Best Ever Veggie Burgers

Recipe by  

"After trying many different recipes for a healthier, non-soy veggie burger, I came up with this. It's really versatile and you can use any combination of nuts and beans. After the baking step, you can brown in a frying pan, throw on the grill to brown, or freeze to use later."

After trying several veggie burger recipes, I found this one to be my favorite. I used pecans and walnuts, melted cheese on a couple and skipped the pan frying at the end. The whole family loved these burgers.

My family of meat eating boys loved these burgers. I pureed the ingredients in the food processor, but next time I think I'll do it in batches...puree the beans but leave some of the rice and onions nuts whole to give it texture. But even with my mistake, we ate them all. awesome!

My husband is a vegetarian, and we have been looking for the best veggie burger recipe around--this is hands down the best one we have tried so far. We make a triple batch, and store it in our freezer--easy grab and go when we head to BBQ's during the summer. And so versatile by adding/exchanging other ingredients. Meat eaters like this recipe as well.

Best veggie burger I've ever had!

I have to say these burgers were very good. I halved the recipe, used quinoa instead of rice and probably ended up quadrupling the mushrooms (by mistake) so that's probably why they fell apart, but they were delicious nonetheless.
