The Best Veggie Burgers Ever

26 Aug

Oh, I’m sorry… Did that seem a little extreme?

These vegan veggie burgers are seriously awesome. I pretty much used this recipe by The Healthy Maven with a few changes. I’ll post my changes just for the heck of it because the flavors worked SO well!

Try these. You won’t be disappointed.


The Best Vegan Veggie Burgers


1 Small Sweet Potato, cooked, without skin (I popped mine into the microwave for five minutes after poking holes with a fork)

1 Tbsp Coconut Oil (Or any oil you want to use for sauteing)

2 Stalks of Celery

1/3 Yellow Bell Pepper, diced

1/4 Red Onion, diced

About 5 Mushrooms, diced

2 Cloves Garlic, minced

Handful of Fresh Cilantro, diced

1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats

1 Tbsp Mustard (I used one with a good spicy zing to it.)



Dash of Curry Powder

Dash of Oregano

Dash of Cayenne


Saute mushrooms, onions, bell pepper, celery, and garlic in coconut oil until the onions become slightly translucent. Add in cilantro and spices. Saute for about five more minutes, so the flavors can disperse and develop. Take off heat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Let mixture cool for about five minutes. Add sweet potato and mixture to a blender or food processor. (Vitamix to the rescue!) Add in mustard. Pulse until it all begins to combined, but leave it slightly chunky. Add in oats and blend until a little more incorporated. Form patties by hand. (Mine made three good sized patties.) Place each patty on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip and bake the other side for 10 more minutes. Turn oven to broil and flip patties again. Broil for about one minute. Flip patties again and broil the other side for about one minute.

This last broil creates a nice crisp on the outside while the insides remain creamy and heavenly.

Seriously so good!
