Burger Bash: Grill Out, Vegan Style

As we have previously discussed, summer is the season of cookouts, and for our omnivorous friends, that usually means meat-based burgers all around.  Thankfully, we know better than that!  With these recipes, you can whip up badass burgers galore made from chickpeas, black beans, lentils, or even just portobello mushrooms.  Check out this list of vegan patties, burgers, and other awesome things to spice up your annual cookout.

BASES FOR BURGERS (If you want to make your own special recipe):

Chickpeas! Black, White or Red Beans! Potatoes! Lentils! Or simply a big ol’ portobello.

BINDERS (to make it all stick together):

Oats! Beans! Quinoa! Ground Cashews or Almonds! Maybe even a little agave nectar if you are feeling sweet.


They must be flavorful, but not assertive.  They must stick together while cooking, but still be tender.  No lumps! Your veggie pattie must be a single texture for maximum enjoyment. 😀
