Total Time: 25 minutes

Want to make the best vegan burger? Try some hand-selected recipes from our article or freestyle with the following formula using what you already have on hand —  we help you make the best plant-based patties you can enjoy with your whole family.

Ingredients

Vegan patties

  • 1.5 cups legumes (chickpeas, black beans, white beans, etc.)
  • 1 cup grains (oats, cooked rice, cooked quinoa, etc.)
  • 1.5 cups chopped veggies (beets, carrots, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, etc.)
  • ½ cup add-ins & flavorings (nuts, onion, garlic, fresh herbs, etc.)

For the Burgers

Instructions

  1. Sauté onion, garlic and vegetables for around 5-8 minutes or until soft in a skillet using soy sauce, vegetable broth or oil.
  2. Add your cooked & drained legumes, grains and sautéd vegetables into a food processor jar.
  3. Pulse a few times to combine, add all herbs and spices, then pulse again without overdoing it.
  4. Adjust everything to your taste preference, then press the mixture between your fingers to ensure it has the right texture.
  5. If it’s too crumbly, add some water. If it’s too wet, add more of the dry ingredients you used.
  6. Form plant-based patties with your hands and place them next to each other on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake in the oven at 350 °F (180 °C) for 15 minutes, flip over and bake for another 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can fry the patties in oil using a skillet — this will only take 3-5 minutes for each side.
  8. Serve warm on your favorite bun alongside your favorite vegan burger fixings!

Notes

  • Be sure to use lots of spices like smoked paprika or tamari to make your vegan burgers really savory and bring out those umami flavors.
  • You can make Indian or Thai-flavored patties, add some pesto or crushed chips for added texture — the sky’s truly the limit here!
  • Vegan burger patties can also be frozen uncooked or once they are cooled after cooking in a freezer bag. Reheat in the oven.
