View Full Version : Homemade Veggie Burger recipes???
11-16-2000, 01:41 AM
I have lots of veggie burger recipes I've collected/clipped over the years but none have been "tried and true" recipes. Does anyone actually make these?? If so can you share your recipes you KNOW turn out well? Thanks!

I guess no one really does make these!!

Actually, I have made them once (recipe with red lentils in it), but they were not very good. In fact, I threw the recipe out. I was hoping that someone would have a tried and true recipe, because I like the frozen kind, but I'm sure that a homemade one would be so much better.

I have made them at home and it seems that I lucked out and found a good recipe. They are not like the "boca burgers" type, they are somewhat more like a falafel. My husband and son also gave them a thumbs up.
I am not at home right now, but I will find the recipe and post it.

A little while ago, there was a "Veggie Burger" feature in an issue with a couple of different recipes all sounding interesting.
(I am pretty sure it was in the issue with the Banana Pudding on the cover can't rember exact date).
I made the Tex Mex Bean Burgers with Tomato Salsa and they were pretty good.
I am going to try one of the other recipes (Tabbouleh Burgers)in the same section sometime.

I've made these a couple of times. They're pretty good - closer to Gardenburgers than to Boca Burgers, which is OK with me http://www.cookinglight.com/bbs/smile.gif
Not sure where I got this recipe, so there's no attribution.
Makes 6 patties
2 T bulgur
1 lb. mushrooms, quartered (4 cups steamed)
1 c. diced onion (1/2 c. steamed)
1/2 c. rolled oats
2/3 c. brown rice
1/2 c. shredded low fat mozzarella cheese
2 T. shredded low fat cheddar cheese
2 T. low fat cottage cheese
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
2 T. cornstarch
olive oil cooking spray
1) Add 1/4 c. boiling water to the bulgur in a small bowl and let sit
about 1 hour. Steam the mushrooms for 10 minutes or until tender; then
remove them from steamer; and replace with onion. Steam onions for 10
minutes or until pieces are translucent. Keep these separate and set
2) Add 1/2 c. of water to the oats and let them soak for 10 minutes,
until soft. Drain any excess water from bulgur and oats, then combine
grains with mushrooms, rice, cheeses, and spices in blender or food
processor and pulse 4 or 5 times until ingredients are chopped fine, but
3) Pour mixture into a bowl with the onion and cornstarch, and mix well.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and set a large skillet over medium/low
heat. Spray the skillet with spray. Measure 1/2 cup at a time of the
mixture into the pan and sha0pe with a spoon into a 3 3/4 inch patty that
is approximately 1/2 inch think.
4) Cook the patties in batches for 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until
light brown on the surface. When all of the patties have been cooked in
skillet, arrange them on a lightly sprayed cooking sheet and bake for 20
to 25 minutes in the oven. Be sure to turn them over halfway through the
cooking time. Freeze when they have cooled. To serve: Can be reheated
in pan; grilled or microwaved for 30 to 35 seconds and then toasted.

Thank you so much for posting that recipe. I'll admit it, I love GardenBurgers. They make an awesome lunch (on a bagel). I'm going to have to try your recipe.

You're welcome, Cheryl.
I like mine topped with grilled veggies and salsa.
Let me know how it comes out http://www.cookinglight.com/bbs/smile.gif
