There’s nothing more delicious you can throw on the grate than a veggie burger. Just slather some hummus or vegan mayo on a whole-wheat bun, and you have got a party going. Here are five veggie burgers from Holy Cow! that are sturdy enough to stand up to the grill and delicious enough to have your family and friends lining up for more.
A happy Fourth to everyone!
A hefty, hearty burger with the nutritious goodness of oats, pinto beans, black beans and carrots. This is my go-to burger and it’s the best. Click here for the Bean and Oats Veggie Burger recipe.
Chickpeas, bulgur and harissa give this burger a flavor to die for. But why die when you can grill? These burgers are hefty enough to stand up to the grate, and heaven on a bun. Click here for the Moroccan Chickpea Veggie Burger recipe.
My secret ingredient, garam masala, gives these burgers a surprise, smoky hit. Quinoa, kidney beans and kale make them extra delicious and nutritious. Click here for the Quinoa and Bean Veggie Burger recipe.
This beet burger is simplicity itself– a steak of juicy, meaty beet sandwiched between caramelized onions and a creamy chipotle cashew hummus. Click here for the Beet Veggie Burger recipe.
With clean Asian flavors, this burger is made with three dark powerhouses: black beans, black rice, and eggplant. They are sturdy enough to go on the grill and come out tasting fabulous. Click here for the Black Bean and Black Rice Veggie Burger recipe.
The best — and whole wheat — hamburger buns. Bake up a batch once and you’ll never buy them from the store again. These are perfect to sandwich any of the burgers above. Click here for the Whole Wheat Hamburger Bun recipe.
It might not seem obvious, but a naan is the perfect bread to cradle your burger. No need to fuss around with yeast or rising times, and better still, you can just cook this up on the grill. The dough for this naan, leavened with baking powder and baking soda, comes together in an instant and its so pillowy and delicious that no one will care you didn’t make it the “traditional” way.
