The Real Thing Vegan Burgers

Vegan Burger

I have been on a mission to create a great vegan burger – one that is both loaded with protein and healthy ingredients, but also tastes incredibly like the burgers I grew up eating as my father fired up the grill.  Hence, the liquid smoke.  I think this is as close as I can get – so I am posting the recipe and hope that you will enjoy it!  I had planned to grill these but unfortunately, it was pouring outside. No matter – they tasted great baked in the oven. However, next time I plan to grill them and am fairly certain they will hold together very nicely on the grill.

  • 2 T ground flax seed
  • 1/2 c walnuts
  • 1/2 c cooked brown rice
  • 15 oz black beans
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 t vegan worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 t liquid smoke
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 c plain bread crumbs

In a small bowl, combine the flax with 5 T water and let sit for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, process the walnuts until ground fine.

Add the rice, beans, worcestershire, onion, smoke, salt and moistened flax.

Process until smooth.

Transfer to a bowl and stir in the bread crumbs.

Form into 8 patties.

Grill or bake on sheet sprayed with cooking spray at 350 for 30 minutes.

Let cool a bit before eating or, although still yummy, the texture may be a little too soft.

  1. When are you starting a catering service or at least a website where I can order dinner, swing by, pick it up & feed my family something other than veggie burriots?
