Red Bean Burgers

Red Bean Burgers PinThis Red Bean Burgers recipe is very flavorful and satisfying. It’s a delicious and nutritious vegan burger that’s super quick and easy to make. Perfect for a weeknight meal when you’re short on time but long on hunger.

The burger patties are very moist so they won’t do well on the grill, but they great on an electric griddle if you have one. We usually just bake them, though. They’re very flavorful as is, but you can sprinkle the patties with a little garlic salt and black pepper before you cook them for even more flavor.

We like high quality, whole grain buns, but you can use your favorite hamburger buns. Top them with some greens, a slice of tomato and a little spicy mustard or ketchup and you’ve got one delicious vegan burger!

BBQ Jackfruit

BBQ Jackfruit PinThis BBQ Jackfruit is meaty, savory and delicious. It’s a great substitute for pulled pork. If you serve it to your non-vegan friends with our Vegan BBQ Sauce, they won’t know it’s vegan!

Growing up in the Kansas City area gave me a special appreciation for BBQ. There’s nothing quite like KC BBQ so I was very happy when Amelia came up with this amazing BBQ Jackfruit recipe.

The texture of young jackfruit is almost identical to pulled pork. It doesn’t have much flavor of its own so when you cook it with a flavorful BBQ Sauce, it’s pretty much just like a pulled pork BBQ sandwich. We used Organic Young Jackfruit from Native Forest.

Vegan Sloppy Joes

Vegan Sloppy Joes PinThese Vegan Sloppy Joes are loaded with 16g protein thanks to the lentils, and they taste just like the Sloppy Joes I had as a kid. To be honest, though, I didn’t like sloppy joes as a kid. But loved them as an adult.

You could make these with Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles. That would be delicious, but we prefer to stick to whole-foods whenever possible and the lentils are perfect for this recipe.

We ate ours the old fashioned way: on a bun. But they would taste great over pasta, Spaghetti Squash and especially over some Boiled Potatoes.

As a side dish, some Vegan French Fries and Green Beans would be very tasty!

Beet Burger w/ Black Beans & Quinoa

Beet BurgerThis Beet Burger w/ Black Beans & Quinoa is a colorful, healthy and delicious alternative to traditional veggie burgers. The beets, black beans and quinoa provide 12 grams of fiber, 18 grams of protein and 39% RDV iron.

Beets are very versatile and high in iron. You don’t need to cook them before preparing this recipe. Just grate them in your food processor and they’ll cook up in the oven.

Quinoa is a high protein grain that makes a great binding agent. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly before cooking to remove the saponin coating that gives quinoa a bitter taste.

We opted to bake the burgers in the oven since they’re pretty delicate and come apart easily. Baking them also cuts out the oil needed to fry them in the pan. But if you prefer to fry your beet burger, add a little oil to a large skillet and cook them for a few minutes on each side until crispy.

Pairs well with Oven Roasted Red Potatoes or Vegan Green Beans with Bacon Flavor.
