  • elineli07


  • 1 Package Trader Joe's soy ground beef

  • 1 small onion or shallots

  • 2 minced cloves of garlic

  • 2 tsp each onion powder and garlic powder

  • 1 Tbsp light mayonnaise

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 Tbsp flax meal

  • 1.5 Tbsp quick cooking oats

  • 2 Tbsp plain panko breadcrumbs

  • 1 Tbsp balsamic Good Seasons dressing

  • ΒΌ cup frozen spinach, thawed, and squeezed

  • 1 Tbsp chopped parsley

  1. Finely chop the onion/shallot, & add to a saute pan with olive oil. Add the minced garlic with the onion, salt & pepper.

  2. While sauteeing, add the binders (egg, mayo, flax, oats, & panko) to the ground soy beef in a bowl. Add the spices, parsley, spinach, & cooled onion/garlic mixture. I use some balsamic Good Seasons dressing for flavor, about 1/2 tbsp. or so directly in

  3. Mix well with your hand, incorporating all the ingredients together. It's crucial to use a few binders, as the soy ground beef isn't as "sticky" as meat, so you need to really pack it in. If you find it isn't coming together in a consistency good enough for burgers, add more mayo or Panko.

  4. Make 8 patties, tightly packed. Heat a thin layer of canola oil in a large saute pan. When hot, add the patties. Once you put them in, don't move them around, or they'll fall apart.Let them cook a few minutes, until browned, & then slowly flip them with 2 metal spoons.

  5. Make the guacamole: mash an avocado with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, lime juice, finely chopped dill, & a little light mayonnaise.

  6. Toast the slider buns, spread a thin layer of guacamole on the bottom bun, top with a burger, dollop a little more guacamole on top to secure the toppings- shredded lettuce, pickle, red onion, whatever you're feeling. Top with the top bun & push down.

I am a very picky vegetarian and I made this recipe, it is AMAZING!!!! I couldn't stop eating them. The best part: TASTES LIKE REAL MEAT!!!! I gave one to my husband who HATES anything soy and he didn't know the difference!!! Definitely a staple in my home now! And once you form the soy patties, before you fry them, you can freeze them!
