All-Time Favorite Veggie Burgers
Satisfy your appetite for a great-tasting veggie burger that's easy to make and more healthfully prepared when you use your own wholesome ingredients. Find our favorite recipes here.
Veggie burgers can be made with chickpeas, black beans, white beans, potatoes, lentils, and pretty much any other vegetable that can be mashed and formed into a patty. And made right, they're delicious—but fragile. Even with binders like breadcrumbs, oats, egg whites, or farina, veggie burger patties tend to be delicate things that don't fare well on the grill. Unless you're using whole portobello mushrooms as the "patties," you're likely to have more success cooking your veggie burgers on the stovetop or under the broiler, then flipping them very carefully when the time comes. Commercial patties tend to be more robust, of course, but we're talking about homemade versions here. Click through the slides to find recipes for our all-time favorite veggie burgers.
These satisfying patties are made with a mixture of red lentils, mushrooms, carrots, and onions. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings and a dollop of aioli.
Make homemade veggie burgers in a snap with precooked lentils. We like the black beluga variety from Archer Farms, with no added salt. Brown lentils can be substituted but tend to be more moisture-dense and may require additional breadcrumbs to help bind the burgers.
