Makes a delicious dinner burger and a great way to use leftover grits! Kick up the veggie burger a notch by adding leafy lettuce, a big slice of tomato and a toasted bun. Yum!


* To make 1/4 cup cooked grits:

  • In a small saucepan bring 1/8 cup grits, 1/2 cup water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 10-12 minutes, stirring often, until tender.
  • Microwave method: In microwave bowl, stir 1/8 cup grits, pinch of salt and 3/4 cup water together. Heat on high for 3 minutes. Stop, stir and heat in 2 minute increments, stirring after each, until tender.


Mash black beans and mince onion.
In medium size bowl, combine all ingredients.
Coat a griddle or large skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium.
Drop batter by spoonfuls onto griddle.
Cook until browned and then flip to cook second side.
Serve hot.

    We visited your wonderful restuarant yesterday. My sister, visiting from Michigan, absolutely loved the veggie burger made with nuts, seeds, etc.

    Do you have a recipe I can share with her?

    Thank you!
