I just posted this request on the forums at 101 Cookbooks, but thought I’d throw it out to our readers with their enviable big brains.
Every time I’ve tried to make my own veggie burgers, they always come out mushy. This weekend I tried out a recipe for Black Bean Sweet Potato Burgers and although they tasted okay (albeit a little sweet), they were yet another beany mush fest. I want something that holds it shape, kinda like Boca Burgers or Morningstar Farms Black Bean Burgers (I hate to compare my desires to something that comes out of a box, but there you have it).
If you have any tips, I want to hear them! Post them in the comments! If you post a recipe, I promise I’ll try it. Maybe I’ll even turn this into an impromptu veggie burger recipe contest. What should the prize be? Beyond my endless gratitude? I’ll think that one over and get back to you.
In the meantime, help me master the mush! It’s grillin’ season and I need something that won’t fall threw the grill grates!
