Veggie Burger Tips To Keep The Burger From Falling Apart

Make sure you use a food processor to prep the oats and chickpeas that helps to keep the burgers together along with its fantastic texture.

Eggs help veggie burgers hold together due to the saturated fats. For an eggless burger, use a different type of binder.

I personally love using a vegan egg for this recipe. I was elated when I found this product! It taste like real eggs and its the best vegan egg product on the marketplace!

You may also make a flax egg by combining 1 Tbs. ground flax seed and 3 Tbs. warm water and letting it sit until it gels. You can also make this type of egg replacement with chia seeds or psyllium husks.

Agar agar gets gelatinous when mixed with an equal amount of water. You can also create a binder by combining cornstarch, tapioca starch or arrowroot powder with warm water.

Additional Tips

Keep the jalapeño it adds a kick to the recipe! Do not eliminate it!

Try different ingredients, such as black bean or corn.

If you prefer to bake versus pan fry, bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

Thinner patties versus thick patties are best to create more crunch and crisp to the burger. Enjoy!
