Veggie burgers can be a delicious way to add healthy proteins, grains, and vegetables to your diet, but buying the pre-made stuff can be expensive (and less healthy, as some of those fake meats are science experiments with long, unpronounceable ingredient lists). I am constantly experimenting with ways to make my own at home for the sake of variety. My experiments don’t always work, but sometimes they do. This one is a success, and has the best consistency so far of any of my veggie burger attempts. And all without flour!
This recipe is loaded with protein and fiber; even the fat in it is the good kind (Omega 3 from olive oil and walnuts). I usually will sautee some onions and garlic for these recipes, but accept that many people (myself included) sometimes want something quicker with less prep time. So this recipe calls for onion and garlic powder instead, which is perfectly acceptable. Try not to judge.
