Homemade veggie burgers are tasty but notoriously fragile. That’s why most of our healthy plant-based burger recipes are best baked in the oven. And why we set out to make one that will stand up to summer BBQ season without turning on the oven. Our Easy Homemade Grillable Veggie Burger recipe holds up on the grill as good as any store-bought plant-based patty—without sacrificing nutrition or flavour.
The secret? Aquafaba. Yes, the liquid that’s usually drained and rinsed from a can of chickpeas! It takes the place of eggs to hold a handful of wholesome plant-based ingredients together so you can slap these patties on the barbecue and serve a healthy burger your family will love.
This easy grillable veggie burger is just as nutritious as it is tasty, thanks to the inclusion of brown rice, canned chickpeas, and sprouted breadcrumbs—made from the lonely last slices and heels hanging out in your pantry or freezer. These ingredients mean these plant-based patties are packed with the goodness of whole grains and plant-based protein—so you can feel energized and satisfied.
This recipe is perfect for summers by the barbecue—so you can enjoy the rich, smoky flavour that comes with cooking over a grill outside in nice weather! Fresh air and a fresh veggie burger truly hits the spot! The ingredients for this recipe are healthy and easy to find—nearly all of them can be sourced from pantry staples or leftovers.
Sandwiched in a sprouted bun, this healthy veggie burger is chock full of fibre too. And that means this simple plant-based meal will keep you and your family fuelled and ready to make the most of long, warm, mid-summer evenings together.
