Okara Veggie Burgers (Vegan)

Posted by Jennifer (The RD)

This is an extermely inexpensive way to eat a veggie burger.   You can make these burgers for a fraction of the cost of regular veggie burgers.  I came up with this recipe because students in my vegetarian course were complaining about the cost of vegetarian convenience items.  I used okara, which is the pulpy fiber that remains after making soy milk.  I usually buy it at Marukai in Gardena, but I heard it is also at Meiji Tofu, also in Gardena.  Recently, I bought a small bag at Tozai foods in Rosemead. Sometimes I use 25% dried Okara (bought in the package) amd 75% fresh okara because the addition of dried okara  seems to help the burger bind a little better.

Ingerdients

  • 2 cups okara (soybean pulp  I buy it at Marukai in Gardena)
  • ½ cup steel cut oats
  • ½ cup diced veggies (I used mixed colored bell peppers)
  • 2 TB imitation bacon bits (optional)
  • ¼ Cup plus 2 TB Teriyaki sauce (I used Soy Vay)
  • ¼ cup water

Combine all ingredients and press firmly into patties;  place on a lightly greased baking pan and bake at 350 degrees – approximately 15 minutes on each side.  Since these burgers contain no egg, they are somewhat fragile, so be careful when turning them.
