Best Ever Veggie Burgers

Rebecca Winbauer

"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."

  1. Process pinto beans, onion, brown rice, almonds, cashews, mushrooms, black olives, and garlic in batches in a food processor until completely chopped; transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Mix Parmesan cheese, egg, flaxseed, vegetable bouillon, and Worcestershire sauce into the bean mixture. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Form bean mixture into 12 patties and arrange onto a non-stick baking sheet.
  5. Bake burgers in preheated oven for 10 minutes, turn, and continue baking until cooked through, about 10 minutes more.
  6. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Cook burgers in hot skillet until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

These were great! If I hadn't made them myself, I would think they were made of beef. In my oven, I had to cook them for a total of 24 minutes.

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 f...

This was the best veggie burger I've had! I didn't have olives, so just used a couple of tablespoons of olive tapenade. I also forgot to add the onions, so added them before cooking them (let ...

I made this vegan friendly by using chia seeds and water instead of egg, omitting the Worcestershire, and replaced the parm with grated vegan cheddar. They were delish, definitely my favorite ve...

This was excellent. Okay, I added a little garlic salt and didn't have olives. I believe if I had the olives, I would not have added the garlic salt. I didn't have a food processor so I fough...

After trying all the store-bought veggie burgers, I knew that I had to find a homemade version to eliminate the soy and other unwanted ingredients. These are the BEST! My husband loved all the f...
