Just because you don’t eat meat doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a burger. Unfortunately lots of store-bought veggie burgers contains gluten. Here is a vegan dish that carries a whole lot of spice!
In episode 11 of Gluten Free Tasty, host Phoebe Lapine demonstrates how to make some curried veggie burgers with all the taste and none of the gluten. These veggie patties are loaded with an assortment of vegetables ranging from chickpeas to zucchini and quinoa. This a great recipe for summer cookouts with the family especially if your family members are vegan and prefer to not eat gluten.
- Olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 clove garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- 1 medium zucchini, coarsely grated or julienned
- Sea salt
- One 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- One 15-ounce can lentils, rinsed and drained
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over a medium-high flame. Saute the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, curry powder, turmeric, zucchini, and ½ teaspoon salt. Continue to saute until the zucchini is soft, another 3 minutes. Set aside. Meanwhile, in a medium food processor, pulse the chickpeas, lentils, Dijon, lime juice, cilantro, and ½ teaspoon salt until coarsely pureed. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the lentil mixture, quinoa, and zucchini mixture. Taste for seasoning and add more salt as necessary. Form the mixture into heaping ½ cup sized patties. Arrange on a plate and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, or overnight. In a large non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat. Cook the veggie burgers, flattening them with the back of your spatula on the first side, for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until nicely browned. Remove to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Then serve open-faced or inside burger buns. Serves 4

00:00.000 --> 00:03.462
00:03.462 --> 00:06.897
Today, I'm gonna be showing you how to
make a great vegetarian alternative to
00:06.897 --> 00:08.160
00:08.160 --> 00:12.810
Hi there, and welcome to Gluten-Free
00:12.810 --> 00:17.290
Today, I'm going to show you how to make
some delicious Curried Veggie Burgers.
00:17.290 --> 00:19.640
Just a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.
00:21.890 --> 00:24.050
And then this is just one medium red
00:24.050 --> 00:27.790
The problem with a lot of store-bought
veggie burgers is
00:27.790 --> 00:30.650
that they're actually made of wheat,
00:31.990 --> 00:36.035
And that's no good for those of us who are
looking to eat a little bit less meat and
00:36.035 --> 00:39.380
also keep to our gluten-free diet.
00:39.380 --> 00:42.518
So my onions are nice and translucent,
just starting to brown,
00:42.518 --> 00:48.470
and so I'm gonna add in my squash.
00:48.470 --> 00:52.560
And you can use zucchini for this too, and
that's gonna kinda melt away inside
00:52.560 --> 00:57.000
the burgers and create, you know, just a
really nutritious patty.
00:57.000 --> 01:00.480
I have here some curry powder with a
little salt and
01:00.480 --> 01:04.740
turmeric, and then just a little bit of
01:04.740 --> 01:08.520
Whenever you're adding spices to a dish,
it's great to do so
01:08.520 --> 01:10.530
before there's any liquid in the pan so
01:10.530 --> 01:14.320
you can get them in contact with the
surface area and toast them up.
01:14.320 --> 01:16.639
And that's really gonna invigorate their
01:18.070 --> 01:20.210
So, we're just sauteing this for a couple
01:20.210 --> 01:23.940
And we just want the squash to cook
through, so it's soft.
01:23.940 --> 01:27.400
So this is basically gonna be the flavor
profile of my burgers.
01:28.640 --> 01:32.020
But now I'm gonna get to the meat.
01:32.020 --> 01:37.260
So I have my lentils, my chickpeas, and a
01:37.260 --> 01:42.391
To give it that nice beautiful brightness.
01:42.391 --> 01:46.232
[NOISE] You want just a nice coarse puree.
01:46.232 --> 01:48.210
You don't want it totally smooth.
01:48.210 --> 01:51.650
And so a last couple of flavor things.
01:51.650 --> 01:54.970
A little lime juice, and a little bit of
Dijon mustard which is
01:54.970 --> 01:59.175
also going to act as a binder and hold our
whole burger together.
01:59.175 --> 02:07.461
[NOISE] So now, I'm just going to mix all
of my fillings together.
02:07.461 --> 02:10.570
We've got our curried squash mixture.
02:10.570 --> 02:13.300
And then we've got our quinoa, which I
didn't puree in here,
02:13.300 --> 02:15.840
because you kind of want it to hold that
02:15.840 --> 02:19.670
And that's going to give the patties some
02:19.670 --> 02:22.815
And then I have my lentil chickpeas.
02:27.020 --> 02:32.430
Mix it all together, love the yellow color
of that squash.
02:34.710 --> 02:38.343
So depending on how many people you're
making this for,
02:38.343 --> 02:41.459
you want about you know, three or four
02:45.620 --> 02:48.656
I like to make these nice and thin so
02:48.656 --> 02:52.756
that they cook up and get a bit firm and
02:52.756 --> 03:01.056
03:01.056 --> 03:03.425
The key to having these burgers hold
03:03.425 --> 03:06.599
not fall apart in the pan is that I'm
gonna pop the in the fridge and
03:06.599 --> 03:10.316
just let them hang out for about ten
minutes to let the whole thing solidify.
03:10.316 --> 03:13.862
03:13.862 --> 03:19.360
So I'm just gonna get my pan really hot so
I can get a good sear on my burgers.
03:19.360 --> 03:22.490
Now, just about a tablespoon of oil in
03:22.490 --> 03:24.300
You don't want too much.
03:24.300 --> 03:28.260
One pattie down at a time.
03:28.260 --> 03:30.250
That's a good sizzle sound.
03:30.250 --> 03:31.130
Just what you want.
03:34.690 --> 03:36.135
Just gonna do three at a time.
03:36.135 --> 03:40.659
[SOUND] These are looking like they're
nicely browned on one side, so
03:40.659 --> 03:42.848
I'm just gonna give them a flip.
03:42.848 --> 03:45.895
You can push them down a little bit.
03:45.895 --> 03:48.562
[SOUND] All right.
03:48.562 --> 03:51.500
That's a nice, beautiful color on there.
03:51.500 --> 03:53.300
Just like a real burger,
03:53.300 --> 03:57.050
you wanna make sure they get that
caramelization on the top.
03:57.050 --> 04:01.520
Alright lets get these off and onto our
04:01.520 --> 04:06.560
They're still a little bit soft so you
just want to be kind of gentle with them.
04:09.830 --> 04:10.880
04:10.880 --> 04:14.370
Now I'm just gonna pop these into the oven
for about ten minutes or
04:14.370 --> 04:16.900
so, just until they're nice and kind of
crisp all over.
04:19.630 --> 04:21.310
04:21.310 --> 04:25.500
I am going to dig into one of these
04:25.500 --> 04:28.350
And if, you know,
04:28.350 --> 04:32.400
you have a gluten-free bun of choice, feel
free to eat it on that.
04:32.400 --> 04:33.980
But I think they're so flavorful.
04:33.980 --> 04:38.382
I'll just serve them on a nice piece of
lettuce, maybe with some slaw on top,
04:38.382 --> 04:41.866
some sort of yummy condiment or just
plain, like right now.
04:41.866 --> 04:45.828
04:45.828 --> 04:51.980
All right, mm.
04:51.980 --> 04:53.120
04:53.120 --> 04:56.450
which is important whenever you're doing
something without meat.
04:56.450 --> 04:59.060
I love it.
The chickpeas are still partially left
04:59.060 --> 05:01.480
intact, so you get all that nice texture.
05:01.480 --> 05:06.280
And it's just, you know, a super delicious
Gluten-free Curry Veggie Burger.
