Falafel Veggie Burgers

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on

I love veggie burgers.  There, I said it.  I love them!  The possibilities are endless, you can use any kind of bean, grain, nut, etc, let alone the choice you have with vegetables.  Really, they’re awesome.  I love these so much that I think my husband may never look at a veggie burger the same way again.  He did love these when I first made them, so that at least counts for something, right?

These do look a little crumbly, I think I added a little too much breadcrumbs, so just be careful.  When adding breadcrumbs, you should add the amount in the recipe and then let it sit for 30 minutes so that the crumbs can absorb the moisture instead of just mixing in more right away like I did.  They still taste great even if they’re a little dry, but if you realize they’re too dry before cooking, just add another egg(or even half of one) and you’ll be good to go!

Sorry to drag things out but I’ll post the recipe for my oven fries tomorrow.  They are so yummy and well worth the wait while they get crispy in the oven 🙂

Good tip on the breadcrumbs! I guess that’s why half the time my veggie/bean burgers fall apart! Have you ever used chia seeds before instead of an egg? I’ve experimented a few times with them and I honestly can’t tell you which variation I like better!

Sometime I HAVE to try a falafel burger! I’ve only had falafels once and they were a little crunchy, haha…but this looks great!

I love veggies but to be honest I have never tried veggie burger in my life. Your burger looks really tasty with all the seasonings you added! What a delicious looking burger Heidi!

I really like the idea of using things other than soy and mushrooms for veggie burgers.
This sounds really delicious!

This looks like a meal that I have at Maoz. I am just like you, I can have them everyday.

I LOVE veggie burgers too, my husband and I eat homemade burgers all the time!!! Chickpeas make awesome patties don’t they and these look super quick and simple and so tasty!!


15 Heidi @ Food Doodles July 6, 2011 at

I agree, chickpeas are the best 😀 They can take on so many other flavors, they’re great.
Thank you!

Gosh, Heidi, these veggie burgers look incredible. I love them too, but I’ve never ventured to make them myself. I think, I’m ready now after your amazing write-up.
Hope your summer is going well.

Quinoa is another fantastic ingredient to use in veggie burgers if your don’t eat eggs.


21 Heidi @ Food Doodles July 12, 2011 at

Do you use quinoa to hold your veggie burgers together? I’m so curious about that! They do add a good dose of protein though which is great 😀

I love veggie food and since my very good friend is vegetarian, I should really cook this for her. I bet it is so good.



23 Carla Riley July 12, 2011 at

Yes I use quinoa for veggie burgers all the time. Just over cook the quinoa slightly to make it stickier. Quinoa is just the best thing ever! If you do eat eggs you can do some awesome things with quinoa and baking the eggs like a casserole! I could go on for days about fun food things to try!
