers

These are good....really good, but be warned they are slightly addicting..I could easily eat several of them in one sitting they are that yummy!

I topped this burger with some of my Spicy Pumpkin Hummus and had it on a english muffin it was fabulous!

In A Jiffy Spelt Veggie Burgers

Oh She Glows

1 cup cooked chick peas (of beans of your choice)
1 small carrot, peeled and chopped into large pieces
1 small sweet onion, peeled and chopped up into large pieces
1/2 Red pepper, chopped into large pieces
1/4 cup spinach, washed
1/2 t dill (dried or fresh- I used fresh pureed dill)
1/2 t dried basil
1/4 t fine grain sea salt
tiny dash of cayenne
1 clove minced garlic, optional
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (so amazing in this burger!)
1 T pumpkin seeds (pepita)
1 T chia seeds
3/4 cup spelt flour (or flour of your choice)
Directions: Preheat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or spray with oil). Place all ingredients except the seeds and flour into a food processor.

Process until mixture is blended well, stopping to scrape sides if necessary.
Remove mixture and place into a large bowl. Add seeds and stir well. Now add the spelt flour (or flour of your choice) in 1/4 cup increments, stirring well until blended. Shape patties
Bake for 15 mins at 375F, flip and bake for another 10 minutes.
Makes 8 small patties. (as you can see I made 5 larger patties)

Leftover yummy... topped with dijon, lettuce, onion, cucumbers on bagel thin and a side of Parsnip fries...

If it didnt MOO OR CLUCK it DOES NOT belong between two buns..

Just sayin... :)

Thanks Cristi, I've really gotten in to pic's of food for some reason.

Aimee they are so easy and really good! I don't believe I had ever eaten a turnip until I tried these. Just slice spray with olive oil and season. Bake for maybe 20 minutes at around 400 deg. Enjoy!

Adena they are good aren't they!

Shelby, come by any time, but I guarantee it won't be "free for all" night.

John...LOL! Try it without the bun.
