Green Veggie Burger

The best Green Veggie Burger ever! The veggie patty uses potatoes and broccoli as a base, sunflower seeds and oats are added for texture and binding. These don’t fall apart! You can pan-fry them, grill them or bake them!

Green Veggie Burger |

In the last couple of years of being vegan, I had my fair share of veggie burgers. Some of them fell apart, some were mushy in the middle, or they just didn’t taste that exciting. So with the goal in mind to create the ultimate, delicious but not too complicated burger patty, I came up with this Green Veggie Burger and it is everything I ever wanted.

I LOVE broccoli, so of course, they had to go in. Potatoes are great for the base because they are great binder – especially together with the rolled oats. The caramelized onion and garlic are for a deeper flavor. The sunflower seeds are for texture. And that’s pretty much it. The Best Green Vegan Burger ever.

The perfect veggie patties need of course the perfect setting. Served in homemade Pretzel rolls, together with green leafy salad, cucumber slices, and creamy avocado slices. Who needs sauce if there’s avocado?!

Thank you for sharing this recipe. A recipe very interesting to try. I will tell mom to try this recipe. I'll wait for your next recipe

These were really yummy! I ate mine on a bed of greens with a little vegan ranch dressing. They were sturdy and held up well while pan frying. Will make again, maybe with purple potatoes!

Hello! This looks great and I'm excited to try it! Can you estimate how many cups 1/2 broccoli is? My broccoli's seem to come in such varying sizes! Probably any range of broccoli would work, since it's not the main binding part?

Hi Im going to try this recipe but I'm wondering do you grind up the seeds and oats at all or just put them in whole? Thank you!


Monday 21st of May 2018

I leave them whole because I like the texture in the patties, but you can totally grind them up if you prefer that!

Caution all: do not taste this mixture before cooking burgers...or you won't have any left to cook!!! Great binder tip too, all other burgers I've made have fallen apart bar this one
