These vegan veggie burgers are made with a blend of delicious veggies, including sweet potato, mushrooms, and onions. They’re free of grains, gluten, eggs, and dairy. For Paleo/Whole 30 approved, just omit the bun and mayo.
For our family, summer is synonymous with backyard BBQ’s and picnics at the park. Burgers are on the menu a lot this time of year, and although I’m not much of a meat eater, I love me some burgers. I typically just buy veggie burgers at the grocery store, because #lazy, but a quick glance at the crappy ingredient list convicted me enough to begin making my own vegan veggie burgers.
There are a ton of vegan veggie burger recipes out there already, but most of them have beans, rice, or some other grain to hold them together. I’m currently on a strict elimination diet, trying to pinpoint which foods are causing me digestive issues, so I wanted to create a burger that didn’t rely on grains or legumes to hold them together. In this burger, I use sweet potato instead of the traditional mashed beans, and ground flaxseed, instead of rice or oats, to bind the mixture together.
I also added mushrooms and onions for lots of flavor, but instead of mixing the ingredients together raw, I sauté and caramelize them first to bring out even more flavor. What results is a moist and flavorful grain free veggie burger, which even my very picky, meat-loving family enjoyed!
I load my burgers down with alllll the goods—mayo, lettuce, avocado, pickles, and tomato, are my go-tos. I also like to add a little sriracha to my mayo for a spicy kick! It’s an AWESOME addition to these burgers too, for those of you who can take a little heat!
I hope you give these a try! Please let me know how you enjoy them by leaving a review below. 🙂 Enjoy your weekend, friends!Print
