Meatless Monday with Vegan Vegetable Samosa Burger

Welcome (back) to the Miratel blog for another edition of our Meatless Monday  vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

There is nothing like a good burger and there is nothing like a good samosa so how can you go wrong putting them together? This inspired recipe is truly a fusion of two classic dishes packed with vegetables and loaded with delicious spices and eaten on a bun. Sign me up. Our thanks to Sheil Shukla of Plant Based Artist for this incredibly inventive and tasty dish and for making it available via One Green Planet. One Green Planet is an amazing resource for all things vegan and Plant Based Artist is now another new favourite of ours – I was blown away by the great recipes, smart layout and beautiful images. Check out both sites for yourself – you won’t be disappointed in either.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oilvegan vegetable samosa burger
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1–1 1/2 cups mixed diced bell pepper, peas, corn, carrots, and finely chopped cauliflower
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder (or cayenne, to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon aamchur (dry mango powder) or lemon juice, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar (optional)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Approximately 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cooked and peeled russet potato
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (may not be necessary)
  • Cooking oil, for the patties
  • Desired burger toppings

Preparation

  1. Heat cooking oil at medium heat and add cumin, coriander, and fennel seeds. Heat until the spices begin to brown, then add the ginger and mixed vegetables.
  2. Cook until the vegetables start to brown.
  3. Add garam masala, turmeric, red chili powder, aamchur, sugar, and salt and mix to combine.
  4. Add water as necessary and cook until the vegetables are fully tender.
  5. Allow the vegetable mixture to cool slightly then add in the cooked potato. Mash in the potato until a dough-like consistency is formed.
  6. If necessary, add breadcrumbs and mix until you are able to form patties.
  7. Cook the patties at medium heat on both sides, until brown. Use enough cooking oil as necessary to prevent them from sticking to the pan.
  8. Serve the patties with your favorite chutney and toppings.
