Healthy Veggie Burger

Ingredients:

1. 1 can of garbanzo bean drained and mashed nicely

2. 1 cup cooked brown rice

3. 1/4 cup of oat bran

4. 1/4 quick cooking oats

5. Package of tofu

6. Fresh Basil

7. Salt, black pepper, and Garlic powder

8. Vegetable oil

Method:

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the mashed garbanzo beans and basil. Mix in the oat bran, quick oats, and rice; the mixture should seem a little dry.(You can mix it in a blender)
  2. In a separate bowl, mash the tofu with your hands, trying to squeeze out as much of the water as possible. Drain the water, and repeat the process until there is hardly any water worth pouring off. It is not necessary to remove all of the water.
  3. Stir the tofu into the garbanzo beans and oats. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and sage; mix until well blended.
  4. Drizzle little bit of oil on the griddle over medium-high heat. Form patties out of the bean mixture(put it in the fridge for about 15 minutes so they get a little firm), and heat them in hot oil for about 5 minutes per side. Serve as you would with any burgers

P.S you can add any veggies you want but just make sure it's sliced very thinly because you want it to cook properly and and not bulge out of the burger. Make sure the tofu is firm otherwise the burgers will fall apart. I suggest adding pancko or bread crumbs to help them stick together.

You can put shredded carrots,diced mushrooms, bell pepper and corn. Very delicious with those ingredients.

Add italian seasoning for extra flavor.

If your adding additional veggies saute them a little bit first(like mushrooms and bell peppers).

You can leave out of the tofu if you don't like it.

Enjoy!

7. 2 cups of Heavy cream or half and half

9. 2 cups of water(vegetable stock)

Method.

2. Add minced garlic, cook a little bit. Take it out in a plate. Add little bit more butter and

3. Add flour and cook a little bit(till light brown make sure it doesn't burn)

4. Add 4 cups of vegetable stock or water and add the 1/2 cup of half and half and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.

5. Add the onion, broccoli, and carrots, and add salt and pepper and let it simmer for another 15 minutes.

P.S You can make the soup without the cheese to be on the healthy side. But a little bit of cheese doesn't hurt.

Add carrots in it also towards the end if you like it tastes really good.

You can avoid the heavy cream but all it does is thickens the soup.

^how much flour do you add? I hope this tastes like the kind you get at Panera; I love their soup but it's ridiculously expensive

DaljitKaur, do you realise that fruits have got plentiful amounts of sugar and that adding processed white sugar- like you suggest is not advisable if you want to make a ''healthy'' recipe. Sugar makes the body weaker, sugar should never be purchased in its processed form.

DaljitKaur, do you realise that fruits have got plentiful amounts of sugar and that adding processed white sugar- like you suggest is not advisable if you want to make a ''healthy'' recipe. Sugar makes the body weaker, sugar should never be purchased in its processed form.

First of all I do suggest on the bottom that if you want it to be healthy then leave out the sugar cheese etc. I personally don't put sugar into the smoothies because like you mentioned they have plenty of sugar already in them but those who are not used to eating or drinking stuff without sugar can add little bit at first and they will realize it's too sweet and therefore will slowly start avoiding it. I consider myself healthy but I don't completely avoid those "non healthy" foods. It's hard for me just like for anyone else. But the trick is to use in moderation. I personally use truvia which is much better than regular sugar because it's a natural sweetner.

Thanks for pointing it out. But I do mention it that avoid those to make it healthy but I want to post the recipe as a whole therefore readers can better judge what they should or shouldn't take out of the recipe.

Sun Chips used to be my favorites until one day I came to know that it has meat product in it, so does all Doritos. Roughly 90% of chips we see in market has some sort of meat product (beef, chicken). Frito lays classic and few others are safe for vegetarians.

The stealth trolling of crisps with meat products is a dodgy practice. I don't see the need for it although I guess there must be if they do it so much.

    • https://www.tribuneindia.com/news/diaspora/inspiring-73-year-old-grandfather-known-as-skipping-sikh-wins-uk-award-104893   Tribune Web Desk Chandigarh, June 26     Rajinder Singh popularly known as ‘Skipping Sikh’. A 73-year-old Sikh grandfather, popularly known as ‘Skipping Sikh’, who shot to limelight for his exercise videos during the lockdown that attract thousands of viewers and helped raise funds for the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK, was on Friday awarded the ‘Point of Light’ award Rajinder Singh, aged 73, from Harlington, films exercise videos in his allotment, bringing together over 250,000 viewers on YouTube, helping the Sikh community remain active and fundraising over £12,000 for NHS charities, the UK’s Points of Light website wrote. With the UK in lockdown, this was his way of encouraging people to squeeze in some physical activity in their daily lives. Missing his daily exercise, food and prayer with others from the Sikh community during lockdown, Rajinder decided to share videos online of his skipping fitness routines and inspire others to keep active with him, particularly those isolating at home. His tutorials have since become a worldwide phenomenon, and he is encouraging people across the globe to join in his lockdown skip challenge and donate to NHS charities. In a personal letter to Rajinder, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:“I wanted to write personally to thank you for all that you are doing to support our extraordinary NHS, and encouraging the nation to pick up their skipping ropes and keep their spirits high by taking on your lockdown skip challengeour ‘Skipping Sikh’ fitness videos have given a lift to the thousands of people worldwide who have watched online and taken part with you in your daily exercise, and provided an ingenious way of bringing together and energising the Sikh community at a time when temples have been closed. “So allow me to join in sharing your message that health is wealth, and congratulate you on becoming the UK’s 1410th Point of Light!” Rajinder said: “Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh. I am truly humbled for being awarded the Points of Light award. I love to serve others – it’s part of who I am as a Sikh and I love to do sewa (give back). I never thought something like skipping would inspire the world and spread smiles. I’m really grateful for the support and being given this recognition. Thank you to our PM Boris Johnson, God bless you and everyone, I thank everyone for the support and love, and I encourage all to join in the skipping challenge and tag me in @SikhSkipping. “Health is wealth so to everyone my message is stay active and stay happy.”

(ANI / Twitter)       Twenty people, mostly Sikh pilgrims, are feared dead in an accident between a bus and a train near Sheikhupura on Friday afternoon. The bus carrying the pilgrims was hit at an unmanned railway crossing by the Karachi bound Shah Hussain Express. The pilgrims were travelling from Peshawar. Police have said there were 25-27 persons in the van at the time of the accident. Pakistan railways official said railway and district rescue teams arrived at the spot to rescue the victims. The injured were rushed to Sheikhupura Hospital and some are reported to be in critical condition. The crossing gate where the accident took place was closed but the coach driver may have tried to take a shortcut instead of waiting at the crossing, which resulted in the crash, a local police official said. According to the secretary-general of Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee Sardar Amir Singh, the deceased belong to three or four families. The pilgrims were on their way back to Peshawar after a visit to Nankana Sahib — where they had gone to visit relatives. The convoy of pilgrims comprised two more coaches but both took another route and have been reported to be safe. Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan said that the sikh pilgrim were returning from Nankana Sahib. He also said that the injured will be provided with proper medical care. “Deeply saddened at the accident this afternoon at a railway crossing near Sheikhupura which resulted in the death of atleast 20 people, mainly Sikh pilgrims returning from Nankana Sahib. Have directed that proper medical care be provided to the injured,” Khan tweeted. Officials said the Sikh pilgrims were from the northwestern city of Peshawar, reported news agency Associated Press.
    • The other big problem is this western mentality that our people (and especially our girls) have adopted which is they don't want a big family. They don't want to handle that responsibility etc. Because they want more time to "go on holiday" or other stuff. They (at most) want 1 or 2 children.  Now don't get me wrong, if you can't afford to take care if more than 2 children due to time, money, health etc. then that's 💯 fine. But if you can, you should be aiming to, as a couple, have at least 3 children.  Usually at this point I would say something like "...and if we don't, then our future generations will curse us...", but at this rate, in time, we won't have any future generations left...
    • I think we Sikhs should aim for 3 kids for each family.  It is above replacement number which is 2.1. 3 is an achievable, realistic and sustainable number. If the family is well off, they could go for 4.  
    • Thats the sole reason we should have 3 kids. Look at the muslims, they have fertility rate over 2. In places like afghanistan it bumped up to 4! I think our fertility rate dropped during kharku period. Our kids were killed, the youth were killed, hence making the leftover people to bump up the fertility rate, which they couldnt.
