veggie burger recipe

I am looking for a veggie burger recipe that doesn't have beans or nuts in it. Does anyone have one?

I found this recipe. It looks good!

Recipe: Original Gardenburger®
Have you ever eaten a Gardenburger®, the very first veggie burger? Now you can make it yourself.
Yield6 burgersTime1½ hoursTools
  • several small bowls
  • steamer OR saucepan + wire basket/colander
  • large bowl
  • food processor
  • wooden spoon
  • large frying pan
  • spatula
  • baking sheet
  • ¼ c boiling water
  • 2 T bulgur wheat
  • 4 c mushrooms, cleaned, de-stemmed, and sliced
  • ½ c onion, diced
  • ½ c lukewarm water
  • ½ c rolled oats
  • 2/3 c brown rice, cooked
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 T cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 T cottage cheese
  • ½ t salt
  • ½ t garlic powder
  • black pepper
  • 2 T cornstarch
  • 1½ T olive oil
DirectionsPlace bulgar wheat in small bowl, cover with boiling water, and let sit for 1 hour (it will swell). Steam the mushrooms 10 minutes or until tender. Set the mushrooms aside in a small bowl, then steam onion 10 minutes, until translucent. Transfer to a large bowl. Place oats in a third small bowl, cover with lukewarm water, and let soak about 10 minutes, until soft.
Drain bulgur wheat and oats, then place in food processor along with mushrooms, rice, cheeses, and spices. Pulse 4 or 5 times until ingredients are chopped but not puréed.
Pour the mixture into the onion bowl, add cornstarch, and mix well. Shape mixture into six patties.
Preheat oven to 300.
Over medium-low heat, warm 1 T olive oil. Cook the burgers for 2-4 minutes, until lightly browned, turn, and repeat.
Oil the baking sheet, place the fried burgers on it, and bake 10 for minutes. Turn them over and bake another 10-15 minutes. Serve immediately or let cool and then freeze, tightly wrapped.
NotesAdapted from Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Recipes Lite! (his recipe calls for low-fat cheeses).

Good evening all!!

I make a great veggie patti:

1 cup shredded zucchini
1 cup finely chopped mushrooms (not in a paste though a little coarser)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Combine all ingredients. Make into 5 patties (1/2 cup each). Pan fry on medium until done all the way through 5-7 minutes each side.

Add-ins include: (2 tbsp) bell pepper finely chopped, shredded carrots, shredded uncooked beets, green onions, parsley, finely chopped or shredded parsnips.

Sometimes in place of the garlic powder, I will use old bay seasoning, and the product you get ends up tasting like crab cakes.

Anyway, take care all!! Norma

We do a very easy Vege Burger (Pattie) recipe.

Grate: carrot, pumpkin, zucchini, onion, potato, sweet potato,
finely chop: bit of capsicum (bell pepper)

Mix together in bowl, add 2 eggs and about 1/3 cup flour, salt and pepper to taste.

Add:Chilli sauce, garlic, worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce (ketchup) can all be added as you wish.

Drop tablespoonsful into a hot frying pan or griddle, cook over low heat for about 5 mins, turn cook further 5 mins. Can also be baked in oiven 375F for about 1/2 hour. Also, can drop into egg-rings in the pan if you want even sizes.

As you can see, these are very easy and the recipe can be adapted to sut the number of people., hence no quantites given. For the two of us we would use 1 good size potato, 2 carrots, pumpkin and sweet potato about the same size as the potato.

God bless,

We buy Dr. Pranger's Veggie Burgers at COSTCO. They are out of this world. I may be hard to believe, but they taste a little bit like White Castle hambugers! I think it must be the onion. They are so good, it's not worth my time to make veggie burgers anymore.

Once cooked, these tasty burgers freeze well.

1 block (10 1/2 oz.) firm tofu
2 oz. bulgur or 4 oz. cooked millet or rice
2 fl. oz. hot water
1 sm. onion, very finely chopped
2 oz. mushrooms, very finely chopped
2 oz. carrot, grated
1 vegetable stock cube, crumbled
2 tbsp. soya sauce
1 tsp. dried mixed herbs or 2 tsp. any fresh herb, coriander, dill, etc.
2 tbsp. whole wheat flour plus a little extra for coating.

1. Break up the tofu with your fingers into very small pieces.
2. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and squeeze well to shape into burgers. (As the mixture is very sticky it will help if you dip your hands and utensils in cold water).
3. Refrigerate for an hour or two.
4. For a crisp coating, toss the burgers in a little whole wheat flour before frying.
5. Deep fry the burgers in oil, a few at a time. Drain well and serve hot or cold. Makes 8 burgers. NOTE: It is most important to fry the burgers in very hot oil to avoid disintegration.



2 cup cooked lentils
1 cup cooked and minced button [COLOR=#3d3d3d! important][COLOR=#3d3d3d! important]mushrooms[/COLOR][/COLOR] or portabello mushrooms
1 cup bulghur wheat, cooked
2 cloves roasted garlic, pureed
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1 Tbs. Worcestershire
1/4 Tsp. tarragon, minced
[COLOR=#3d3d3d! important][COLOR=#3d3d3d! important]salt [COLOR=#3d3d3d! important]and [/COLOR][COLOR=#3d3d3d! important]pepper[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]


1. Cook 1 cup dry lentils in medium sized pot, with 2 cups of liquid (vegatable [COLOR=#3d3d3d! important][COLOR=#3d3d3d! important]stock[/COLOR][/COLOR] or water) simmer about 25 minutes (the one dry cup - turns into two) Mash half of the lentils, keeping the other half of the lentils whole.

2. Brush mushrooms with oil, season with salt and pepper, and broil or cook in [COLOR=#3d3d3d! important][COLOR=#3d3d3d! important]oven[/COLOR][/COLOR] at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes or until golden. Then mince.

3. Cook half cup of bulghur wheat with one cup of stock. Simmer for 25 minutes.

4. Take one head of garlic, wrap in foil. Cook in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

5. Mix remaining ingredients together, thoroughly, for two minutes.

6. Form into four 6-ounce burgers and refrigerate for two hours.

7. Oil patties and grill for 6 to 7 minutes on each side until golden (you may sauté or bake if you prefer).

I made some all most veggie burgers yesterday. I used one pound of hamburger, cooked oatmeal, bread crumbs, eggs, garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper. They taste good but are a little mushy in the center. I think grated carrots would take care of that problem.
