The BEST Veggie Burger. Simple, gluten-free vegan burgers that are actually grill-able. Twelve ingredients, tender, hearty, flavorful, delicious.


  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 3/4 cup almond flour/meal
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 2 TBS liquid aminos
  • 1 tsp paprika

  1. In a small bowl, combine flax and water. Mix. Set aside.
  2. Pour prepared black beans into a medium size mixing bowl. Use a potato masher or the
  3. back of fork to smash beans. Leave some whole for texture. Add carrots, garlic, onion,
  4. almond flour, bread crumbs, liquid aminos, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, salt and
  5. pepper. Use hands to mix ingredients and then form 6 patties. Bake patties for 15
  6. minutes, flip and cook an additional 15 minutes.
  7. Serve with a whole wheat bun, pita bread or as a wrap. I like to garnish with guacamole, tomatoes and lettuce.
