Veggie Burgers

Homemade veggie burgers are a great source of protein for vegans and vegetarians. However, if you have struggled with having a veggie burger fall apart or being very dry or crumbly, you have come to the right place.

Most veggie burger recipes need gluten, eggs, prodigious quantities of starches, and freezing or chilling before they’ve a chance of holding well together.

The recipes for making veggie burgers that we will share will make preparing veggie burgers simple, fun and exciting. You will be able to make veggie burgers for your vegan friends or family members in a short period of time.

Tofu Veggie Burger

This simple recipe for tasty tofu veggie burger is very easy to make and is perfect for a daily vegetarian as well as vegan dinner, lunch, or picnic. If you need it to be gluten-free, you can swap out the standard flour for any type of gluten-free flour.

This easy to make and healthy tofu veggie burger receives an extra nutritional boost due to wheat germ, and lots of flavor from garlic powder, green onion, and soy sauce. However, if wheat germ is not your thing, you can try any other filler, like almond meal, or simply add more flour.

Tofu Veggie Burger - Dandy Kat

The tofu burger is quick and simple to make. All that you need to do is thoroughly mash your tofu together with some simple ingredients. Then form it into small patties and pan-fry for a couple of minutes and you are done.

This brilliant recipe is both vegan and vegetarian. We will recommend that you use chickpea flour (also known as "besan"). You can find it in almost any good Indian grocery store. You can also find it in the ethnic foods section of a large and well-stocked grocer as well. It is because it is usually "stickier", at least in our experience, compared to other gluten-free flours.

Ingredients

  • Half container extra firm or firm tofu (it should be well-drained)
  • Three green onions (diced)
  • One onion (diced)
  • Wheat germ (2 tbsp)
  • Flour (2 tbsp)
  • Garlic powder (2 tbsp)
  • Soy sauce (2 tbsp)
  • Oil for frying
  • Dash pepper

Method

  • First of all, make sure the tofu is well-pressed and well drained. Nobody will like your watery veggie burger. Also, you will have trouble forming the patties if you leave excess moisture in your tofu.
  • Once the tofu is well drained and pressed, mash it into small crumbles gently in a big bowl.
  • Then add the diced green onions, diced onions, flour, wheat germ, garlic powder, a dash of pepper and soy sauce into your bowl with the tofu.
  • Make sure you mix it thoroughly to combine well.
  • The next step is to carefully form your tofu mixture into nice patties, gently pressing everything together in order to make round patties with a thickness of about one inch.
  • It is better to use your hands for this, so make sure they are clean.
  • Fry the patties carefully in oil, preferably in a large skillet.
  • Keep frying until they are crisp and lightly golden brown, about five to six minutes on each side.
  • Add the tofu patty to the bun, and then pile on your best toppings, and enjoy!

Spiced Falafel Veggie Burger

Falafel Veggie Burger - Dandy Kat

This is an easy and hassle-free veggie burger recipe for you. Try this quick and simple spiced falafel veggie burger recipe. The healthy burger patties are ideal for vegetarians and are low in calories. It is an incredible vegetarian falafel recipe for your friends or family.

Falafels are easily the world’s best meat substitute. And this is not surprising when we look at the fact that falafels are primarily made from chickpeas. You may know that chickpeas are a real powerhouse when it comes to plant-based nutrition.

Due to their high levels of both protein and fiber, these veggie burgers are incredibly healthy, satisfying and delicious.

What is even better is that unlike standard falafels that are deep fried, the ones we have used for this recipe are only lightly pan-fried in order to make them very low in fat. You can top them with fresh tomato, lettuce, red onion, and your homemade lemon tahini for a really incredible veggie burger.
