Beet and Brown Rice Burgers

Beet and Brown Rice Burgers

In these tasty beet and brown rice burgers, red wine vinegar is the secret ingredient, bringing a slightly floral and acidic note to the burger. Searing this delicate burger on high heat at the beginning of the cooking process is important; the crust that forms is what helps the burger keep its shape.

Quinoa and Red Lentil Burgers

Quinoa and red lentil burger

Quinoa and red lentils cook up in the same amount of time, right in the same saucepan, making these nourishing veggie burgers super convenient to make. You can make the whole batch, and freeze half of them for later use once baked and cooled. While these bake, consider roasting some potato wedges or other vegetables at the same time. Add a green salad one of our easy slaws for a great meal. Recipe adapted from Plant Power by Nava Atlas. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→

Smoky Sunflower Bean Burgers or Sliders

Vegan bean burgers or sliders

An easy bean burger with a little crunch from sunflower seeds and a subtle smoky flavor, these work well with pink, pinto, or red beans. Make some potato oven fries or sweet potato oven fries at the same time, and serve with your favorite condiments in pita bread or on whole grain buns.  more→

Quinoa and Wild Rice Burgers

Quinoa and Wild Rice Vegan Burger

Quinoa and wild rice make a tasty team in these vegan burgers. Serve on their own with a sauce or on whole-grain buns; they’re good in pita breads with leafy greens and/or sprouts as well. Since these two grains have very different cook times, it may be best to have the quinoa cooked and ready ahead of time. Having the wild rice cooked ahead of time as well will make preparing these a breeze. more→

Sriracha Tempeh Sliders with Ranch Dressing

Tempeh Sliders from The Lusty Vegan

Tempeh is one obliviously of my favorite proteins to work with, and I’ve found it makes the best little sliders. These are great are because you get about 4 per standard package of tempeh. Since living in LA, these lil’ guys have become a staple in my catering arsenal. Here is a hint: you can replace the sriracha with BBQ sauce if it’s too hot you!

Vegan Beet Burgers

Vegan beet burgers

Burgers based on beets are all the rage in the vegan world. The red color is absolutely gorgeous! Serve as you would any other kind of burger — on buns or in pita bread, with your favorite fixings. They’re so flavorful, though, that I like to serve them on their own. If anything, I’d add a dollop of a quick vegan tartar sauce and serve these on their own with salad.

Pinto Bean and Quinoa Sloppy Joes

Quinoa and Bean Sloppy Joes

Seriously—who needs fake meat when you can make hearty, beautifully textured dishes using grains and beans? This serves up deliciously on rolls, but if you’re not a bread person, you can serve the mixture in a lettuce-leaf cup or atop a corn tortilla. Serve with baked potatoes or sweet potatoes and any slaw-style salad. Fresh corn on the cob when in season is a great addition as well. Recipe from Plant Power: Transform Your Kitchen, Plate, and Life with More Than 150 Fresh and Flavorful Vegan Recipes by Nava Atlas. ©2014, published by HarperOne, reprinted by permission.
