Vegan Curry Veggie Burgers

It’s hard to believe that it’s already February. A thick pile of snow covers the ground, but not the main roads. We’ve been getting the best kind of snow lately. The light, fluffy kind that looks like a dream as it falls. This variety of snow happens to be easy to shovel off of the driveway, too, so it’s an all-star snowflake.

That pretty snow fell as I made my way to a girly brunch with Cindy and Megan on Saturday. I had the best time hanging out with those gals. We brunched it up right with a sticky bun, chicken and waffles, tuna noodle casserole and steak and eggs. The bloody Mary bar was a massive display of pickles, olives, hot sauces and the unique twist of meats, cheeses and pretzel rods. I definitely splurged on that meal and that’s when I try to balance it all out.

I have wanted to make veggie burgers for a long time, but it can be difficult to find a good recipe. This one looked like a winner in both flavor and ingredients. They happen to be vegan, diary-free and gluten-free, too. These guys have lots of great flavor and benefit from both a bake in the oven and a quick sauté in the skillet. The result is a tasty caramelized exterior with a tender center.

You can make the brown rice and lentils a day or two before to make these burgers come together faster on the day you want to make them. This recipe makes 14 veggie burgers and you can halve the recipe or freeze the extra burgers, like I did. If you want to skip the bun, we really like the baked veggie burgers over salad greens with a homemade creamy dressing.

  1. I’ve been considering veggie burgers for my cleanse (which begins this Thursday), and so this recipe comes at the perfect time. I love beef burgers and have a skeptical attitude toward veggie burgers, but your endorsement means a lot. I may just give this recipe a go.

    • Jess – Gosh, I love a good beef burger, too. I’m not sure a veggie burger can compare, but we did enjoy the flavor and texture of these. I had a sweet potato/quinoa/curry burger at a place last summer that were pretty great which gave me hope that I could make a decent veggie burger. I hope you like them!

  2. I am starting a 30 day diet of no gluten and no dairy to see how I feel…and this fits the bill! I will definitely be trying these this month. Thanks, Nicole!

    • Laura – I want to hear all about your 30 day experiment! I have a friend that has started the year off without gluten and dairy and she’s feeling great!

  3. I love a good veggie burger and after those meal-like bloody mary’s, these sound perfect!
    ps, I’m totally with you on the snow–it’s so perfect and soft and sparkly! and, easy to shovel, ha!

  4. wow these really so delicious. I am always looking for the perfect veggie burger. Maybe this is it?! Will have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.
