Anatomy of a Vegan Burger
So what makes a great vegan burger? A delectable vegan burger starts with a delicious plant-based burger patty. These can be made from a variety of ingredients like beans, lentils, rice, quinoa, kale, sweet potato, soy, mushrooms, tempeh, and more.
The Holy Grail of plant-based burger making is a patty that tastes delicious and also has that perfect texture that sticks together and doesn’t crumble but is done on the inside and just right on the outside.
Many plant-based burger patties, like the ones listed below, are a mix of protein-rich beans, soy, or tempeh and starches like rice, oats, or quinoa. It’s actually super easy to devise your own recipes just by picking one of each, adding your own favorite spices, and blending them together.
Plant-Based Burger Toppings
The usual suspects are great on any plant-based burger. Lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, ketchup, and mustard are great places to start. And don’t forget the vegan cheese! Don’t always limit yourself to the tried and true. Some of the burgers below have out-of-the-ordinary toppings that you may not have considered before.
However you make them, vegan plant-based burgers can be every bit as delicious as any burger!
