I’m so excited to deliver a new burger recipe. Lately I have a big craving for burgers and I’m so sharing this new Veggie Burger recipe with all of you to enjoy. I know you’ll be thrilled and excited judging from how much you liked my other vegan and gluten-free burgers like my Vegan Buffalo Burger, Vegan Lentil Burger and Black Bean Burger. Contentedness Cooking stands for easy vegan recipes with lots of fun and the Veggie Burger with Cauliflower is no exception!
This easy recipe contains only 3 ingredients for the patty and just two ingredients for the sauce – the whole recipe only has 5 ingredients (plus of course optional toppings for your choice). I’ll tell you what I think make an awesome burger recipe: apart from getting really good, fresh burger buns, you really, really need a good combination of patties and sauce. Flavors have to mix and enhance each other. All of my burger recipes therefore come as a package and so does this Veggie Burger with Cauliflower. I created a super delicious tahini sauce with a touch of maple syrup. I also use a splash of the sauce for the patty to add some flavor. This means you can of course use your own sauce but the result may be different.
You probably know my other burger recipes which I mentioned before and know that those are easy to make, delicious, timesaving, full of flavor, and satisfying. I love to hear all your feedback guys. Feedback that totally made my day like what Jimmy said about my Vegan Lentil Burger: “Dude….these burgers are amazing. Thanks for the recipe. Will probably be making a batch every week.”.
This time we make the patties from cauliflower and lentils as the main ingredients. We add so much flavor by roasting the cauliflower for around 20 minutes. The cauliflower adds a lovely crunch the lentils adds an earthy flavor to the Veggie Burger patties. After the cauliflower has been roasted, place lentils, cauliflower, gf breadcrumbs, and optional 1 Tbs of the tahini sauce in a blender or food processor. Process until you have a chunky consistency, not too smooth or else the mix will end up too soft and it’ll be difficult to make nice patties.
You can choose if you want to fry or bake the patties. In the oven it will take around 20 minutes, in the pan it’s of course much faster. Assemble the Veggie Burger with Cauliflower on a fresh bun with your favorite toppings, the tahini sauce and enjoy.
I guarantee that with this easy veggie burger recipe you will on your way to burger heaven!
