Let’s Talk Veggie Burgers

September 11, 2009

Last night, CD and I went out to eat with my family at Bricktops here in Nashville. I pulled a Heather, and much to the chagrin of my fellow dining companions, I proceeded to order the Ahi Tuna Salad…but then requested that it be topped with a veggie burger rather than tuna.ย  The chef happily obliged.

Pickeled ginger + veggie worked.

Pickled ginger + veggie burger...why not? Notice the evil frisee trees peeking out. ๐Ÿ™‚

CD and my brother kept getting the evil eye from me every time they tried to snag a bite of my burger.ย  The menu gives no clues as to what the ingredients are, but I’m thinking it’s some kind of brown rice/bean concoction.ย  I couldn’t quite figure out the seasonings/spices either, but it was perfect, absolutely perfect!

Although I do eat meat, I’m a huge fan of veggie burgers, and I’m not talking the Boca or Morningstar varieties.ย  I can’t do either due to the soy content.ย  If I’m going to purchase frozen veggie burgers at all, my patties of choice are Sunshine Burgers as they are both tasty and soy-free. Only problem is the price, and I keep praying they’ll appear in the freezer section at Costco.ย  Costco people, are you reading this?

Anyway, I used to also love the veggie burger at Houston’s here in Nashville and was almost in tears when the restaurant closed.ย  If you have a Houston’s near you, go there tonight and order their veggie burger with a side of couscous.ย  You will not be disappointed.ย  Several months ago, I tried recreating their recipe, and you can read about it here.ย  My burgers turned out okay but not nearly as good as the restaurant’s version.

My favorite recipe for homemade veggie burgers is from the Country Life Vegetarian Cookbook.ย  I have no pictures as I have not made them in ages, but I’ll share the recipe with you anyway.ย  So good, and they remind me of my beloved Garden Herb Sunshine Burgers…only much cheaper. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunburger Patties:
  • 2 cup grated carrots
  • 2 cups sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 1.25 cup tomato juice
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 TBS onion powder
Clean, grate and measure carrots. ย Place in bowl.. ย Grind sunflower seeds in blender or food processor until fine. ย Add to carrots. In skillet saute onions in water until soft. Add to bowl along with remaining ingredients. ย Stir together well. ย Using 1/3 cup portions, place on oiled cookie sheet and form into patties. ย Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. ย Turn over and bake an additional 15 minutes.
These are my go to dish when we’re having several people over for dinner and 1 or 2 of them are vegetarian. ย The meat-eaters ALWAYS ask for this recipe, and these burgers usually disappear before the meat dish. ย They are really good served with the following sauce.
Cashew White Sauce
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 TBSP onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 2.5 cups additional water
  • 1 TBS dried parsley

Blend first five ingredients on high 1-2 minutes until creamy. ย While blender is running, pour in remaining water and blend briefly. ย Pour into saucepan and add parsley. ย Cook over medium-high heat stirring constantly until thickened.

How about you? Are you super disappointed when you order a veggie burger in a restaurant, and it’s nothing but a Boca pattie?ย  Do you have your own favorite recipe for homemade veggie burgers?ย  Anyone know Houston’s secret recipe?ย  Please share.
Exciting news – I tried a new grain this morning for breakfast.ย  Any guesses as to what it might be?ย  Be sure to check back soon for a full report and have a wonderful weekend!

    that veggie burger looks great! I have yet to find the Sunshine burgers, but I want to try them! I’ve only seen good reviews.

    new grain, huh…wheatberries? kamut? you never know with you ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. September 11, 2009 8:55 am

    I’ve been meaning to make my own veggie burgers…thanks for reminding me!

  3. September 11, 2009 8:55 am

    Thanks for the recipe!! These sound amazing! Hmm… i think your new grain is farro ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like the occasional Boca flame grilled burger but not usually. I’ve had some good black bean burgers at restaurants but I’m not likely to try making them myself. I actually like chicken and turkey burgers if I’m going to have something in burger form.

    I think you will try farro…I’ve not seen it on your blog but for some reason I think you’ve already tried things like wheatberries and barley.

  5. September 11, 2009 9:01 am


    I must be in the minority but I LOVE Boca burgers. In fact I still lie awake crying all night because I can no longer find the enormous and tasty Boca Sausages (so good, that even HUSBANDS can’t tell it’s not real meat!)

    Thanks for the recipe- you know I love me some sunflower seeds ๐Ÿ˜€

    Have a great day, friend- hope you’re settle back from ALL your travels!


  6. September 11, 2009 9:04 am

    yummmmm what a great looking dinner! I love the chickpea burgers from 101 cookbooks and I have made some awesome black bean burgers as wel. I haven’t tried a lot of the ones in the freezer section because they usually contain either soy (as you noted) or mushrooms (which I do not like!). Hope you guys have a great weekend

  7. September 11, 2009 9:21 am

    Mmm that veggie burger looks great! Awesome recipe, Heather! Thanks for the comment on my blog btw. I really appreciate it!

    Ohhhh I remember Houston’s. I ate at the one in Dallas and I ordered their veggie burger, it was too die for. Now this was a few years ago but I remember licking my plate it was so good.

  9. September 11, 2009 9:27 am

    Your homemade veggie burger sounds good. Honestly, I don’t think I have ever ordered a veggie burger in a restaurant. We have Houston’s where I used to live in OC though. When I next visit I will try one now!
    Have you tried Amy’s veggie burgers at all? I don’t know about the soy content, but the Texas and CA flavors are really yummy ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. September 11, 2009 9:38 am

    I’ve gotten some pretty good veggie burgers at local bar/pubs here in town, which I wouldn’t have necessarily expected. I’m curious to try to make some of my own, but I have to admit to being a little suspicious that those won’t be weird.

    How many servings does that veggie burger recipe make?

  12. September 11, 2009 9:39 am

    That recipe looks great! I make similar ones, using mashed beans or lentils instead of seeds, and ketchup instead of tomato juice. Restaurant veggie burgers are so hit/miss… I love the ones that are vegetables/beans rather than fake meat.

  13. September 11, 2009 9:42 am

    Those two recipes look delicious! I’ll have to try them sometime.

    By the way, I mentioned to you that I am really trying to cut back on sugar (even from fruit) and I’ve lost like 3 pounds (real pounds) without even trying! And without much exercise. And my mood have been greatly improved! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for encouraging us and speaking up, even if some criticism is received!

    And lastly, I absolutely adore Nashville! I’ve spent about 2 weeks there earlier this year and I really love that city! I stayed in Hillsboro village and explored downtown. Fido is my favorite coffee shop, ever!

    Are you using the giant bag of quinoa for breakfast? We bought that bag from CostCo awhile back and just last night I was thinking about using it for bfast. I did green oats instead for the first time after seeing them on the blogs. What?! So good! When I was in Washington and Canada I had some of the best veggie burgers. They do it right up in hippie country let me tell you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. September 11, 2009 9:47 am

    I am guessing Millet… ?? well see.

    I totally adore the fact that you had the nerve to ask for a substitute and happy to hear they happily obliged…even more stoked you got jealousy reactions from the table!

    woo hoo for you

    I will say though, I would not have passed up seared ahi for the world! ( but that is just me)

    and I love veggie burgers and I think I am adding your recipe to my “to try” list.

    looks so tasty!

  16. September 11, 2009 10:01 am

    My favorite veggie burgers, hands down, are made by a local company here in Oregon: Chez Gourmet by Marie. Yum-my!

    I worry about soy content as well. Now, the tuna sounded YUMMY.hehe…cc

    I love veggie burgers and am always looking for good recipes.

    I don’t much care for the soy ones either. I like veggie burgers, not fake-meat burgers.

    I really like the ones I get at Costco, in the fresh section (though you can freeze them, and I do). They are simply veggies with some sunflower seeds. I believe they are Don Lee Farms.

    Delish, probably gonna have them for dinner tonight.

    Veggie Patties

    MM I love Houston’s veggie burgers. I’ve been to the Miami one. Really good.

    New grain – buckwheat something?

  22. September 11, 2009 10:22 am

    I was super excited to find the Sunshine burgers at our local PCC (hello from Hippie Country – lol). I LOVED them and was so glad that they don’t try to be meat AND don’t contain soy.

    My homemade black bean burgers are really easy and good too if you’re in the mood for something that sorta tastes like Mexican food.I just search BBB and picked the easiest recipe.

    If you think pulling a “Heather” is bad, remember the scene from When Harry Met Sally? Well, a little Google search revealed that “Sally’s specific food order requests were based on writer Nora Ephron’s own way of ordering food.” So there you go.

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    My favourite – veggie burger and sweet potatoes fries at Milestones. (Although I think Milestones is only in Canada???)

    I have to admit the Amy’s California style veggie burgers are absolutely delicious, and they are soy free. The other burgers they sell have soy in them however. You should try the california style ones! I love the deep rich flavor from the mushrooms and I absolutely hate mushrooms.

  25. September 11, 2009 10:44 am

    I love veggie burgers! You made me want one!

  26. September 11, 2009 10:45 am

    Holy yum homemade Sunshine burgers!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Did you try millet?? Cant’ wait to find out!!

  27. September 11, 2009 10:46 am

    I love all veggie burgers – they’re just soo good. I too eat meat, but opt for the vegetarian option all the time just because I like the flavor. We don’t have houstons, but my mom eats there all the time so I’ll have to tell her to check it out.

    thanks for sharing that recipe – those sound amazing!

    Pulled a “Heather”…that’s awesome. The guys here at my office always say they “pulled a Jerzyk” when they order salad at a restaurant.

    That recipe is just what I needed. Thank you! Take a peek at the blog this upcoming week and you’ll see what I’m referring to.

    My guess on the grain is…(insert Jeopardy music)…teff.

  29. September 11, 2009 10:56 am

    I’ve heard great things about Houston’s veggie burger here in Boston. The last time I was there I ordered one but they were all out. And it’s not even listed on the menu!!

  30. September 11, 2009 10:59 am

    That salad/veggie burger combo looks really good!
    I need to learn to ask for what I want at restaurants, then Iwouldn’t be afraid to go out to eat!

  31. September 11, 2009 11:07 am

    Oh, now I have to try the Sunshine burger next week ๐Ÿ˜€

    The quinoa burgers I made last week were AMAZING. Just a little delicate when it came to flipping. Totally worth it though. My all time favorite veggie burgers are at The Hobbit Cafe in Houston, TX. When I visit, I eat one and pretend they have no grains in them ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hobbit Cafe in case you are interested

  32. September 11, 2009 11:08 am

    i love veggie burgers at vegetarian restaurants but never order them in places that i believe them to be frozen patties from brands like Boca. This one sports bar by my house has a black bean burger. WHen I asked how they made it, the server said it was Morningstar…um I paid 8 dollars for something I could have made at home? grr.

    OMG I got my Jay Robb powder yesterday! I cant wait to use it!! thanks again!


  33. September 11, 2009 11:08 am

    New grain….maybe Teff or Buckwheat, both of those are GF. Not sure if you are a diehard GF’er or not.

    Nut n seed burgers…well most of them are made with beans and my GI tract and beans don’t mesh well ๐Ÿ™‚ Or maybe too well. Sorry, TMI. So I havent been making many burgers but I love that not one bean was used in your recipe and that this may indeed work. I also LOVE carrots and brightly colored random flecks that POP when I see the burger on the plate (I am a really visual eater, it has to look pretty LOL).

    Thanks Heather for a keeper…I will try this when the hot diggity weather cools off a bit and it’s more fall-like. “Burger” season, ya know.

    p.s. great to chat w/ you yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚

    I will try this. Dreena Burton also has some nice ones in her books and I think it is a great idea to stock up the freezer with them just as the bocas or the morningstar ones ๐Ÿ™‚ Only better for you, much better ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

  37. September 11, 2009 11:59 am

    The Houston’s veggie burger with a side of couscous is legend! I didn’t realize that they had Houston’s outside, well, Houston…but I remember getting that recommendation from a fellow veggie over 10 years ago. It’s like looking up at the night sky and realizing we’re all looking at the same moon. OK, not really. But it’s a damn good veggie burger.

  38. September 11, 2009 12:22 pm

    That veggie burger looks awesome! I hate when I go out to eat and find out that the restaurant uses Boca burgers. Restaurants are supposed to cook real food, not pull a disc out of the freezer.

    Hope you have a good weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. September 11, 2009 12:52 pm

    My guess is Buckwheat Flakes and that’s only because I bought some for the first time not too long ago. I haven’t tried them yet though. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a restaurant that served any veggie burger other than Gardenburger of Boca.

  40. September 11, 2009 2:04 pm

    I, too, wish Costco would carry Sunshine Burgers. Perhaps we should start a campaign? ๐Ÿ™‚ I prefer the falafel ones, have not tried the original and didn’t care for the herb ones.

    Like another reader said, I wouldn’t order a veggie burger out, unless I knew it was homemade.

  41. September 11, 2009 2:12 pm

    I was going to say millet but since it was for breakfast…amaranth?

  42. September 11, 2009 2:19 pm

    Boca is gross…your recipe sounds much better! There is a Houston’s near my parents house, but I’ve never tried the veggie burger! I’m actually a fan of their ahi tuna salad, but I get mine with the tuna….I love love love seared tuna! Maybe next time I should “pull a Heather” and order their veggie burger on top instead ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I want to try that cashew white sauce! No veggie burger I’ve ever had has looked as tempting as the one on your plate! Funny you’d post about this now. I had a Gardenburger last night and said to myself “There’s got to be a better veggie burger out there” because something in them just really puts me off. I’m having to force down the last 2 (3 before last night) in the box. But I do love veggie burgers! I haven’t had a real hamburger in probably 4 years.

    ive just discovered how much i love ginger. i should start incorporating it into more dishes

  48. September 11, 2009 3:29 pm

    I’m another vote for Amy’s California, as I don’t like the soy versions either. If it’s a mainstream restaurant, it usually disappoints, but there’s nothing like a real, thick homemade veggie burger bursting with real veggies on great bread from a place that gets it and does it well.

    No Sunshine Burgers here…boo. (No TJs or WF. Double boo.)

  49. September 11, 2009 3:43 pm

    Not a big fan of the Boca burgers. I do like the vegan Gardenburgers. Also, there’s a local place here in Ft. Worth, TX called Old Neighborhood Grill that has the best black bean burger (served on a whole grain bun!). I’m curious about the Sunshine Burger–I’ve never seen those around here.

  50. September 11, 2009 3:54 pm

    Great recipes! The Complete Vegan Kitchen has one for broccoli almond veggie burgers that you’d prolly love.

    btw. I started Yoga this week. I love it. It’s seriously the greatest thing ever. I can see why you are so thin & strong! It’s very hard, and so far, I suck at it, but it’s too much fun to stop.

    I do have a Houston’s near me! They’re ceasar salad is out of control good. They use an eggless dressing with an olive oil base and its freaking fantastic! I will have to try the veggie burger next time…maybe atop the salad ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow horrible typp…*their

  56. September 11, 2009 5:12 pm

    Boca burgers are just ‘ok.’ I’d rather make my own. I like to use garbanzo beans in mine. I’ve seen the Sunshine burgers but those are a little out of my budget, espec. since you get only like 4. Your cashew white sauce sounds yummy.

    I bet you tried amaranth. It’s yummy for breakfast and I don’t know that I’ve seen it on your blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow. Those sound INCREDIBLE. I’ve already bookmarked the recipe. Can’t wait to try, most especially with the cashew sauce! Veggie burgers have MILES on meat loaded burgers. I just love em.

    OMG HEAB, seriously one of my major pet peeves is restaurants that put veggie burgers on the menu and then just heat up a premade frozen one. No, if I wanted that, I would buy the whole box for less than the price I’d pay for them to make it (mediocre-ly) for me. If I’m getting a veggie burger at a restaurant, they better have ground and molded that sh!t by hand. And the only thing that should un-veganize it is the blood, sweat and tears that went into getting it on my plate.

    There is nothing more depressing than a lukewarm Boca burger when the rest of your dining companions are chowing down on something that looks much more appetizing (especially since you have to deal with their comments the rest of the night)

  71. September 12, 2009 7:32 am

    I am actually a huge fan of Boca patties ๐Ÿ™‚ But I have seen the Sunshine burgers recently, and debated on buyin em’ to try, but I may have to opt for your recipe instead–it sounds great!

  72. September 12, 2009 7:54 am

    I’m with you on keeping my fingers crossed that Costco starts carrying more brands of veggie burgers! We should start a petition.

  73. September 12, 2009 8:20 am

    Any veggie burger that is soy free (and free of any of it’s derivative parts) is a-okay in my world. Can’t wait to try this one.

    That looks like a great veggie burger recipe! It’s kind of funny you posted that cashew sauce recipe, because yesterday I tried making nut cheese in my vitamix and it’s definitely more of a liquid dressing. If I make the veggie burgers maybe I’ll drizzle that over the burger. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like Sunshine burgers too, but a friend of mine told me that Costco is carrying Dr. Praeger’s veggie burgers now and they’re supposedly very good and have only a few ingredients. I haven’t bought any yet, but she said they’re not expensive and they’re vegan. Maybe that’s an option?

  78. September 13, 2009 2:57 pm

    I love how you say you “pulled a Heather”.. my own family doesn’t give a care if I do that, but my husband and his family always roll their eyes when I ask the waiter 20 questions and basically end up ordering something totally different than what’s on the menu! But I say, as long as you are polite about it, it’s ok ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dr. Praegerโ€™s are very very good and not too expensive – I get them at Trader Joe’s. I have the Tex Mex veggie burgers in my freezer right now. They do have some soy flour in them, though.

    Even though they’re not veggie, I have to give a shout out to Trader Joe’s Chicken Chile Lime burgers – minimal ingredient list, and so delicious! Even hubby will eat one without complaining that it’s not beef!

    I’ve also heard that Pied Piper Eatery in East Nashville has a great homemade veggie burger (made with beets I think) but I haven’t made it there yet. It’s sort of off the beaten path tucked back into a neighborhood near Riverside Village. It’s in my ‘hood, though, so I really have no excuse!

    I made my own veggie burgers once using a tri-bean mix and they were definitely my favorite!

    I have also had the Sunshine falafel burgers, yum. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Unfortunately, I do still sometimes rely on the Boca and Morningstar brands but I am getting tired of their products with super long ingredients lists so I’m limiting those.

    This is why I don’t eat at Buffalo Wild Wings anymore, their veggie burger is just a Gardenburger patty…I could make that at home!

    Mandiee, I think you will love the Sunburger patties. In fact, I should make some of my own soon! It’s been a while since I’ve made them, but I believe the recipe yields about 12 to 15 burgers. So good! Enjoy. ๐Ÿ™‚
