Veggie burgers are not without their problems. Most veggie burgers found in the freezer section of the grocery store are not vegan, and those that are vegan tend to be quite pricey and they aren't always tasty. Some of us have tried our hand at homemade veggie burgers to varying success. The greatest problem plaguing the homemade veggie burger is stability, aka they crumble, therefore making them not suitable BBQ fodder. Not to mention that they often just taste very... uhh... homemade.
Vegan culinary goddess Dreena Burton has forever solved my homemade veggie burger woes with her Mushroom Pecan Burgers! I made them exactly as she instructed and they were perfect! Held together amazingly well (though I might grill them from frozen if I were taking them to a BBQ), and they were mega tasty. I thought that they were a bit like a yummier version of a Lick's Nature Burger (which I do recommend if you're in a pinch). My only complaint is that they are too big and too filling!! Dreena recommends making 6 patties, which I did. Next time I'll be making them into 7 or 8 patties, because I like to have room for side dishes or dessert. Four hours after dinner and I still feel stuffed.
