These BBQ Veggie Burgers are just what you need at your next barbecue! Filled with flavor and nutrients — these burgers will please everyone. The patties are firm enough to throw on the grill and don’t get mushy when eating.
A closer look at what’s inside:
Black beans are packed with nutrients. They are a good source of protein, fiber, folate, magnesium, manganese, magnesium, and more. Using black beans creates a patty that looks similar to a traditional hamburger and helps to hold everything together.
Quinoa is a complete protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. It is also naturally gluten-free, making it a great grain to incorporate in your diet.
I love sweet potato! It is a great source of vitamin A which works to protect your eyes, skin, bones, and more. It is also high in fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and potassium.
Made with flaxseed meal and water, flax eggs a vegan substitute for eggs and work well in most recipes. Flaxseeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and lignans, which are thought to be beneficial in preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Walnuts are not only a good source of protein, they also contain omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants that are beneficial for heart health and fighting oxidative damage in the body.
To help keep things from getting too mushy, oats work to absorb excess moisture. They are also incredibly nutritious. One cup of rolled oats contains 10 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, and 10% of your daily-recommended iron.
Also known as scallions, green onions offer a mild onion flavor. They are a particularly good source of vitamin K which is known to benefit bone and heart health.
A staple in Korean cooking, this tasty BBQ sauce is the perfect combo of sweet and savory, with a touch of ginger! It works great as a marinade to make authentic Korean BBQ and as an addition to your favorite stir fry sauce. I used Kalbi Sauce from Lucky Foods in this recipe. It is vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO.
Kimchi Hot Sauce
Add a little heat to the patty with this delicious Kimchi Hot Sauce from Lucky Foods — sweet and spicy with kimchi flavor. This award winning sauce can be used as a marinade, dip, or topping on your favorite dishes!
Don’t forget to flavor your patties with spices! I included cumin, oregano, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in these burgers for loads of flavor. Feel free to add your favorite flavors and experiment with spices.
