Renkon-burgers, anti fast-food.

Healthy vegan burger that taste hundred times better than the standard take-out.

It’s common in Japanese cuisine to make savory bits by sticking 2 slices of renkon (lotus root) around a small patty. This time, I made my “meat” with boiled azuki beans.

I roughly mashed them with a fork. Added some Thai red curry paste, ground sesame and a little potato starch for the binding. 2 minutes in the micro-wave. I formed the buns with slices of boiled lotus root. They can be stocked a few days in the fridge.

I ate a few like that :

I’ve reheated a few in a frying pan with other items. And these on the photo have been reheated 4 minutes in the oven-toaster :

Served with shiso leaves and a sliced tomato.

That’s really the best. After one day in the fridge, the flavors were better combined. The contrast of the hot patties and the raw veggies is very pleasant. Dietetic bonus : the C-vitamin of the plants makes the iron from the beans more efficient in your body. Well it’s addictive, I made a ton and they are all gone…
