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

    1. I tried to leave a comment early this morning, but it looks like it didn’t go through! Anyway, I wanted to tell you that these look really wonderful! They remind me of Indian potato patties, but bigger! I can tell you for sure that I have lazy days and I always wonder how other bloggers are able to keep up with it all! October through December of last year was a challenge for me because I was recovering from a surgery and it was hard to get up the energy to do anything. Glad that’s over and now I can focus again! Hang in there–you’re doing such beautiful food!

      1. Thank you so much, Tracey. I am sorry you had trouble leaving a comment. I had other complaints too so I will look into it.

        I am sorry you had to go through surgery last year. I know that it can be very difficult and i hope you have recovered well. I am sending you tons of hugs and hope you never have to go through that again.

        Thank you for the encouraging words you said to me. I am sure you and I are super great bloggers because we can admit that we have lazy days.

    2. Hiya 🙂

      First saw your veggie burger pics on Twitter thanks to @sweetnsvry. They look delicious enough to make an omnivore like myself gladly grab a mitt full of these burgers. Despite the handle “The Burger Nerd” believe it or not, I love vegetables. Meat may have the savory side of my affection but nothing truly beats the vibrancy of fresh fruit and veg. Thanks for sharing your recipes.

      1. Thank you, Trevor! You are the most wonderful omnivore for saying these kind words. Good of you to want to try some for yourself, you won’t miss the meat in this recipe. The patties are very meaty.

        I have seen pics of the burgers you put on your site. They are so tempting that I wanted to try them, despite the meat in them. 😉

    3. OK…maybe I’m the second blogger that needs time to just walk away for a couple days. I try to keep up with everything we need to do as bloggers, but sometimes I just shut it down and watch some shows. You’re not alone.

      These veggie burgers look great. Not sure if I could get my meat and potatoes husband to eat them, but I would make them just for me. Love that you roasted your veggies. So much more flavor.

      1. Thank you so much, Sylvia! I knew there would be bloggers who like to take a few days off. Glad you are one of the “honest” bloggers. 🙂 After a few days off, I come back refreshed and have a renewed love for my blog.

        Let me tell you something about “meat and potato” types of guys. 🙂 they can surprise you. I once served vegetarian lasagna to one such guy and he became a believer! To this day, he wants to eat vegetarian food once a week.

        So, give it a try with your husband and he might surprise you.

      1. Thank you so much Lori. Glad you liked the color combination. Colorful dishes is one way to entice non-belivers. By non-believers, I mean those that think vegetarian food is horrible. 🙂
