I mentioned earlier this week that we made food for over 60 people on Saturday for my mom’s bus tour. One of the things we offered to the guests was veggie burgers. I had to make homemade veggie burgers because they are so much better. I have made this recipe a bunch of times. It comes from Angela at Oh She Glows. Every single recipe that I have made from her has been amazing. My recipe below is actually different than hers. I intended to follow her directions, but I totally mixed them and then realized that I really, really did not follow the directions.
Her burgers are delicious and I highly recommend them. I wanted to share with you what I did. I am totally in love with them. They are feel very meaty when you bite into them. My mom tasted a patty by itself when I made them and informed me that they did not taste like beef. In case you are wondering, they do not taste like a hamburger. I think they are a million times better.
I topped mine with stadium mustard (btw if you have not tried it yet, it is my new fav mustard), aioli, lettuce, and tomato. Best. Veggie Burger. Ever. Even better is that I have a bag full of them in the freezer for a fast weeknight meal.
