Mixed with a lot of nutritious grains, veggies, and spices, this veggie patty recipe is great for veggie burgers. It’s also fantastic as a vegan veggie crumble (in place of ground meat) for burritos, wraps, and food pies! I used it for gyoza dumplings the other day, adding some garlic and Japanese “nira” (garlic chives), and it was so good!

Adapted from Yukitchen

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup dry wild rice
  • ⅓ cup dry brown rice
  • ⅓ cup dry quinoa
  • 3 cups cooked or canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the wild rice, brown rice, quinoa, and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 35 to 40 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, thoroughly mash the beans. Add the chopped onion, mushrooms, and garlic. Mix well.
  3. When grains are done, add them to the mashed beans mixture along with the oats, soy sauce, cumin, black pepper, cayenne, coriander, and salt. Mash again.
  4. Use your hands to mix the veggie "meat" and shape it into 6 to 8 patties. If the mixture is too wet and doesn’t stick together, add more oats little by little until the mixture sticks together.
  5. Grill the patties over medium-high heat until they turns a little bit brown and crunchy outside. Note: You can wrap any unused portion and store it in the fridge for 5 to 6 days.

I am brand new to FOK, although not to veggie-burgers, in general. These burgers are delicious and as the recipe title says: EASY. All of the grains used provide complex flavor and texture often lacking in other burger recipes. I modified the spice amounts to suit — less cumin and cayenne and more soy sauce for umami, salt and moisture. I used quick-cooking oats.

I ate my burger between romaine leaves with fried onions, mustard and dill pickles. Delicious.

It mentions adding the vegetables but, there are none listed? Also, there isnt enough liquid for the grains to adsorb and expand.

Hi Shelly, thanks for pointing this out. We’ve edited the recipe for clarity and revised the measurements on water (for the grains) and spices. More clarity, more liquid, a little less spice. –Liz Turner, FOK editor in chief

Shelly: I think they are referring to the onion and mushrooms when they say “vegetables”.

Agree with the extra water – more like 3 cups. The wild rice requires a much longer cooking time, the other grains were mushy and the wild rice was still undercooked. I sautéd the veggies.
Check the seasonings to your preference: 1 tsp of black pepper and 1 tsp of red pepper – really?!

Shouldn’t it be 2 cups of water to 1 cup of grains?

Yes, these burgers can be frozen. They freeze well.

For burgers that are more moist (I hear you!), increase the mushrooms a bit and maybe decrease the oats (which soak up moisture).

I strongly recommend that you fry the mushrooms in tamari or Braggs before tossing them in the mix. It amps the umami and salt.

Any kind of oats will work (quick, instant, rolled) — except whole.

You may want to add some bell pepper to the vegetables. If you like heat, add half a serrano pepper or a pinch of red flakes. Be imaginative! Cooking is fun.

I always find veggie burgers to be dry. Any tips for making them more moist?

This looks good. I’m going to try it. What kind of oats should I use? Instant rolled oats?
