  • Love to print out recipes I would like to try but these are not printer friendly. The ideal printout has a colored picture with the recipe on one page if possible.

  • Great question! We’ve updated the instructions to include what to do with the mixture after blended.

  • Yes, this recipe can be made in the FourSide and WildSide jar. Simply double the recipe and follow the instructions. In between each blending time, use a rubber scraper to push the food down from the sides of the jar to the blade. More or less time may be required for blending. Blend until the texture is chunky and paste-like so that a patty may be formed.

  • Can this be made in wildside or four sided jar?

  • It is steps 5 and 6 in the instructions above: "Form a patty with blended mixture. Heat a greased pan over medium to medium high heat and cook both sides of the patty until heated through. Serve with your favorite burger toppings."

  • Thats great, where is the up date on this site for the recipe?

    Jim on

  • Is ther something I can substitute for corn and rice. My husband has many food allergies any corn or rice products are two of them, but I would love veggie burger recipes.

  • I cannot recommend this recipe in a Wild Side jar. After doubling, this came out thin like hummus. Definitely not able to use as a patty.

  • Both the corn and rice provide starch that helps hold the burgers together. They can be substituted for other starchy foods like potatoes, oats, quinoa, etc. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • You can either leave it out or substitute with more of another vegetable in the recipe. :)

  • Is there something I can substitute for mushrooms? My husband dislikes mushrooms.

    DJCJ on

  • I just made this on Saturday and it turned out great! Some recommendations for those having trouble with the consistency/forming patties:

    1-try adding chia seeds/extra flax
    2-use a wooden/plastic spoon to scoop the mixture around so that it’s more uniformly mixed after every couple of pulses
    3-stop blending all the ingredients together when they are still al little chunky
    4-put all ingredients in a large bowl, scoop a hole in the middle and place in the fridge/freezer for 10-20 minutes until mixture is cooled down-this really helps with the patty forming process
    5-make smaller patties-if you try and make larger ones it’s easier for them to fall apart when you flip them

    Success: if you are not averse to adding eggs I recommend adding 2 per jar-specific recommendation (if you are following the recipe for use with the Wild Side Jar, as I did, use 4 eggs). Add the eggs AFTER the mixture is cool, mix it all together with your hands then roll into patties and cook-they turned out perfect every time after I added eggs :)

    Replaced with-more beans & corn (portions equal to mushroom portion the recipe calls for)

    Replaced with-freshly cooked quinoa

    Replaced with-chia (used 2 tbsp for the Wild Side Jar doubled recipe version)

    Happy blending!

  • When will you be offering a discount on your Twister Jar? I missed the last promotion by a couple of days.

  • This was fantastic instead of ordering burger deals. I served it with homemade chipotle hummus with lots of cayenne pepper mixed in. Really good!

    Maheen Jafri on

  • Recipe could be improved by adding instructions for how to use the batter after it comes out of the blender. Do you form it and slap it on the grill, or run it through a dehydrator or what?
