Thread: Veggie Burgers

    Default Veggie Burgers

    I have tried various kinds of veggie burgers, Boca Burgers, and Morningstar
    Farms (I think). There are 2 basic problems. The first is that they are
    way too dry. I don't really expect them to have the same "mouth feel" as
    meat, but even so they are still too dry.

    Second, the manufacturers are seeming to try to make them taste "like meat."
    First, they are not succeeding very well. Second, veggie burgers are a
    different product, and I think it is a mistake to make them taste "like
    meat."

    Home made veggie burgers, however, are a different matter. Several years
    ago, I ran across an article that had 3 recipes for veggie burgers. One was
    rice based, one was corn based, and the third was bean based (something like
    pinto beans, I think).

    The one that was best prepared like a regular hamburger was the rice based
    one. The best overall was the corn based one, but the way I fixed it was to
    put it on a plate, then put some sour cream and salsa on it. I also tried
    one of the corn veggie burgers on a bun with ketchup, mayo, and mustard,
    like a "regular hamburger."

    Currently, I like the following recipe:
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._30859,00.html.
    Like I said, I don't think it tastes "like meat," but I think it is pretty
    good prepared in the same way as a "regular hamburger," and eaten with a
    claussen pickle and a nice glass of milk.

    I also tried the following recipe:
    http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/4221. I think it is a very
    similar recipe to the one I tried from the newspaper. I served it in the
    way that is suggested in the article, with salsa and sour cream and rolled
    in a tortilla, but next time I think I will just put it on a plate and put
    the sour cream and salsa on it, skipping the tortilla entirely.

    Brian,
    I am always looking for possibilities for veggie burgers and thanks for the
    suggestions. I have tried many concoctions over the years that they called
    "burgers" too. They qualify as "pattys", period, at best.

    The most satisfying of those called "burgers" were two that were in no way
    even constructed as burgers or pattys, but rather were a select assortment
    of veggies and seasonings cooked and placed on hamburger buns. Unforunately,
    one of these was unpopular enough at the La Place Rendezvous in Fort Frances
    ON that they replaced it with a "Boca" type piece of crap, with a
    consistency more like the hockey pucks on their giant-screen TVs, with
    apologees to the game of Hockey for the unfair comparison. The other one, at
    Grandma's, Virginia, MN is an Asian-type version, a collection of veggies
    with a teriaki flavor, on bun, and served with fresh fruit on the side -- a
    light, tasty one I only get to lunch on when I drive the hundred miles for
    something necessary. Objectively they are Veggie Sandwiches called
    "burgers",

    To me, carmelized fat makes a true burger what it is. My preferences are
    charcoal-type grilled with slices of raw onion, tomato and lettuce with
    mayo, or pan fried in a cast-iron skillet so there are lots of carmelized
    bits in the pan left, then frying the onions in that and deglazing it with
    ketchup that is used as sauce for the burger on the bun -- both go great
    with a melted slice of good cheese too, but optional.

    I agree that some of the burger recipes are called that because they choose
    to serve them on bread (I wouldn't call things rolled in tortillas "burgers"
    at all) and would be better served as simply an entree with all the sour
    creams, salsas, etc.

    I wil give your recipes a shot this week. Thanks

    I can't say for sure, but I think that whoever "invented" the first veggie
    burger wasn't going for something that tasted "like meat", but rather
    something that was the correct size and shape to put on what was available,
    either bread or a standard hamburger bun.

    Also a warning, though the "corn burger" is really good, I think it falls
    apart way too easily to be cooked on a standard grill, and I cooked it in a
    regular frying pan. Or I suppose you could cook it in a regular oven,
    though unless you have a toaster oven or something small like that, cooking
    it in a regular oven might be a bit wasteful.

    I am not certain if the same caveat applies to the "split-pea burger" as I
    have never tried cooking it on a grill. If you cook it in a toaster oven or
    something like that, the bread crumbs on the outside do not brown up as much
    as if it is cooked in a frying pan, though they still tate pretty good.

    Hmm..deglazing a pan with ketchup is something I never thought of, I would
    have thought ketchup is too thick, perhaps I will try that sometime.

    Well by the time you fry the meat then fry the onions in enough grease and
    leftover carmelized bits, there is enough juice remaining to make a nice
    sauce using a good shot of ketchup as you don't have to cook it very long in
    a hot pan and stirring-- with a cast-iron you'd want to take it off the
    heat. I learned this while camping -- if you like ketchup on a burger this
    is the way to go. A dash of Wourcester Sauce in there is tasty too and will
    thin it a bit if you need it.

    I agree they are a bit dry but I quite like the two you
    mentioned. They are improved by a spoonful or two of salsa.

    Just use a slice of tofu instead of a veggie burger then.
    Much cheaper, just as much nutrition value, and no way it will
    taste like meat.

    That's a good idea. Kind of low in protein, although
    mushroom protein does complement grain protein. (The
    combination can be lysine-complete.)

    Dress the mushroom burger with black bean salsa and some sliced avocado.

    I marinate my portabella mushrooms in garlic and balsamic vinegar for about
    2 minutes, grill place it on a crusty roll and add smoked mozzarella,
    tomato, basil, and lettuce. No need for any condiments because it's juicy
    as is. It makes a fabulous veggie burger.

    Amy's burgers are the best I have had. They beat Bocca burgers hands
    down.
