Who doesn't enjoy a nice juicy Burger or a plate full of spicy Bar-B-Qued Ribs?
As long as it's not the made with cow or pig,
 I'm happy to chomp down on these old favorites...

Looking forward to trying out your favorite "Meatless Meat" recipes,
so post them right here.


¾ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
¾ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 Tbs fresh lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced

2½ cups canned garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
4 large eggs
½ tsp sea salt
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 small onion, chopped
zest of one lemon
¾ cup frozen peas
1 cup toasted whole-grain bread crumbs
cooking spray or olive oil
burger buns
desired toppings (sprouts, grilled vegetables, tomato, etc.)

1. Prepare mayonnaise: Combine all mayonnaise ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Scrape into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

2. Prepare burgers: In a food processor, combine garbanzo beans, eggs and salt. Puree until thick (the consistency of thick & chunky hummus is what you’re looking for).

3. Scrape into a medium bowl and mix in cilantro, onion, lemon zest and peas. Add breadcrumbs and then let sit for a few minutes so the mixture has a chance to moisten the breadcrumbs. The resulting mixture should be one that is moist enough to form into patties. If it’s too dry, simply add a couple of Tablespoons of water or egg, and if it’s too wet just add a few more breadcrumbs.

4. Divide mixture into 6 parts and form into six burgers. You can prepare the burgers ahead of time to this point (place on a rimmed baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap & refrigerate until ready to

5. Spray cooking spray (or add olive oil) in large skillet and heat to medium. Add 3 patties, cover and cook for 7 to 10 minutes or until bottoms are browned. Flip patties and cook for another 7 minutes on the other side. Top with cheese at the end of cooking, if you wish! Repeat with remaining three patties.

6. Toast buns and add favorite toppings.

Yield: 6

Cooking Tips
*Buy whole-grain buns for the burgers and just use a couple of them to grind in the food processor for the crumbs that you’ll need. Thenspread them on a rimmed baking sheet and toast in the oven until

Baby-Get-Back Veggie Ribs

2 8-oz. packages bean curd stick (available at most Asian markets; be sure to ask for bean curd stick, rather than bean curd sheets)

2 Tbsp. warm melted margarine

1/4 cup peanut butter (or more, to taste)

2 Tbsp. miso

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

2 tsp. paprika

2 cups barbecue saucE

• Soak the bean curd in warm water for 4 to 6 hours.

• When the bean curd is softened, drain it, squeezing out the excess water, and cut into 4- to 6-inch lengths.

• In a large bowl, mix together the margarine, peanut butter, miso, nutritional yeast, and paprika to form a rich paste. If the mixture is too thick, add a teaspoon of water at a time to thin it to the desired consistency.

• Preheat the oven to 370 degrees F.

• Add the bean curd "ribs" to the paste and mix together, coating the "ribs" thoroughly.

• Place the "ribs" side by side on a large baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, turning them so that they bake evenly, until the bottoms are crisp and brown.

• Remove from the oven and using a barbecue brush, apply the barbecue sauce to the "ribs." Return the "ribs" to the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more.

It is great...must be popularized

Wonderful...I must try...is it possible to avoid oil too?

I have a few I have used:

Left Over Wild Rice and Herb Burgers:

1 cup left over rice

1 to 2 eggs

Mixed dried or fresh herbs(I use oregano, basil, parsley, garlic, pepper) about ~2 tbs, more the better.

1 tsp Hot pepper oil

Mix the above together till smooth, then add oatmeal till the smooth mix can be formed in your hand for a patty.

Fry in olive oil till brown, turn over a few times till done.

Poor Boys Fish Burger:

1 can of tuna fish

1 egg

1/4 diced dill weed

1 tsp parmasan cheese powder

1/2 cup oatmeal for as much needed to form patty.

Fry till brown, turn over a few times till done. This can also be cooked in the microwave or as dumplings.

Psudo Chicken:

1 cup high glutin flour

1 cup soy  bean flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp no MSG chicken boulion

1 egg

Spices as desired, garlic, pepper, diced cheese...

Mix powder ingredients well. Add egg, then water slowly to mix ingredients to consistency of bread dow. Add additional soy or high glutin flour till it can be hand formed. Roll our pull away and make balls/sheets/patties. Fry or bake at about 325 degrees, these will rise like small biscuits. We like them with mushroom soup, sweet and sour sauce, sour cream, or rance dressing. A little weird but they can grow on you.
