Veggie Burger Recipe
This is a really delicious veggie burger recipe, I couldn’t stop nibbling! But serve the vegetarian burgers on buns with the usual trimmings, or with my guacamole dip recipe.

There are some tricks to getting them perfect, though:
Prepare the burgers the day before, and then refrigerate overnight on baking sheets, covered in baking sheets.
- This will help keep them together, and some of the moisture from the vegetables will go away.
- Heat the oil in the frying pan well first, but on medium heat. Slide the patties in the pan carefully.
- Only fry a few at a time so the patties are easy to flip. Fry the veggie burgers for at least 4 minutes on each side to a golden color. Avoid the temptation to flip them back and forth!
- If you absolutely want to check the color, lift with a spatula and check underneath, then slide back gently in the pan again.
After they are fried like this, they keep together very well. You
can keep them in the fridge if you want for a few days, and warm up in
the oven just before serving.
With a bit or preparation and planning this veggie burger recipe is easy to make, and taste really, really good- at least these vegetarian burgers top my list so far!
