In the Kitchen: Veggie Burger Recipe

Today I'm excited to post the recipe to the best meal I've ever created. No lie folks, this burger was delicious! So good, I liked it better than a beef burger. I couldn't believe it. The hubs gave it two thumbs up too, and he's a hard one to please. So, without further ado here's how you make it:

  • Heat a 50/50 mixture of cooked quinoa and black beans on medium heat in skillet. You can grease skillet with cooking oil or veggie broth. Broth is more healthy, but oil tastes better :-) I like to use avocado oil.
  • Season mixture with paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • Add mixture to toasted brioche buns. 
  • Top "burger" with spring mix, tomato, red onion, and chipotle mayo.
Chipotle mayo (this component is critical to the deliciousness of the burger):
  • Finely dice canned chipotle peppers with adobe sauce and add to mayo to taste. These are pretty spicy, so you don't need much to add kick.
Enjoy! I absolutely know you will.


  1. Wow! I'm going to try this! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Fran. I'm sure like it. Let me know how it turns out. Have a great weekend!

  2. I don't see a mention of forming patties in the recipe, and it looks like you made a loose burger. I like that. The "fail" with my veggie burgers seems to be the lack of a pattie that holds together like a meat burger. I keep quinoa and black beans as a staple so I'll definitely be enjoying this.

    1. Hi Paula that's correct its a loose burger. I have the same issue you have, though I suspect by adding a little egg to the precooked mixture will help keep it in patty form. Do try it and let me know how it turns out for you.

  3. I feel so healthy right about now! So glad I stopped in for just a bit. Simply yum at 8:43 pm at the end of the weekend!

    Blessings as we head off to the week ahead, friend ...
