This recipe makes four vegan burgers. You can freeze them and reheat them later, so they’re perfect for people who want to make their own veggie fast foods at home. These burgers are easy to make and cost about $5 per batch! We like to serve them with ketchup or barbecue sauce, but you can also try other toppings depending on what you like.

Ingredients: 2 cups chickpeas, ½ cup brown rice flour, 1/3 cup sweet corn kernels (frozen), 3 tablespoons chopped red onion, 4 teaspoons garlic paste, ¼ teaspoon dried oregano leaves, ¼ teaspoon ground cumin, salt and black pepper to taste.

Instructions: 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a food processor, mash the chickpeas until they’re almost paste-like. Add in the brown rice flour, corn kernels, red onion, garlic paste, oregano leaves, cumin, salt and black pepper. Mix until all of the ingredients are well combined.

3. Shape the mixture into four burgers and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes or until they’re firm and cooked through. Enjoy!

Cabbage Rolls Recipe

It’s not always easy to get kids to eat their vegetables, but these cabbage rolls are an exception. This recipe makes about six servings, so you can serve it at home with your family or bring it to work for lunch! We suggest serving these cabbage rolls with a cup of brown rice or quinoa on the side for extra nutrients.

Ingredients: 6 large cabbage leaves, 1 cup uncooked brown rice, 1 cup cooked lentils, ¼ cup chopped onion, 2 cloves garlic, 1 tablespoon fresh parsley leaves, 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, ½ teaspoon ground cumin, salt and black pepper to taste.

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray a large baking dish with cooking oil.

2. In a food processor, mash the brown rice until it’s almost mashed potatoes-like inconsistency. Add in all of the remaining ingredients except for the cabbage leaves and mix until well combined.

3. Place about two spoonfuls of the mixture onto each cabbage leaf and roll them tightly like burritos. Seal each roll by wrapping kitchen twine around them.

4. Place the cabbage rolls in the prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until they’re cooked through.

These are just a few examples of veggie-based recipes that can be used as fast food alternatives. There are plenty of other recipes out there, so be sure to experiment until you find one that you like best! And remember, you can always adapt these recipes to fit your own taste preferences. For example, if you don’t like lentils, try using another type of bean in the cabbage rolls recipe. The possibilities are endless!
