Veggie Burgers

Veggie burger... made of vegetables

Ever wonder why when you buy a “veggie” burger in the frozen food section, the ingredient list is often severely lacking in vegetables? Dr. Praeger burgers excluded, a lot of veggie burgers are full of anything but vegetables. That’s why it’s fun to make them at home. Here’s a quick and (very) easy recipe from Diet, Dessert and Dogs that I saw adapted on Oh She Glows.

Ricki used garbanzo flour and Angela used spelt. I went with oat flour and it worked very nicely. To make oat flour, just put whole oats in a coffee grinder and go to town.

These burgers are really great and are filled with red pepper, chickpeas, spinach, carrot, sunflower seeds, onion, dill, basil and all kinds of awesome. Definitely the best burgers I’ve made at home.

  1. These sound great! I always want my veggie burger to actually be made of – and taste like! – veggies! I have never understood people who think a veggie burger should look and taste exactly like a meat burger…that just doesn’t make sense to me!

  2. Mmmm I need to make thses ASAP! I’m always looking for new veggie burger recipes. Everything you make always looks good, if you posted a picture of dirt on a plate I’d probably try replicate it haha

  4. I’m so glad you enjoyed these! They are one of my all-time favorite burgers. And I agree–why would anyone want a veggie burger that tasted like meat?
