0 Vegetarian burgers and patties recipe

Chef has been so excited to post this recipe it truly is so delicious and very addictive.

We really enjoyed eating these vegetarian burgers for our dinner, the burgers really are packed with flavour, even if you are not a vegetarian I can guarantee that you will not miss any meat when you eat this meal.

You can either griddle/pan fry the mix into vegetarian patties that have a more softer texture and flavour or you can cook the mix in your oven for vegetarian burgers.

Chef has made both versions of the vegan burger today to show you the difference between the two.

You can eat the burgers on a lovely bread roll with a dressing of your choice and salad.


2 Cups Buckwheat
1 Cup Green split peas
1 Red pepper/capsicum (diced very small)
1 medium Onion (diced very small)
2 Carrots (diced very small)
1 Green Chilli (de-seeded + diced finely)
4-5 Small Garlic Cloves + 2Inch Fresh Ginger (chopped + blended together with a drop of water)
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1/2 tsp Ground cumin
1/2 tsp Ground coriander
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1/4 tsp Garam masala
1/4 tsp Paprika
Ground black pepper
Ground ground oats

How to make vegetarian burgers/ patties

First cook the carrots in some water until soft.

Rinse the buck wheat, bring to the boil in salted water then simmer for 5-6 minutes or until the buckhwheat has gone soft and swells - drain and leave to the side.

Rinse the split peas, put the peas into the pressure cooker with some water, bring to the boil then turn heat right down and cook for 7-10 minutes - drain and again leave to the side.

Split Peas

Put the oil in a pan with the onions and fry for a few minutes, you do not want to brown the onions and fully cook them, you want the onions slightly cooked so they do not have that raw onion taste.

Turn the heat right down then add the garlic/ginger and all the powdered spices apart from paprika and black pepper - turn off the heat.

Blend/grind up the split peas and 3/4 of your buckwheat.

Place into a bowl add some salt and black pepper to season, mix well.

Stir the green chillis, carrots and diced red pepper/capsicum into the spiced onion.

Mix well then add to the bowl of buckwheat and mix well again.

Add the rest of the buckwheat, mix well.

Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge now for approx 20-30 minutes, longer if you like.

Put some ground oats into a bowl.

Take some of the vegetarian burger mix into your hands and shape into patties.

Place the patties gently into the ground oats then turn and coat them on the other side.

For the softer textured vegetarian pattie, place on a lightly greased griddle/frying pan.

Let the burgers cook for a few minutes before you try to turn them over.

You can shape the patties with a spatula as you cook them.

Cook until browned on both sides.

To make your vegetarian burgers heat up your oven to 200C.

Lightly grease a baking tray.

You can make the pattie shapes or make the mix into round shaped balls for the oven - either way both will turn into burgers in the oven in the same way so do which ever you find easiest.

Chef made both balls and pattie shapes.

After 10-15 minutes the burgers will all look the same, they will have cooked almost like cookies look.

Turn the burgers over then place back in the oven for 5 minutes or until browned a little more.

The vegetarian buckwheat burgers are ready to eat.

Serve on bread, with salad or just as they are.

We ate our vegetarian burgers with a beetroot salad.

The burgers are simply delicious no matter how you eat them.
