4. Greek Burger
The flavors of these Greek Burgers blend seamlessly together like they’re straight out of a dream. The patties are made from high-protein ingredients like chickpeas and quinoa, and flavorful Kalamata olives, fresh dill, parsley, and green onions. Finally, they’re topped with a cucumber tofu feta dressing so good, you’ll want to save this recipe and use it to top all your future salads.

It’s savory, filling, and zesty. Serve this in burger form with all of your favorite fixings or as a hearty salad topper.
6. Sticky Peanut Orange Rice Burgers
This Sticky Peanut Orange Rice Burger is the wonderful result of food fusion. It combines some of the most delicious flavors of Asian cuisine – orange, peanut butter, soy sauce, Sriracha — and presents it in one of America’s most beloved forms: a burger. It’s got sweet citrusy notes, but is still savory thanks to the soy sauce and peanut butter, and it has just the right amount of bite from Sriracha.
7. Rou Jia Mo Chinese Burger
Rou jia mo is often referred to as a Chinese Burger, even though it’s more of a street food kind of sandwich. While normally made with meat, in this recipe, tofu is marinated in vegetable broth and a medley of spices then topped with julienned carrots, cucumber, and bell pepper, and then stuffed into a fluffy “mo” bread. Hearty and flavorful!
8. BBQ Portobello Pretzel Sliders
Juicy, grilled Portobello mushrooms on toasted pretzel slider buns with avocado, barbecue sauce, caramelized onions, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes is the magic that is these BBQ Portobello Pretzel Sliders. Let’s not forget melty vegan cheese, either. They’re light, flavorful, and slightly spicy — all at the same time. Can’t take the heat? Just leave out the spicy red pepper flakes.
9. Spicy Sweet Potato and Chickpea Burger
These Spicy Sweet Potato and Chickpea Burgers are packed with flavor from carefully selected spices such as cumin, paprika, and turmeric. Adjust spiciness to taste and create an awesome dining experience by topping with your choice of salad, tomato, onion, and avocado. Need another reason to try? These burgers freeze really well, so be sure to make a double batch to enjoy later on.
10. Smoky Portobello Black Bean Burger
This Smoky Portobello Black Bean Burger has two meaty patties, one delicious sauce, and plenty of fixings. Smoky black bean patty is paired with juicy, marinated Portobello mushrooms caps, caramelized onions, and roasted garlic aioli. You get a burst of savory flavor in each bite!
11. Crispy Seitan Burgers
Crispy, tender, and juicy, these Seitan Burgers are the ultimate crowd-pleasing burger for a barbecue. They’re made from seitan and beans, so they’re big on protein and all the seasoning gives it that “meaty” taste. Serve these with all the fixings of a traditional burger — lettuce, sliced tomato and onion, ketchup, and a sesame seed bun for the fast food experience without having to take a trip to the drive-thru.
12. Almost Raw Walnut Burgers
These Almost Raw Walnut Burgers are also awesome on rainy summer days, because instead of throwing them on the grill, you slow-cook them in the oven. Made from walnuts, mushrooms, carrots, and savory sun-dried tomatoes, these burgers are made completely from whole foods. If you don’t follow a raw diet, serve them on a bun like you would with any burger otherwise, or throw one on top of a big salad and enjoy.
13. Mixed Bean and Bell Pepper Burger
These tasty Mixed Bean and Bell Pepper Burgers are filled with goodness — three different types of beans, lots of vegetables, and heart-healthy oats. These are best served with crispy fries and all the trimmings. They also freeze beautifully, so you can double the recipe and defrost some for easy, yet hearty dinners later in the week.
14. Curried Pumpkin and Chickpea Burger
When it comes to burgers, it’s all about the spice. Made from yellow pumpkin, earthy chickpeas and a mixture of warming spices, these Curried Pumpkin and Chickpea Burgers are the perfect combo for your barbecue, a game night dinner, or just for that cozy get-together with your friends.
