Really, there's an infinite number of degrees. My wife was a vegetarian for years. though she'd eat fish. She was technically an Ovo-Lacto-Pescatarian. But Vegetarian is easier to say.

Thankfully, she started eating meat when she was pregnant with our boy. Her first official craving was a corned beef sammich.

Regardless of what you want to call these, the recipe looks fabulous and I'll be saving up some grain from my brew this weekend!

This recipe sounds great -- thanks for sharing. Between dog biscuits, bread, veggie burgers and the fact that I just planted my garden I don't think I'll have much to worry about getting rid of on my next brew day!

Always one of my favorite arguments with the MANY Bay Area vegetarians I encounter! This recipe sounds good! I've enjoyed many fine vegetarian dishes over the years. Many of them are quite good. Unfortunately, my wife decided to go full blow vegan for a few months when we're still just dating. It was NOT a happy two months for me, but, luckily, she saw the light!

Tried the pure vegan for 16 months, just about died from iron deficiency. I have trouble keeping my levels up taking supplements and eating meat.

Anyway someone asked about the nutritional valve. Very high in protein, as brewing doesn't remove much, excellent cattle feed. AKA one-step-off vegan.

There's a brewery in Columbia, MO (Flat Branch) that makes veggie burgers out of their spent grains. They are phenomenal and, in my opinion at least, better than standard hamburgers (though not better than Booches burgers [but that's a higher class of burger]). I'll have to make this recipe and see if it compares. If this pans out I'm going to earn some major points with my vegetarian fiance.

I made a very similar recipe to Phatuna's last night and they turned out really tasty. The flavor is much better than any frozen veggie patties. I used two day old spent grains that I reserved, still moist, covered in the fridge.

2Tbs Olive oil
1tsp chili powder
1/2tsp cumin
1tsp vegan worcestershire
1tsp salt
1/2tsp black pepper

mix all the above ingredients together in a large bowl and set aside

in a separate mixing bowl combine the below ingredients.

2.5 cups spent grain.
1 15oz can mashed black beans
1Tbs peanut butter
2 diced and steamed carrots
1 stalk diced and steamed celery
1/4 cup diced red onion
1-3 Tbs of chickpea flour (to bind)

mix the grain mixture with the olive oil mixture.

create into patties and fry in 1 Tbs canola oil, over medium high heat, for 4 minutes on each side.

That's a really cool idea. I'll have to try it. Do you make and freeze the burgers right after you're done brewing, or do you freeze the spent grain until you're ready to use it?

The person who brought this to my attention said that they guy that makes these, typically makes a lot of burger patty's (uncooked I assume), then vacuum seals them. you might need some wax paper if you want to do this correctly.
