Please post your amazing sounding recipe for the veggie burger patties here, and as we each try it out, we'll respond with our reviews!!

I would love to have the recipes for everything else that was submitted as well...please post them in seperate threads for the sake of organization and ease of finding.

I will start a new thread for nominations for recipes to try out in the month of July.
Thanks for participating, everyone, and as always, thanks to Herself for coming up with the idea!

OK Muzicfan, where's the recipe? I'm buying groceries this week and I'd like to pick up any unusual (for me) ingredients so I can try out the patties. Thanks a bunch.

Okay. I made them and they tasted very good. Everyone enjoyed it. We had sweet potato oven fries and corn on the cob with this meal. The problem was that the burgers did not stay together in patties. I added a few extra things and somewhere along the line the proportions must have gotten messed up because the whole thing ended up in this loose mess...but it did taste really good and we ate it all!

i posted the poll, and i used the descriptions people wrote in their submissions (see the recipe club: part two thread). this is what muzicfan wrote:

I made homemade veggie burgers consisting of mushrooms, spinach, carrot and onion. Tofu and wheat bread crumbs as a binder. Made a flavor of soy sauce, honey, and dijon mustard. It was better than anything I could have bought in my store freezer.
i'm sure you could add mushrooms in, anyway. this looks like one of those recipes where you could totally play around with the kinds of veggies you use to get different flavour and textures every time you make it. yum!

sorry my mistake.. the original recipe doesnt have mushroom, but I did try it the other day.


as far as sticking together, I probably put a lil more breadcrumbs that recipe states, and I also let it cool well. Let me know if you try other things that work better. Less bread for me the better.

Congratulations Muzicfan!

I missed out on the voting, but would've voted for your recipe!
I agree about 'the less bread, the better' -- I wonder if ground flax seeds or some mashed avocado could do the job instead...

I wonder if these could be better cooked on the grill or in the oven (less handling of the patties)...

Can't wait to try this!

June 29th and I finally got around to making the recipe!! Luckily I had a print-out of the ingredients in my purse when it hit me that the month was almost over ...


First things first: they were definitely delicious!

I went ahead and added two finely diced baby portabellas to the mix. I served them on toasted buns with vegan mayo, and slices of avocado on the side.

They didn't hold together very well at all -- I did use extra bread crumbs but maybe I didn't let the mix cool long enough. However they were still a hit -- we just called them "veg sloppy joes!"

I'm very proud of myself for actually cooking and eating something with tofu!
Actually I thought the mixture was very tasty even prior to being fried into patties; it would make a nice side dish and I think even omnis would like it.

Are we doing recipe club again in July? Hope so!!!!!
