best of the best: veggie burger roundup


I no longer have a reason to fuss about delicious-looking but disappointing-tasting veggie burgers on Pinterest. I contacted one of my favorite local restaurants and got my hands on the recipe for the Carolina Brewery Veggie Burger. They were more than happy to share the recipe with us (!!!) so it’s burger #1 today. I also collected your favorite recipes through tweets, comments, emails and one reader even sent a couple of recipes through snail mail. How amazing!


Below you’ll find the best of the best veggie burger recipes – links to those that are available online and printable versions for those that are not. I hope you enjoy them! I know I cant wait to start eating my way down the list.

This was truly a collaborative effort – thanks for all of you who shared your favorites and a HUGE thanks to Carolina Brewery for sharing their oh-so-delicious recipe with us today!

P.S. Thought you might enjoy this one. I emailed Cafe Karibo, home of my other favorite veggie burger, for their recipe and this is what I got:

Elle, Unfortunately, I don’t have the veggie burger recipe exactly.  It has a TON of ingredients and is very time consuming to make.  I can tell you it does have sautéed broccoli stems, Portobello mushroom stems, yellow onions, carrots, celery and garlic.  That is mixed with couscous, bulgur wheat, oatmeal, cooked rice and spices.  The binding agent is a blend of chickpeas, tofu, tomato paste and mustard.  Once the patties are formed they are seared and baked to order.  Quite a production but that result is a fabulous veggie burger unlike any other.  Enjoy!

I don’t think I’d touch this one with a 10-foot wooden spoon, but if you feel like sautéing some broccoli and mushroom stems to experiment, I’d love to hear how it goes! It’s probably easiest just to plan a trip to Amelia Island though. It’s worth the visit, I promise!
