This recipe is definitely a winner. They can be made in larger quantities and they freeze well.

Black beans may be substituted with kidney beans. Pecans, almonds, and cashews may be used instead of walnuts.

This recipe can be modified to use the herbs that you like.


These burgers are delicious served with my flavorful Baked Jicama Fries or Oven Baked Potato Wedges.

*I decided to redo the recipe to make it gluten-free as well. My readers kept asking me about substitutions and because it’s such a popular recipe I decided to go ahead and do a makeover.

This version is very delicious, my eight-year-old Daevyd, helped me to make these burgers and he enjoyed eating his burger so much. He kept telling me how good it tasted! He is very picky and he actually wanted another burger!

  1. This looks awesome and I can’t wait to try it. Stupid question, but where is the print button on your page so I can print one page instead of the entire 12 pages that pops up?

    I very much want to try this recipe. I love all of the spices.
    I am going to have to make some substitutes since I cannot eat soy or flax seeds. I know how to substitute flax seeds for another binder.
    I was wondering if you could substitute the aminos for 2 TBS Liquid Smoke & additional water to make up 1/2 cup.
    We just purchased your cookbook & are eager to begin trying new recipes.


    Best veggie burger recipe ever! My 8 year old, unfortunately, did not like it, and it may have been his biased attitude towards veggie burgers. The rest of us, including my 13 year old, loved it! I l love all the healthy additions and actually had everything on hand. Thank you for sharing!

      Thank you for your feedback so happy you loved them. I hope that the taste will grow on your 8 year old!


    Like your recipe a lot. So glad you made it without oil. I’ll try it in the next few weeks. Thanks for sharing.

      Awesome Nancy, hope you love it. Most of my recipes can be easily made without oil. Just substitute water or veggie broth when sauteing! Pumpkin puree or applesauce great in baked goods.
