The combination of quinoa and tofu gives great results.
  1. The first thing will be to chop the onion into small pieces, which we will put together in a preheated pan with olive oil with the mushrooms. While these two ingredients are frying, add the tofu and let it cook until it has lost all the water.

  2. In a separate bowl, crush the chickpeas with whatever we have best and add the sauce. In turn, add the sliced black olives and all the spices. To have consistency, we include breadcrumbs until the dough is ready and suitable for molding.

  3. We will proceed to start shaping our dough with portions of around 150-200 grams.

  4. With a hot pan with oil or butter, we will place our hamburger dough to cook. We will leave them about 5 minutes on each side so that they are toasted.

And ready. Now it only remains to serve with other ingredients of our preference, but that are equally vegan.

Quinoa and spinach vegan burgers

If we talk about very green burgers, this option is one of them, especially because of the spine. In addition, together with quinoa, they make it a very iron-rich food. For about 6 servings, you will need the following ingredients:

  1. 200 grams cooked lentils.

  2. 100 grams of quinoa.

  3. 300 grams of spinach.

  4. 2 carrots.

  5. 1 clove garlic.

  6. Bread crumbs.

  7. Salt.

This particular vegan burger recipe also calls for a vegan cheese, for which you must have the following:

  1. Half a glass of cashews.

  2. 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.

  3. 2 tablespoons of brewer's yeast.

  4. Water.

The preparation is a little more complicated than the previous recipe, but the results will be to your liking for the palate. So that:

  1. For the cheese, we will leave the cashews in water for approximately 2 hours so that they can soften. Then, we drain them and grind them together with the lemon juice and the brewer's yeast. In the process, we will add water until we have a firm cream without lumps.

  2. We take the quinoa and the spinach and we will cook them in two different pots. When they are ready, it is important that they are squeezed to remove excess water.

  3. In a preheated pan with olive oil, fry the carrots together with the garlic clove.

  4. In a separate container, we will combine the quinoa, the lentils, the spinach and the carrot and garlic sauce. In order to make a compact mass, we will add breadcrumbs until it gains consistency. Also, we will season with salt.

  5. Now we just have to shape the vegan burger dough and cook them in a pan until they are toasted on both sides.

    Quinoa and spinach vegan burgers are a great source of iron.

Once we have our burgers ready, we will add it to the bread together with the vegan cheese that we prepared previously.

Lentil burgers are a great option.

On the other hand, we must keep in mind that lentils are an essential food in a vegan or vegetarian diet. It is mainly due to the large amount of nutrients it provides, being also a great source of vegetable protein.

To prepare lentil burgers you will have to have the following ingredients on hand:

  1. 200 grams of cooked lentils.

  2. 1 onion.

  3. 1 clove garlic.

  4. 2 tablespoons of concentrated tomato puree.

  5. 1 teaspoon of cumin powder.

  6. 1 pinch of salt.

  7. 1 pinch of black pepper.

  8. 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

  9. 4 tablespoons of wholemeal flour or breadcrumbs.

  10. 1 carrot (optional).

  11. 1 stick of celery (optional).

Its preparation is really simple, and it is one of the reasons why they are such coveted hamburgers.

  1. The first thing will be to chop the onion into small pieces along with the garlic. In case you use celery and carrot, they should be cut in the same way. We will add all this to a preheated pan with olive oil to make a sauce.

  2. In a separate bowl, we will place the cooked and previously washed lentils together with the fried onion, garlic, celery and carrot. In turn, we will add the tomato puree together with the spices and mix.

  3. After correctly integrating the ingredients, we will add the wholemeal flour or breadcrumbs so that the dough gains firmness.

  4. The last step will be to form the hamburgers with our hands and cook them in a pan over medium heat with oil. Or, failing that, you can also choose to make them in an oven. Either way is fine.

Once we have our vegan lentil burgers ready, we will accompany them with other ingredients of our choice. It could well be some garlic potatoes or fried peppers, or any other element that is exclusively vegan.
