Even meat lovers will delight in these delish, plant-powered kale burger patties. Our Vegan Garlicky Kale Burger brings together rich nutrition and fresh flavours—and you can make it with pantry (and freezer) staples all year long. These kale burger patties are baked with protein-packed quinoa and garlicky kale that’s bound together with tangy, creamy hummus and seasonings.

Use up leftover cooked quinoa from last night’s dinner and that last scoop of hummus. Swap in frozen kale if fresh is out of season or you don’t have any in the house. Mix, bake, then stack it with your favourite burger toppings on a Silver Hills Sprouted Whole Grain Burger Bun (plain or with sesame seeds). The result? A stellar burger that beats anything you’ll find in the frozen food aisle or a better burger joint. Fast, easy, and stuffed with nutrient dense whole food ingredients, you and your family will love our Vegan Garlicky Kale Burgers on summer long weekends or weeknights at home, no matter what’s on the agenda.

What condiments, sauces, and crunchy veggies would you top these with? Share photos of your version—and reviews!—of our Vegan Garlicky Kale Burger on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
