Hi PPK, do you have a go-to burger recipe for the skeptical omni? I'm trying to come up/find a recipe I can make a batch of for quick weeknight dinners, and something that isn't a bean burger per se or a portabella burger. We make and like those but I'm looking for a meaty-ish, all purpose burger that will replace having to buy something like Bocas, and I think getting the right firm texture is the element eluding me... The closest I've made has been the All-American burger from Best Veggie Burgers. Any winners in your arsenal?

Does it have to be Boca-like or can it have rice and a few veg in it (kinda like a cross between GardenBurger and Boca)?

ooh, the beet burger is a good suggestion! Thanks!

And it can totally have beans or rice or veggies, whatever. I am just trying to get a texture thst would be closest to a burger or a boca/gardenburger type. A lot of the recipes I have tried or experimented with are on the mushy side....

I've had excellent luck with the Double Double burgers from Chloe's Kitchen. My omni partner actually loved these, and he's a huge burger kind of person. They don't taste like meat at all (they certainly won't trick anyone), but they do hold together better than a lot of other veggie burgers. I always make them using the brown rice option, rather than tempeh.

Thanks Bodhi. I just looked up that recipe and will for sure give it a whirl - I'm surprised at how "real" they look....

I just tried the Greek burgers from Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day, and I think they might be the best burger, purchased or homemade, I've ever eaten. The flavor profile could probably be changed up if you didn't want to go Greek.

Just wanted to report back that the double double burgers were a success! Once we've eaten our way through this batch I think I'll try the beet burgers...

I'm still in love with the VwaV burgers. I haven't tried a ton of other recipes (I'll try Chloe's one of these days and prolly some others), but I do stray occasionally and keep coming back to the VwaV veggie burger recipe. I just made a batch on Monday to freeze for an upcoming BBQ.

They're my favourite too!

I don't have VWAV and now you are tempting me! But I'm trying to stay strong with the cookbook buying since my amazon account practically screams "you are out of control, woman." However, I'm sure the recipe is out there in interwebz land somewhere since VWAV is a bit older... Is it lentil based or purely veggie based? Just curious.

It has veggies and TVP among other things. (There is a copy of the recipe here.)
