Homemade Vegan Burger Patties

Howdy Everyone!

How are you?  Are you enjoying your Thursday?  Wow, one more day until the glorious weekend!  I am super excited for the weekend because we are going to head downtown and enjoy all of the Olympic festivities going on!

I did hear we might not be able to bring your own food into some of the events or houses down there, so I better think of some good hiding places for some bars and smoothies ;)

Who loves veggie burgers?  I do!!! However, I have been unable to eat them because most of them have soy (Booooo) in them and it doesn’t make me feel good.  I get asked this question a lot “what veggies burgers do you eat?” and I ask a lot of my Blog friends “what veggie burgers do you eat?”  LOL, so finally I decided to make my own….sans soy!

I have tested these gems for two nights in a row.  The first night with Black beans and the second night with chickpeas. They were both fab, but we preferred the chickpeas.  I also found the chickpea burgers held together a bit better.

Vegan Veggie Burgers - Gluten Free!

(tweaked from the recipe found on Ohsheglows.com )

1 can chickpeas (or 1 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas 0r any bean you would like)
1 cup oats
1 zucchini
2 small peppers (I used 3 small sweet peppers)
1 cup spinach
1 carrot
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (0ptional – you could use flax seeds too!)
spices – I used a dash of sea salt, sprinkle of cayenne, and dill)

Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix into a thick mess ;)  Shape into burger patties and bake at 375 for 15 – 20 minutes per side.

These suckers were wonderful, filling and enjoyable!

I used Chard as the greens for my salad last night - wow, who knew raw chard was as yummy as it is.  It is really mild tasting, isn’t it?  I see many of you ladies out there using this as your salad green and took a hint to try it out!  Fabulous!!!

My salad dressing has been the same as shown here.  Super easy and extremely tasty ;)

Off to let the dog run around the park with his “orange friend”.

Have a great night!

You must check out the Give Away on Lauren’s site – Gingeristhenewpink!  She is giving away a Raw Cleanse from Garden of Life!  This is GREAT!!!!

What is your favourite store bought veggie burger?  Do you make your own?

    I love, love LOVE TJ’s Masala burgers. And I think a lot of it is that their taste isn’t like any other veggie burger I have had or have been able to recreate :) They aren’t very high in protein or fiber though so when I buy them it is 100% for the taste.

    Too funny – the veggie burgers I had last night, I got the recipe from Ohsheglows too. I love the idea of adding spinach. Gonna have to try that next time.

    Hi Kris…I too have been in search of a veggie burger with no gluten or soy! Thank YOU for posting this recipe. For once I have all the ingredients (black beans not garbanzo though) so I am going to make these. I will let you know how it goes!

    Just to confirm you used fresh spinach and not frozen, right?

    I love that you make your own veggie burgers! I always feel like I have an abundance of soy in my diet so I’m trying to switch it up. My favorite store-bought (soy free) burger are Amy’s California/Bistro burgers

    I am so happy you posted this. My husband and I are planning out a no-processed foods diet and our fave burgers (Boca Chik’n and original vegan) are obviously processed. I would love to make this recipe. I wonder if we can do it without a food processor.

    Your homemade veggie burgers look delicious! I have only tried making veggie “burgers” once with black beans and sweet potatoes. They were great flavor-wise but I couldn’t get them to stick! I’m going to try your recipe next time :)

    I never ever would have thought to make chickpea burgers. Im actually really surprised at how much I LIKE chickpeas. Who knew?

    Im going downtown this weekend for the Olympic stuff too! I really just want to see the torch. My boyfriend already got to, and let me tell you I was NOT happy about it! He was supposed to wait for me!

    Kris these look awesome and i love that there’s not a pound of raw almonds or cashews in them. LOVELY b/c too many nuts in burgers just makes them taste like a granola bar, not a burger to me LOL :)

    I can’t believe I haven’t been to your site in so long. I’ve missed ya. I’ve just a bit busy with the baby lately. Luckily I’ve had a chance to play some catch up today.

    As for the veggie burgers, I prefer to make my own, too. Brendan Brazier’s are my favorite, with a few tweaks of my own.
