The Ultimate Veggie Burger

2 servings

After all these years, I finally managed to make the perfect veggie burger. All those failed attempts, all those dry patties - no more!

These come out very moist and soft, because that's how I like them - if you'd prefer a more firm patty, feel free to add a bit more beans, or maybe add some oats at the end when you're shaping them.

I used some ingredients that you might not have in the kitchen at all times - check out the notes section for substitute suggestions.

  • 50g sweet potato, cooked
  • 80g canned black beans, drained
  • 25g rice, cooked
  • 10g quinoa, cooked*
  • 10g flax seeds, cooked
  • one carrot, grated
  • seasoning to taste - salt, pepper, smoked paprika, oregano


Blend the sweet potato, beans, rice, quinoa, and flax seeds until smooth
Add grated carrot and seasoning, mix well
Form a patty shape and fry in a bit of veggie oil on medium heat until nicely browned
Serve however you like - here with my all time favourite pretzel bread, spinach, tomatoes, olives, feta cheese (skip if vegan), and homemade tzatziki (mix a cup of greek or vegan yoghurt with 1/2 grated cucumber, season with salt, pepper, and chilli)


  • I realise not everyone will have quinoa or flax seeds at home, it should work just as fine if you simply add 45g rice instead, or maybe substitute flax seeds with chia seeds...or other seeds, and quinoa with bulgur...or other grain. You get the idea, the world's your oyster
