Artichoke Spinach Cauliflower Bean Burgers. Grill-able Vegan Veggie Burger Recipe.

Continuing with the Spinach Artichoke and Cauliflower combinations. From Lasagna to Burger!

This burger has Great Northern Beans, artichokes, spinach, oats, cauliflower, carrots, spices. and the Awesome part of all is that these patties are Grillable! To make them sustain the grilling, either freeze them a bit or par-bake. Put some beautiful grill marks, add your favorite toppings and serve! 

Most of the burgers on the blog can be grilled the same way. Mash the burger patty ingredients well, pack them through a cookie cutter. Freeze, or bake for half the time given and grill them on the grill. The key to a grill-able burger is a- less chopped ingredients. The chopped onions, greens etc cause the patty to not stick together as well. so process them or add finely minced ingredients. b- well mashed burger, so the beans are not chunky and lead to a crumbly burger. c- flax or chia eggs to bind, or flax/chia seeds to absorb the excess moisture. Grill away!

The beans get all mashed up, the cauliflower, carrots and cashews add texture and creamy flavor profile to the burger, the nutritional yeast makes it cheesy and the mustard just makes it awesome!

Artichoke Spinach Cauliflower Bean Burgers
Allergen Information: Free of Dairy, egg, corn, soy. Can be made nut-free and gluten-free

Makes 6 to 7 patties 3.5 inch patties

1 15 oz can great northern beans like Eden Organic, or other white beans, or 1.5 cups cooked
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup spinach
5  to 6 artichoke hearts, I used canned
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 to 1/2 tsp black pepper 
1/4 tsp cayenne
4 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup chopped white or red onion
2 Tbsp flax seed meal or Chia Seeds ( I used  1 Tbsp flax and 1 Tbsp chia)
1 tsp italian herb blend
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
2 tsp prepared mustard
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
3/4 cup small cauliflower florets
1/3 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup cashews or use seeds to make nut-free
1/4 cup breadcrumbs or oat flour or chickpea flour

In a food processor, process all the ingredients from beans till cumin powder until most of the beans are mashed. Move to a bowl. Add mustard, olive oil, lemon juice and nutritional yeast and mix.
In the processor, process cauliflower, carrots and cashews until crumbs. Add to the bowl and mix well. 
Add breadcrumbs and mix. Use less or more crumbs/flour to get a soft and not too wet, but also not crumbly mixture. Shape into patties by packing into a 3.5 inch cookie cutter. Place on parchment lined sheet. 
3 options to cook the patties. 
1. freeze and grill. Freeze patties for 15 minutes. Spray oil on the patties. The patties get well set when chilled. Grill frozen patties for 3 to 4 minutes each side. 
2. Par-bake and grill. Bake the patties for 20 minutes at pre-heated 400 degree F. Grill the par-baked patties also for 3 to 4 minutes each side. Refrigerate until ready to grill, if grilling later.
3. Bake the patties: Bake at pre-heated 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, then flip the patties and bake for 10-15 minutes. 
I served these with Tahini sauce, cucumbers, sriracha and tomato. Some caramelized onions, spicy chipotle ranch/mayo sauce,  vegan cheese slices, pickles, ketchup, mustard etc would work beautifully as well. For Chipotle Ranch, add chipotle pepper powder to taste to this ranch sauce.

For Variations: Use other beans, add vegan cheese shreds to the patties, add a chipotle pepper and adobo sauce in the first step.

    Trying to decide between this one and your red lentil cauliflower burger to take to the Memorial Day Party we’re going to. Never made either of them. Which one is easier/better for grilling? Thanks! -Laura

    Glorious combination of flavors! I almost never eat veggie burgers these days since they all seem the same, but this one definitely stands out from the crowd. I adore the artichoke, spinach, and white bean base. It sounds lighter, fresher than the norm, while still being substantial and filling.

    I had everything in the house for this recipe. Just made them and ate one for lunch and it was awesome. Nutritious as well. Lots of veggies. Loved it. Thank you! (I used cooked black-eyed peas which I had in the fridge.). Thank you. Marie.

    I’ve never tried using a cookie cutter. I may have to see how that goes. Usually I use a big cookie scoop to get a consistent amount each time, and then form the patties with my hands.

      great! i like using the cookie cutter as it takes less time and packing it in is easier. the burgers then look all even too. :)

      shape and freeze them Freeze individually on a baking tray first, then you can pack them up with parchment in between, else they might stick to each other. thaw and grill.
