Veggie Burgers // Recipe Video

So it took me a little longer to edit this video than I thought it would, so it’s going up a day late. Hope everyone enjoys.

This recipe is a combination of two of my favorite burger recipes. My goal was to create a burger that had my favorite aspects of both recipes, while also simplifying some of the ingredients and steps. Those recipes can be found here:

This recipe made about 10 big burgers. If making these for food prep, bake them before freezing and then thaw and recook however you like.


1 1/2 pounds button mushrooms
1/2 pound eggplant, in one inch cubes
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 large onion, chopped fine (about a cup)
1 large celery rib, chopped fine (about 1/2 cup)
1 medium clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup dry pearl barley
1 cup walnuts
1 tbsp chili powder, cumin powder, and smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt and pepper, more for cooking
1 (14-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and patted dry on paper towels
1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp soy sauce
1.5 cups bread crumbs
1/8 cup barbecue sauce


Preheat oven to 350 F
Put mushrooms and eggplant on tray and mix with 1 Tbsp olive oil and salt and pepper to taste and cook for 45 minutes
While mushrooms and eggplants are cooking, cover barley or rice with water in a pot and boil until tender
Cook celery and onions in a pan until tender, not brown
Turn off the heat, and stir in minced garlic, set aside in large mixing bowl. Add barley when cooked
In same pan, warm walnuts until fragrant and just starting to darken
Remove mushrooms from oven and let cool
Add walnuts to food processor with coconut sugar, smoked paprika, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper
Blend into a fine powder, and add to the bowl with the barley
Add mushrooms and eggplant into food processor and pulse 8 – 10 times (you may need to do this in batches). Add to bowl
Add half can of garbanzo beans into processor with soy sauce, flour, and chia seeds. Blend into a smooth paste. Add to bowl
Pulse rest of the garbanzo beans 5 – 6 times. Add to bowl
Add breadcrumbs and barbecue sauce to mixture. Mix thoroughly
If mixture is too wet add more breadcrumbs, if it is too dry or crumbly, add more BBQ
Cook in oven at 350 F for 20 minutes, flipping once; pan fry, or toss on the grill and cook until darken the outside and cooked through
Add to a sandwich with all your favorite fixings!

  9. It's so much fun to see you cooking healthy food in a beautiful kitchen. I started watching you and Alyse when you were both living in the van and food prep often consisted of taking seeds out of a papaya in a parking lot. Love the way you guys embrace everything in life….embracing a thousand things.

  10. I want to know how to make nut butter. My husband and I are considering going vegan for health reason, but I’d have to figure out if there are enough things I can eat.
