Veggie Burgers With Grilled Avocados

There is nothing better than grilled food. I wanted a savory veggie burger, but didn’t have any in the freezer. I thought “hmmm what would rachel ray do?” Well, she’d make her own from scratch! So that is what I did. I pulled out everything in the refrigerator and pantry that I though would work in a veggie burger. It ended up being a success and I can’t wait for you guys to try it! I plan on using the leftovers as a salad topper tomorrow.

  • 1 Can Chickpeas Rinsed and Drained
  • 2 Cups Fresh Spinach
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Red Onion
  • 1/3 Cup Ground Flax Seed
  • 1 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp Dill

Place all ingredients in electric mixer. Slowly mix ingredients together, gradually increase speed as they form into a thick “cookie dough” texture.

Heat Grill to 500 ( you can bake these or cook on stove too)

Spray a sheet of tin foil with olive oil cooking spray

For 9 patties with veggie burger batter.

Cook each side for 7-8 minutes. They should be lightly brown and soft like a hamburger, but have that grilled crunch on the outside.  I also grilled a couple avocado pieces to add to the top of the burger.

I added kale, onion and avocado to the top of my burger and yellow mustard as my dipping sauce.

I found these vegan buns at Whole Foods. They also sell them at Trader Joes.

I only had one veggie burger for lunch, so I froze the rest. I think they should be good for a couple weeks.

    I made these last night and they were so delicious! My boyfriend is a carnivore but he loved these too. This definitely makes the transition to eating more plant based easier! Thank you 🙂
