Homemade Veggie Burger

I came up with this recipe yesterday while trying to think of a new veggie burger that I could make quickly for lunch.  We really liked the results, so I thought I'd share them here.

1 can kidney beans
1 can white beans (northern beans)
1 cup bread crumbs
1 packet taco seasoning
2 tbs garlic powder

Green Onions

Drain almost all liquid from beans.  Puree in a food processor.  Put in a bowl and mix with seasonings and bread crumbs (add extra bread crumbs if paste is still too runny to make patties).  Make patties.  Add cheese if you'd like to make it a cheese burger.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes (you might want to experiment with this because I'm not really trusting my oven's temperature these days because it's been rather inconsistent lately).  Serve on a bun (I added ketchup, mustard and green onions).


  1. You could serve it as a taco burger too. With Salsa and sour cream instead of ketchup and mustard if you wanted to change it up. I may try this!

  2. I have a favorite veggie burger in my house, but this one is quicker. I'll have to keep it in mind for when I need something faster!

  3. Oh my gosh... if only I wasn't in college without the equipment to make this! Looks super!

  4. Does it stay together well? There's a veggie burger that I would love to try from Trader Joe's but one of the ingredients is 'cellulose gum'- I assume that works like egg in a non-vegan burger


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
