Mild Chipotle

Veggie Burgers

Okay, so, I do eat meat (hence my basic meatball recipe linked here >                              ) and I do love a good beef burger BUT a few months ago I tried my very first veggie burger and my oh my they are tasty. They can, however, be a bit pricy sometimes. They're not too bad BUT when I can make 12 burgers at home for less than $3 compared to 4 burgers at the store for $4-$5....I say let's make these bad boys at home! Plus, you can choose whatever vegetables and seasonings you want. I like to eat these topped with an egg on an English muffin or plain on the side of a meal. It's a great way to incorporate more vegetables. I don't usually use alternative flours but lately, I've been experimenting to try and give options for those with dietary restrictions. Gluten-free flours are usually more expensive and if you don't prefer them, feel free to use any flour you have. Just make sure you research measurement conversions. 

You can make these into nuggets for the kiddos, for a cookout with friends and family, or prep them for the week! They can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Tiff Tips

  • If the mixture is too wet, add more flour

  • Have some flour on your hands while forming the patties

  • Add as many vegetables as you'd like, the more the merrier, and adjust other ingredients as necessary

  • If you don't have tahini (or olive oil), you can sub a different fat such as nut butter or any type of cooking oil

  • Let the burgers completely cool on a rack before eating/packaging so they can set. They shouldn't fall apart

  • You can definitely blend vegetables together instead of individually but the food processor I used was too small to do that 

  • I have not experimented with other flours but any type should work. The measurements will be very different though so you'll have to play around with it or look up conversions. I don't know about almond flour but I've heard that cornstarch can replace the tapioca flour with a 1:2 ratio meaning you use half as much cornstarch as tapioca 

  • They sell almond flour at Costco for a pretty good price if you're looking to save some money
