10 Best Veggie Burger Recipes in the World | Hurry The Food Up

This is it: our definitive list of the best veggie burger recipes in the world! Veggie burgers are a tricky one to get right and there are definitely some dud vegetarian burger recipes out there.

I am sure I am not alone in having followed a recipe faithfully and ended up with bland mushy blobs which fall apart in the pan!

A good homemade veggie burger, however, once you get there, is healthy, full of flavour and easy to make.

What’s more, they are super versatile – if you have a foolproof recipe, like this black bean burger recipe, you can use that as a base to experiment with, by adding veg, or cheese, or different veggie burger toppings.

How to make the best veggie burger

While researching the best veggie burger recipes in the world, I discovered a few tips and tricks to make sure that your homemade veggie burgers do not disappoint (I’ve also done the same for vegan burger recipes if that’s more your speed).

The most important tip I learnt was, if you are using beans, to pop your beans in the oven for a while, before you mash them into patties, so that they dry out a bit.

This means your burger is more likely to hold together and have good texture.

The best vegetarian burger recipes in the world are not just bean burgers! If you aren’t a fan of beans, you can try out a meaty halloumi burger recipe, a light, juicy, mushroom veggie burger or an extra-healthy quinoa veggie burger recipe.
