Recipe Ingredients for Split Pea Burgers

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 c onion, choppd
1/2 c bell pepper, chopped
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp garlic, minced
3 c vegetable broth
1 c dry split peas
1/2 c dry brown rice
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin

Recipe Directions for Split Pea Burgers

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large (4 to 6-quart) saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper along with a generous pinch of salt. Sweat for 5 minutes or until the onions are soft. Add the garlic and mushrooms and continue to cook for another 4 minutes.

  2. Add the broth, peas, rice, coriander and cumin. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Decrease heat to low, cover and cook at a simmer for 1 hour or until the rice and peas are tender.

  3. Remove from the heat and gently pour the mixture into the bowl of a food processor and process until just combined.* Do not puree. Pour this mixture into a bowl and stir in the 3/4 cup of bread crumbs. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  4. Shape the mixture into patties and dredge on each side in the remaining 1/4 cup of bread crumbs. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add 2 burgers at a time and saute until brown on each side, approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side. To grill, cook on high for 3 to 4 minutes per side as well. Serve immediately.

  5. *When blending hot liquids: Remove liquid from the heat and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. Transfer liquid to a blender or food processor and fill it no more than halfway. If using a blender, release one corner of the lid. This prevents the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Place a towel over the top of the machine, pulse a few times then process on high speed until smooth.

  6. *** I make this recipe and bake them in the oven for 10 min at 350, flipping 5 min. in. Original recipe calls for 1-2 tbsp of oil for frying/sauteing the burger.
