Filled with healthy veggies and infused with delicious flavours, this Vegan Walnut and Veggie Burger recipe requires only 10 ingredients and yields a scrumptious authentic-feeling burger pattie that is easy to devour.
How to Make Veggie Burgers
Start with chopping and frying up some onion, carrot, mushroom and garlic. This gives the burgers a delicious bbq flavour and helps bind the mixture.
Next, we blend those fried veggies with some flour, walnuts, tomato paste, soy sauce, maple syrup and paprika in a food processor until it’s scoopable but still has small walnut bits. Scoop out the mixture 2 tablespoons at a time and flatten into a round patty on your baking tray. You should be able to get at least 5 patties from this amount.
Pop them into the oven for 15 minutes, give them a flip and cook for another 10 minutes or until you’re happy with their colour.
I recommend serving them with the “Special Sauce” made with vegan mayonnaise, hot mustard and ketchup in the recipe below, however, they’ll taste great with BBQ sauce, plain ketchup, relish or smashed avocado.
