Mr. Crow was in the mood for a burger and not in the mood to do dishes so we warmed up a couple Planet Burgers and added some fabulous toppings: applewood smoked mozzarella cheese from Whole Foods, sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil that we grew ourselves on the windowsill, and some whole wheat toast. It was positively luscious.

Planet Burger Recipe (adapted from Vegetarian Times)

12 oz cooked chickpeas
1 medium onion
4 oz cooked adzuki beans
1/2 cup of almonds
1/4 cup Braggs liquid aminos
2 eggs
3 cups cooked brown rice
1 meduim carrot, shredded
1/3 cup roasted, unsalted sunflower seeds
1/3 cup dried parsley
1 tsp. Dried thyme

Put the first 6 ingredients in the food processor and pulse until smooth. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and form into patties. Easy-peasy.

The recipe in VT said it makes 9 burgers but I got 13 out of it. I put mine on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper in the freezer for an hour or so to solidify and then retired them to a giant freezer bag for safe keeping. Any time I want one I just defrost it a bit in the microwave and then crisp it up in a frying pan.
