​Leftover Veggie Patties


  • 1 ½ cup cooked beans
  • ½ cup cooked veggies or raw shredded veggies
  • ½ cup cooked grains or oatmeal
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chia or ground flax seeds - (blend with ¼ cup water to create an egg like consistency to bind the burger together with)
  • Options to add:  chili powder, cumin, Thai chili or hot sauce


Mash or food-process all ingredients together until sticky. Divide mixture into patties, dampen hands with water so that batter does not to your skin. Place patties on lightly oiled OR parchment paper-covered baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven at 350°F for about 10 min on each side. Or pan fry in a saute pan, start with a small amount of sesame oil and a hot pan, cook over medium high heat, brown on both sides. *Note: The recipe can be prepared with 2 cups of grains or beans, in place of combining the two.
