  • 4 cups cooked soy beans (unsalteed) 640g
  • 3 Tbsp beans brine
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp cornstarch
  1. Peel and chop the onion. Sauté it in a pan with a little oil until it is cooked.

  2. Process the soybeans together with the liquid until you have a paste. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until integrated. The mixture should be smooth, without bits of beans. A bit sticky but should be moldable. If it is very soft, cool for a few minutes before forming the patties.

  3. Form 6 discs of about 110g, about 7 cm in diameter by 1.5 cm in high. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze in a ziploc type freezer bag are plastic freezer dividers between each hamburger for up to 3 months.

  4. To cook them, freshly made or straight from the freezer, heat a nonstick skillet with a little sunflower or coconut oil. Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, turn and cook another 2-3 minutes. Eat as a hamburger with your favorite ingredients (guacamole, sprouts, arugula and tomato for me!) Or with salad or mashed potatoes!
