Quick and simple veggie burgers recipe made with fresh veggies. The roasted veggies are mashed and turned into a patties for the veggie burger.
I have been very very lazy this week!
And it is evident in my blog! I have posted only one recipe in the last nine days. That is very sad.
Finally, I got around to making this yummy veggie burgers recipe.
It was totally worth the wait.
I love creating a veggie burger using all fresh veggies. It gives the burger a nice “meaty” texture. This recipe has eggplants in it.
I think it is a very creative way to use eggplants. Once roasted, they will blend perfectly into patties.
This veggie burgers works great when grilled. Grilling the patties of this veggie burgers brings out all the natural flavors.
The other option is fry the burger which is what I did. I didn’t have access to a BBQ grill. Frying it may be unhealthy, but, the taste is so good.
The first thing I did was to grill the vegetables. In my case, I used my oven to roast the vegetables. However, you can wrap the vegetables in foil, including the peas and roast them on your grill. That will bring out the rosemary and oregano
Make hamburger recipes for your meat eaters and make this vegetarian recipe for us.
This burger is perfect for any grilling season. If you are having a BBQ on labor day to celebrate the end of summer, this burger is a good way to do so.
Serve this veggie burgers at your next bbq party and your vegetarian and vegan guests will thank you.
If you don’t have an outdoor grill, use an oven safe grill which does a wonderful job.
I have also made a falafal burger recipe that is beyond delicious. Check it out and tell me which one veggie burger recipe you like.
