Sometimes eating Healthy does taste better, just try a Baked Homemade Veggie Burger. Carrots, Celery, Zucchini, and spices make this a perfect alternative to a regular burger.
We love burgers! Who doesn’t? But as my youngest daughter reminds me “Ma let’s do something veggie”. So needless to say we decided to give a Veggie Burger a try.
We love our Tuna Burgers and our Italian Stuffed Burgers so now it’s time for a Baked Homemade Veggie Burger.We wanted to make a burger without the usual black beans or humus more of our favourite raw veggies instead.
Baked Homemade Veggie Burger
So I shredded a carrot, zucchini, potato and half a celery stalk, I mixed them all together and really squeezed it well to remove as much excess moisture as possible. I then mixed in some spices, an egg and some flour. Formed them into a patty shape, we then baked them for approximately 20 minutes. I turned them halfway so they would brown on both sides.
Veggie Burgers make the perfect light meal serve them with a tossed salad with or without a bun. Pretty good too if you add a little bit of mayo on the bun. Plus they are so fast and easy, what more can you ask for? Seems to me it would make a yummy summer meal also. Buon Appetito!
