½cupgrated parmesan cheese
1cupcooked and cooled brown rice
1tspgarlic powderyou could also roast 1 clove of garlic with the veggies if you prefer, then mince
salt and pepper
2tbspoilplus extra for frying
In a large bowl toss mushrooms, carrot, onion, and broccoli, with 2 tbsp of oil, pinch of salt, pinch of pepper and scatter on a large sheet pan covered in foil.
Roast the veggies at 400F for about 25-30 mins or until they start to get golden.
While the veggies are roasting we will grate and squeeze the excess moisture out of the zucchini, and set aside.
Next let's drain the black beans and mash in a large bowl with a fork, or potato masher.
Chop up your nuts into little bits. Add to large bowl. (do not mix)
Add the zucchini to the bowl. (do not mix)
Chop your spinach and parsley into little bits. Add to large bowl. (do not mix)
Once the veggies finish roasting, using a spatula, scrape all the veggies down onto a cutting board and chop everything to little bits. If you have a food processor, you could also pulse until they’re minced together. Add to bowl.
To the bowl, add remaining spices, bread crumbs, whisked eggs, parmesan cheese, tomato paste, balsamic and spices
Gently mix then form into patties, you should probably get about 8. Do not overmix, we want them to form, but also to remain nice and tender. Chill in the fridge.
COOKING STOVE TOP:
Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a frying pan or skillet on medium to medium high and fry gently on each side, about 3-4 mins on each side until crispy. Drain on a paper towel, dress your buns then serve!
COOKING ON THE BBQ:
Cook cold, straight from fridge. Brush BBQ and Veggie patties with oil. Heat BBQ to medium high. Cook 4 minutes each side until a nice dark crust forms.
