Vegan Burger Recipe

Hamburguesa Vegana

If you are thinking on making high protein vegan burgers, you have come to the right place, this recipe is not only delicious but also an excellent source of plant-based protein. You can even use the patties in other ways, not just as hamburger "meat". You can add it to any vegan dish for a high protein kick!

8 servings


  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 420g extra firm tofu, drained
  • 435g black beans, rinsed, well drained
  • ¼ cup of almond butter
  • ¼ cup of vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves finely grated
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 4 teaspoons of sea salt
  • 2 cups of cooked quinoa (preferably red or black)
  • ¼ cup flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Toasted bun, pickled onion, tomato, lettuce, cucumbers and chipotle vegan yogurt (to serve)


  1. Set the grill at medium-high heat. Clean and grease the grill. Shred the tofu using the large holes of a box grater. Firmly squeeze the tofu between paper towels to drain as much liquid as possible.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the tofu and beans, stirring occasionally, until the beans are slightly dry and their skins are dark, 10–12 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, beat almond butter and mayonnaise in medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in the garlic, cayenne pepper, and salt. Add the tofu and bean mixture and the cooked quinoa and stir well to combine.
  4. Mix the flaxseed and ¼ cup of cold water in a small bowl. Let stand until a thick paste forms, about 1 minute. Add to the tofu and bean mixture along with the cornstarch and stir well to combine.
  5. Using greased hands, shape the mixture into 8–10 patties, about ½ "thick (about ¾ cup each). Grill until lightly browned around edges, about 2 minutes. Turn carefully using a metal spatula to cleanly lift the rack and grill until slightly charred on the second side and heated, about 2 more minutes.
  6. Place the patties on the hamburger bun. To taste add pickled onions, tomato, lettuce, pickles and chipotle yogurt, etc. And enjoy your burger.

TIP: Vegetable Protein Burgers can be formed 3 days in advance. Wrap each one well in plastic wrap and let them cool.
