The Perfect Buckwheat Burgers with Roasted Veggies

October 14, 2013

Author Notes: You can soak buckwheat grains, blend them, strain them off and then make the burgers... OR you can use what´s left after making your buckwheat milk :) This is what I normally do :) Ausra de Araujo

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Soaked buckwheat grains
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Water
  • 1 clove of Garlic
  • 1/2 Small Onion, fresh & pureed
  • Black pepper & Sea Salt to taste
  • Fresh chopped herbs of your taste
  • Olive oil to spray
In This Recipe

Directions

  1. Blend your grains, soaked overnight. Strain.
  2. Mix flax seeds with water until thick.
  3. Pour into the buckwheat paste. Add salt, pepper, herbs, grated garlic & pureed onion.
  4. Form burgers. You might need to squeeze them a little bit to make sure they stay "in shape" :)
  5. Spray the baking sheet with olive oil. Place the burgers. Bake them for 25-30min @ 350F (180ºC)
  6. My husband loves them with a Greek Tzatziki (natural yogurt, garlic, cucumber dip). I keep it vegan & serve beautifully with roasted vegetables.

Ah, I can see that the raw groats would make bitter “milk” and burgers. I'm glad you clarified. I'm going to get some toasted (kasi) : ) today. <br />You can't sprout the toasted ones; they have to be raw. And they are so yummy! They lose their bitterness when they start to sprout. Noone is a fake healthy one – LoL. We're all learning together : ) <br />Thanks for the “milk” recipes! Looking forward to trying those too!

I have sprouted them (raw ones) once. Please, tell me, what do you do with them after? I did and immediately ran out of ideas for further consumption :)))

Hi Ausra,<br />Do you blend the grains in the food processor before soaking, or do you soak them and then process after draining off soaking liquid? Or do you process them with the soaking liquid? How much water do you soak them in? <br />Thanks! <br />Denice

Hello Denice, Sorry my late reply (holi-days, lazy-days:)<br />I make these burgers after making my Buckwheat milk. So I soak 1cup of grains in 3cups of water (washed grains before soaking). I blend it all, then strain and squeeze till almost dry. No water is needed in forming the burgers. These are very delicious, easy and so in handy to use all the "milk" leftovers. I hope you will like them! XXX

Thanks for the reply! It makes sense now that you explained it. I've never heard of buckwheat “milk” but I'm excited to try that as well. I love sprouted buckwheat so I think I'll like the milk too. I can't wait to try the burgers! yum-E!<br />I'm guessing you use the raw groats, not the toasted “kashi”?

Oh, Ooops, I misspelled. It should be "Kasha" not Kashi

My favorite way to eat them is as porridge. I drain them off and put a quarter to a half a cup in a microwavable bowl, add a little milk (dairy or otherwise) sweetener (I like a few grains of raw cane sugar or coconut sugar) Heat on high in the microwave for 30-60 seconds. Top with fruit if desired.<br />Put them in salads, top cooked rice or other grains with them. Put in smoothies or yogurt / kefir.<br />Although I've not tried it, Sprouted Buckwheat Hummus is apparently delicious.
