Greatest American Veggie Burger

Great American Veggie Burger Perfect for the Grill!


Super simple vegan burger that my “meat and potatoes” hubby calls “AMAZING!” Trust me, Daiya’s new cheddar slices top this vegan burger off with perfection; the icing on the cake! This recipe makes 2 larger patties; I tend to shape my patties according to my bun size.
What a perfect recipes to try out Daiya new cheddar style slices on. Daiya Foods was so awesome to post my recipe on their site. By the way, this is a super easy vegan recipe!

Great American Vegan Burger starring Daiya Cheddar Style Slices


  • 1 can organic red kidney beans (rinsed)
  • 2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (pink himalayan salt preferred )
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt (Lawry's Seasoned Salt)
  • 1/4 cup organic all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts (crushed)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 Package Daiya Cheddar Style Slices
  • sesame seed hamburger buns


Step 1
Time to get out your food processor out! Throw in the beans, flour, walnuts, garlic, and seasonings.
Step 2
Mix on a puree setting till it looks like a reddish dough.
Step 3
Grab hunks of the mixture and form each one into a burger patty.
Step 4
Oil up a saucepan with walnut oil or an oil you prefer. Sprinkle some salt in the pan. On medium heat, fry the bean patties till they are golden brown on each side. Then add a slice or two on top of each patty and cook till melted. If you want to rush the melting, put a "little" water on the saucepan top. Pour the water in the pan off to the side to cause steam, then cover. It will melt beautifully quick!
If it’s not too cold out for you, this is a fantastic recipe to put out on the grill! Please let me know if you try it! Love and Gratitude!

I made this for dinner tonight. Super easy recipe, made a beautiful dough and a flawless looking patty. Taste was classic and good, nothing flashy just a mellow tasting patty. It was great accompanied by veggie cheese and all the fixings. I'll be making these again soon. Thanks for the recipe!
