This is the story of how the world’s best veggie burger recipe came about.
Okay, I may be bias, but hear me out.
Recently, I’ve had this little voice stuck in my head. It says, “things to remember.” And the voice is from audiobook! It’s a calming, yet articulate voice saying these little words over and over in my head. You see, I’m listening to an audiobook by Joyce Meyer called OVERLOAD. At the end of each chapter she goes over “things to remember.” What does this have to do with a vegan veggie burger recipe? A lot, actually!
You see, it turns out, this voice is a friendly reminder to not feel OVERLOADED. How does one do that? It might be as simple as planning ahead.
Here’s what goes on in my mind: “I need to start meal prepping more! I need to make more freezer friendly meals for meal prep. Oh, and I while I am it, let’s crank up the veggie intake. I need it! Still trying to get over this dang cold! How can I accomplish all these “needs” so that I don’t feel overwhelmed?”
And you know what? I learned that when you ask yourself these questions your brain automatically looks for answers. Which is how these vegan veggie burgers (that are freezer friendly) came about. Phew, sorry that took some explanation, but I’m sure you can relate. Right?
So here I am today, sharing an updated vegan veggie burger recipe all because of meal prep and spring cleaning my brain. Feels good! Now, let’s chat a little about these burgers, mmm k?
What’s in a veggie burger? Is it Vegan?
This vegan veggie burger recipe seriously is the best because it’s vegan without effort. And the flavor profile is unreal! Did I mention it’s also nutrient dense and loaded with plant-based protein and iron? ? Um, yup. Score!
- Raw vegetables – cauliflower, broccoli, onion, carrot or zucchini!
- Herbs of choice – basil is my choice. 😉
- Flaxseed or Chia seed (grounded)
- Sunflower seeds and pine nuts
- Garlic cloves
- grain free flour (cassava, arrowroot, or coconut flour all work)
Perfect for your Memorial Day BBQ. Shhhh, just don’t tell anyone these burgers are actually healthy.
How do you make veggie burgers that don’t fall apart?
I know what you’re thinking. Okay, vegan means no egg right? Then how do vegan burgers bind?
Ahh, the power of ground flax! Besides using these seeds as an “egg” binder, other sticky ingredients can help hold the burger together. Ingredients like chickpea and sunflower seeds grinded with the starch (flour).
Here’s one other little trick! Once you blend your batter together, place it in a large bowl, then roll it into a ball and let it chill for 20 minutes. Then make the patties by hand. Easy!
How do you freeze veggie burgers?
I seriously am in love with this homemade veggies burger recipe because for one they freeze so well for meal prep. I know, here I am again talking about make ahead meals and meal prepping, but for me it’s just a reminder to keep doing it!! The planning will get easier and pretty soon batch cooking will be a breeze! Right? It just makes more sense.
To meal prep/freeze these veggies burgers: simply grind the ingredients, form into a patty, bake, wrap in foil or separate each patty with wax or parchment paper, and store in freezer. You can freeze these veggie burgers precooked or raw, either works! I was actually quite impressed at how well these vegan burgers reheated after being frozen.
