Raw Cincinnati Chili
I have been asked by so many people how to make a burger out of leftovers, so I figured I would do a little tutorial. I used 1 cup of the leftover curried split pea/veggie stew. It is fairly thick as you can see:
1 cup of the soup, a very liberal half cup of rolled oats and 1 T golden flax meal. That's it.
Mix and place in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
Shape into patties.. then dredge in cornmeal, breadcrumbs or flour if desired. Make sure to season all of the above! You don't have to do this, but it makes for a crispy outer layer. Most of the time I skip this because it makes the burgers healthier. (dredging them will help if they are not sticking together)
Heat your cast iron or non stick skillet to a little less than medium and spray with cooking spray. Cook for 5 minutes or so on each side.
Burgers! See how simple it is? I got 4 burgers out of the mixture, but I make them small.
