Veggie Patties

I was never a big fan of those Boca burgers and I'm not a huge fan of tofu imitations. However these burgers are my favorite go-to for a vegetarian dinner. If you like beans than you will love this! It does not have any funky flavor to it or a gummy texture, it is simply just beans and veggies. I saw this a while back on Guy's Big Bite and thought I would give veggie burgers one last shot. I am glad that I did because I love these. I make a big batch of them and then freeze them for later. Now the trick to forming the patty is to have a burger press. You lay down plastic wrap in your burger mold and put the burger mixture in the mold, fold the plastic wrap over the mixture and push down to compact the mixture into the mold. Then just throw your veggie burgers in the refrigerator or freezer. Now in case I did not explain that well enough here is the video so you can see what I am talking about. Now you can top the burger anyway you'd normally top a burger. I had avocado, caramelized onions and peppers on my burger but this is a burger we are talking about, so top it with whatever floats your boat.

  • 2 ounces olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons diced black olives
  • 2 tablespoons diced red bell peppers
  • 1 teaspoon diced jalapeno
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons diced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon diced artichoke
  • 4 ounces black beans, drained
  • 4 ounces chickpeas, drained
  • 4 ounces white beans, drained
  • 6 ounces rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 egg

  1. In a medium saute pan over medium heat, add 1-ounce olive oil and all raw vegetables except beans. Saute until translucent. Remove and cool.
  2. Add veggies to beans and mix thoroughly. Add all dry ingredients along with the egg. Thoroughly mix all ingredients and form into 4 patties, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. In saute pan add 1-ounce olive oil, and cook patties 2 to 3 minutes per side

I have been seeing a ton of recipes for veggie patties that I want to try, yours looks the best though! I've made black bean burgers and black bean cakes but nothing like this. I can't wait to try them! I'll make sure to link back to you when I post them. I have some bean burritos I'm planning to make tomorrow, thanks for another great recipe!!
