How to Make Gardenburger


  1. Add the boiling water to the bulgur wheat in a small bowl and let sit for
    about an hour. The wheat will swell to about double in size. Steam the
    quartered mushrooms for about ten minutes or until tender. Remove and steam
    onions for about ten minutes or until they become translucent. Keep these
    two ingredients separated and set them aside. Add 1/2 cup water to the oats
    and let them soak for about ten minutes. Drain any excess water from the
    bulgur wheat and oats, then combine the grains with the mushrooms, rice,
    cheeses and spices in a food processor and pulse four or five times until
    ingredients are chopped fine but not pureed. Pour the mixture in a bowl and
    add the steamed onion and cornstarch, blending well.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray a large skillet with olive oil cooking
    spray and place it over medium−low heat. Measure a 1/2 cup of the patty
    mixture at a time into the pan and shape with a spoon into a 3" round patty
    that is about 1/2" thick. Cook for two to four minutes per side or until
    light brown on the surface. When all of the patties have been browned,
    arrange them on a lightly sprayed baking sheet and bake them for 20 to 25
    minutes in the oven. Be sure to turn them over halfway through the cooking
    time. Patties may be frozen once they have cooled.
