Vegan Burgers

This blog is now hosted at

Lets go back to basics shall we? Sometimes I spend so much time focusing on my main meal of the day (and my baked goodies) that I forget to mention the simpler meals that I make. I was talking yesterday with a friend (you know who you are!) who is thinking about trying a vegan lifestyle and it occurred to me that sometimes the easiest meals are the best ones, especially when you are just getting started so here is a look at my lunch today:

Vegan Burgers! We have a whole bunch of vegan patties out the back in the freezer just waiting for a lazy day dinner or a quick lunch. Sometime they are bought ones, sometimes we make them, there are loads of great recipes online if you want to go that way.. and next time I make my own I’ll be sure to add the recipe to the blog, but for this burger I just used whatever we had in the freezer. Depending on how much time you have you can add extra veggies, I love zucchini sliced thinly and fried off in some olive oil until it’s browned on both sides, and grilled red capsicum as well. Ahh, but I’m getting ahead of myself, here is my basic burger:

Vegan Burgers

Vegan patty of your choice, cooked according to directions
3 button mushrooms, sliced
Bread roll
1 Tomato, sliced
Fresh Basil
Salt and pepper to taste


Slice the burger bun in half and toast or grill it until brown, spread hummus on both toasted sides. In a small pan, fry your mushrooms in a little oil, place them on one side of the burger, top with sliced tomato and fresh basil leaves, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then add the beetroot and the burger patty. Put the top on and you’re all done.

If I’m having this for lunch I’ll have it as is, for dinner I usually serve it with salad and fries or chips. It’s a really simple meal that doesn’t take a lot of time, and it’s super delicious too.

      The Fry’s ones are my favourite I think, have you tried those?

      What brand are your toaster burgers? Might have to see if I can get them here.
