Wheat Berry Burgers

I used khorasan wheat berries, which are a long, thin, highly nutritional variety, but any wheat berries will work. To cook them, try my recipe for Casserole-Ready Wheat Berries.

Makes 8 medium burgers.

Ingredients:

  • 2 c cooked wheat berries
  • 1 c carrot, finely grated
  • 1 c green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 c whole wheat flour
  • 2-3 Tbsp oil for grilling

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, grind the wheat berries until fine. Add the carrot, green onions, garlic, salt, pepper, eggs and flour. Process until a thick dough forms.
  2. Using hands, shape mixture into 8 patties while preheating a griddle or large skillet on medium.
  3. Coat the frying surface with oil. Working in 1-3 batches, fry patties until brown on both sides (3-4 minutes per side). Serve on hamburger buns with all the trimmings.
