All-Star Veggie Burger

All-Star Veggie Burger


"Use soy. No, use beans. No, use oats. No, use rice. Hey, why not use them all? This veggie burger is an alternative to eating its beefy cousin (and can be used together). It's high in fiber and as a stand alone patty, actually tastes pretty good. Once you layer the ketchup, the mustard, pickles, etc. you won't be able to tell the difference."

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the mashed garbanzo beans and basil. Mix in the oat bran, quick oats, and rice; the mixture should seem a little dry.
  2. In a separate bowl, mash the tofu with your hands, trying to squeeze out as much of the water as possible. Drain of the water, and repeat the process until there is hardly any water worth pouring off. It is not necessary to remove all of the water. Pour the barbeque sauce over the tofu, and stir to coat.
  3. Stir the tofu into the garbanzo beans and oats. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and sage; mix until well blended.
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Form patties out of the bean mixture, and fry them in hot oil for about 5 minutes per side. Serve as you would burgers.

Greetings everyone, I hope that you enjoy the recipe. Some recommendations to share, this was intended to be a vegan burger, but I recommend adding egg for those who are not strictly vegan. Als...

Love it, but made a few little changes a usual. :) I had only kidney beans on hand. I added one little can of red beets, including juice, for color and flavor, and mixed it in a blender along w...

Great flavor, but I would suggest using extra firm tofu. Otherwise the paties tend to fall apart.

Many reviewers suggested adding egg and I concur. I also substituted A-1 sauce for the BBQ sauce with good results. Texture was appealing and leftovers warmed well as patties and crumbles in t...

This All-Star Veggie Burger gets 5-stars! I am pleasantly surprised at how flavorful it turned out to be. Used all the ingredients listed except for the dried sage which is replaced with thyme. ...

Im not a vegetarian and this meal was fabulous!! I did add an egg which helped (kinda the meatloaf effect). I also added about 1/4 cup Bisquick for it to stick together even better.

I should have read the reviews before I made this. It definitely needs an egg or something to bind the mixture together. I used wheat bran instead of oat bran, and I added more of it to the mixt...

Yummy recipe! I will definetly make it again! I made it with ketchup mixed with a ground red pepper spice instead of the barbeque.

We enjoyed the flavor of these. They do, as other reviews said, tend to fall apart a bit if you're not careful - it's that darn tofu! Not making the patties too thick, using a very wide spatul...
