Happy Friday friends!!
Hope you’re doing well today! It’s freezing here. But nothing like bundling up and having a warm burger to keep me warm.
When you think of veggie burgers, what comes to mind? Black beans? Sweet potato? Soy based? Not good? Well, friends we have the ultimate veggie burger that is free of all those things and tastes AMAZING! Yes, amazing! Promise.
Nothing like a good veggie burger to get you through Friday. We mean, you’ve got this yummy meal to look forward to! And most of these ingredients you might already have at home.
Grain-free, egg-free, soy-free, legume-free plantain veggie burger with plantain bread buns topped with tahini basil pepper sauce.
A plantain veggie seed burger… as it contains two of our favorites: hemp seeds and sunflower seeds.
Hemp seeds are a great protein source, contains omega-3 fats, all 20 amino acids and a rich source of phytonutrients. We adore hemp seeds and hemp protein powder. We always have some in our fridge.
Sunflower seeds are good source of selenium and contain magnesium, copper and Vitamin E. Another seed that we adore! Perfect for making savory dishes like this burger!
And our plantain bread makes the perfect burger bun for these burgers.
To make them as buns, we just cooked them in a muffin pan to make more individual buns that we sliced in half. Excellent!
It’s been a really long time since we’ve made a veggie vegan burger and we are sure glad we decided to make a new recipe.
This is now our FAVORITE veggie burger!
And we have this feeling that it will soon be yours too.
A few things that we love about this veggie burger recipe is that it contains no legumes, no soy and no nuts.
Again, we are not necessarily saying veggie burgers made from those are bad. We just prefer not to use them. Just our preference.
We actually thought of this plantain burger before Christmas. And just finally got around to creating it; guess better late than never, right?
We knew we wanted to create a savory recipe using plantains.
And a burger came to mind. Again we are glad it did!
We also love a good veggie burger with some texture. So we did not pulse our hemp seeds and sunflower seeds completely.
And the tahini pepper sauce on top… need we say more?
It really completes this whole veggie burger experience. A touch of basil and sweetness. YUM!
Everything just blends so well together making it the ultimate veggie burger.
Seriously so good. A warm, sturdy, delicious veggie burger.
And made from just 7 simple ingredients. One spectacular veggie burger if we do say so ourselves!! We are pretty darn proud of how well it turned out. Definitely going to be a recipe we make often.
Even Gary, not so thrilled about veggie burgers, loves these burgers. He took a bite and said wow those are really good 😉
Let’s get ready to eat some veggie burgers!
