i've tried the taco mix and the one they named  nature's burger.   we had the taco mix tonight and it is good.  the burger mix goes good with italian things and as a patty.  has some garlic in it.

thanks for the websites i will check them out.  sounds like what i am looking for.

Homemade Natue Burgers September 20, 2006 4:40 PM

Here's a homemade (and MUCH less expensive) version of the
"Nature's Burger" type mix.


1/2 c. dry chickpeas
1/2 c. dry soybeans
1/2 c. dry lentils
1/2 c. yellow split peas
1/2 c. brown rice
1/2 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 c. cornmeal
1-1/2 T baking soda
seasonings of your choice (see note)

Put the ingredients 1-2 at a time in a blender, turn the blender on, and RUN FOR COVER (this is pretty noisy (g)).  When everything is in powdered form, combine in a tupperware container and store in the fridge.  Makes 4 cups of mix.

To make burgers, combine 1 c. burger mix and 2/3 c. HOT liquid (see note 2) and let sit for 15 minutes.  On a plate, form into 3 thin patties.  Use a spatula to move patties onto a nonstick-sprayed skillet and cook on both sides until lightly browned.  Serve with your favorite burger fixins.

Note - Seasonings:  You can use the herbs and/or spices of your choice, or consider using a dry soup mix run through the blender (I'll bet onion would be good).  Also, try a dry FF salad dressing mix.  Or a veggie boullion cube run through the blender.  Other suggestions:  onion powder,  garlic powder, lemon pepper, basil, etc.

Note - Liquids:  Try 1/3 c. water and 1/3 c. barbeque sauce - combine and heat until hot, add to dry mix (note that burgers made with barbeque sauce will brown more quickly, so watch them!).  Or try half water, half tomato juice. Try to make sure that your liquids and seasonings have compatible flavors.

Other suggestions:  The possibilities here are

Oriental: Burger mix with a little soy sauce in the liquid and some fresh ginger added to the mix, maybe a dash of rice wine.

Spanish: Cumin, red pepper, chili powder, or a dry taco seasoning mix.

Indian: Curry powder added to the mix.

Wine/garlic: Chopped garlic added to the mix, half water and half white wine for the liquid.

Potpourri:  Make a batch of plain, unseasoned burger mix and add whatever seasonings strike your fancy as you're mixing it up!  No need to commit to just one flavor for the whole batch!
