  • 1 small onion, diced
  • Ginger(2 in. piece diced)
  • 1 garlic clover, minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seed
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • coconut oil for brushing

**I’ll be honest I didn’t measure any of these spices and I eliminated ones I didn’t have.  I just did a sprinkle here and a sprinkle there type thing:)

  • Place patties on a baking sheet with parchment paper


  • Brush tops of burgers with small amount of coconut oil
