AMAZING HOMEMADE VEGGIE BURGERS
Published March 7th, 2021 on Nikki Vegan
These Homemade Vegan Veggie Burgers will blow your mind! They’re incredibly flavorful and the texture is just right. Not too mushy, nothing artificial, and they’re packed with plant-based protein…and fiber! And vitamins! And a bunch of other good stuff but mostly, they’re just delicious and way better than store-bought veggie burgers! You’ve GOT to try these!
Wait so these homemade veggie burgers are made with BEETS?
Yep but trust me, they’re divine! Beets on their own can be sweet and a little earthy…not exactly what you think of when you think of a hearty burger but the magic of beets is that they provide a meat-like texture that is right on the money! The mixture even looks like ground beef…it’s kind of nuts!
As for the flavor, the secret is in the layering. I made sure to build this recipe with meaty seasonings like garlic, smoked paprika, and cumin and then I layered in umami-rich ingredients like miso and tomato paste to add some depth and richness. Just wait until you smell these burgers cooking up, it’s intoxicatingly delicious!
The key ingredient here is Vegan Worceshire sauce, which can be found at most grocery stores in the ketchup section or online. If you don’t have a bottle at home, stock up! Because it’s a magical ingredient that adds so much flavor to everything from vegan burgers and tacos to Meatloaf Muffins. It’s a game changer and since a little goes a long way, it lasts a very long time in the fridge. 10/10 recommend getting a bottle asap!
More Reasons to Love These Homemade Veggie Burgers:
- They’re a major crowd pleaser!
- Plant-based and packed with good-for-you nutrients
- Meal-prep and freezer friendly
- Great served as a classic burger but these are also delicious on top of a big green salad with avocado or you can slice it up and tuck inside warm pita pockets with mixed salad, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, and tahini sauce, fresh herbs, and a squeeze of lemon. Such a satisfying lunch or dinner option!
