Vegetarian burgers unlike burgers made of meat are a healthy and substantial food. There are several ways to make a vegetarian burger and I will list the way I like mine made.

The first is a vegetarian burger recipe, for one, that not everyone will like because it has onions:

Ingredients:

1 small onion chopped fine 
1 very small or half of a medium size bell pepper (green, red, yellow does not matter) 
1 small shredded carrot 
1 cup of cooked dark beans (drained can of kidney beans is fine) 
salt and pepper to taste.

Procedure: Place chopped onions, peppers and shredded carrots into a bowl and add the beans. Mash all of the ingredients together thoroughly. The beans will act as the base for the burger keeping all of the other ingredients together. Form into a burger. Dip the formed burger first into milk (vegans use soy milk) then into either cracker, corn flake or bread crumbs. In a skillet heat about one tablespoon of olive oil. Place the burger into the olive oil to fry. Brown it on both sides and serve on a bun with a slice of tomato and some lettuce. If you love onions place a thin slice of onion on it too. You can serve this with any kind of side dish you like along with a slice of pickle.

The second is a vegetarian burger recipe for one that is a little different and is not for the onion lover.

Ingredients:

1 very small or half of a medium size bell pepper chopped finely (green, red, yellow does not matter), 
1 small shredded carrot, 
1 small tomato diced 
1 cup of cooked brown or white rice 
salt and pepper to taste.

Procedure: Place the chopped pepper, shredded carrot and diced tomato into a bowl and add the 1 cup of cooked rice. Mash all of the ingredients together until firm and form into a burger. Fry in skillet with one tablespoon of olive oil. If you choose you may dip the burger into some milk (vegans use soy milk) and then into cracker crumbs corn flake or bread crumbs before you fry it but it is not necessary because the rice will brown. Serve on a bun with a slice of tomato and some lettuce. You may use any side dish you like with this burger along with slices of bread and butter pickles.

I use carrots to make this vegetarian burger recipe juicier. Although in these there is something about the carrot that makes the burger tastier. For variations on these recipes add other ingredients such as mushrooms, cooked mashed pumpkin or butternut squash or any other veggie that you enjoy. A variation of these recipes makes for a much more enjoyable burger each time you make it and eat it.

The rice or beans in these recipes take the place of meat and add substance to the burger. The beans in this recipe is lower in calories but the rice is easier to form and cooks up more solidly thereby, making the consistency of these two burgers a little different. These recipes contain not only healthy ingredients but they are tasty too. Try both of these vegetarian burger recipes and choose your own favorite.
