This is my favorite veggie burger. It comes from one of my favorite veggie/vegan blogs: Oh She Glows

Check out her site..she has wonderful recipes, even if you aren't a vegetarian or vegan, it's a way eat healthier.

Our Perfect Veggie Burger

1/2 cup onion, diced
1 large garlic clove, minced
Flax eggs: 2.5 tbsp. ground flax + 1/2 cup warm water, mixed in bowl
1 cup oats, processed into flour* (other flours might work)
1.5 cups bread crumbs
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and roughly pureed or mashed


Heaping 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley (or fresh herb of choice)
1/3 cup almonds, chopped (toasted if preferred)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, (toasted if preferred)
1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1.5 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp. kosher salt)

In a large skillet, sauté onions and garlic in 1/2 tbsp. oil. Mix your flax egg and all the seasonings together in a small bowl and set aside for at least 10 mins while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Place all ingredients (except spices and salt) into a large mixing bowl and stir very well. Add the flax egg/seasonings and mix well.
With slightly wet hands, shape dough into patties. Pack dough tightly as this will help it stick together. I made 8 medium patties.

Cooking methods: Our preferred method of cooking was frying in the skillet!!


My notes:

I use chopped toasted walnuts and almonds instead of sunflower seeds. I also add a couple of good squirts of BBQ sauce into the mix. It gives great flavor.

I also mix ALL the seasonings in with the flax egg. That way the seasonings are evenly distributed. I don't always follow the recipe exactly, I add various other things to it based on what I have in my fridge at the time. But roughly chopped toasted walnuts are awesome in this! They give great crunch.

I have found that using the food processor works great. The beans get all smooth and much easier to handle. Just smashing with the potato masher didn't work well for me at all! You may have to add more breadcrumbs if it's too wet. Panko works great too.

I have a burger press that I use so that the burgers are all the same size and they fit the bun.

When frying, be sure to cook them long enough to get a nice brown crust on the outside. They don't fall apart so easily, plus they look like "real" hamburgers!


Experiment with your burgers...I never make them the same way twice!

I left these plain but feel free to add whatever spice or herb you like. I like mine topped it with DIY organic sprouts & condiments. They are chock full of vitamins too.

Estimated Cost per burger: $0.75

Easy Sweet Potato and Quinoa Burgers

1/4 cup quinoa (cooked = 1/2 cup)
1 small sweet potato (diced small cubes) about 1 1/2 cups
1/4 cup diced onion
1 tsp Sriracha sauce (optional)
Salt & Pepper to taste

In a small frying pan, heat a little olive oil and fry onion until browned. Set aside. Cook quinoa as per directions on package. Boil sweet potato for about 10 minutes.


In a medium bowl, add onion, quinoa, sweet potato and other ingredients and mash well. Place in fridge for about 30 minutes or until mixture is cooled.

Shape two burgers and dust with flour. Cook on each side for a few minutes until browned and heated. Serve on bun with condiments if desired. Feel free to play around with this recipe by adding garlic or other spices!

These burgers are rich in Vitamin A, Iron, Fiber & Protein! Each burger has about 180 calories and about 1.5gr of fat (excluding oil that might be used for frying onion or burger).

Good luck!
