How to Cook a Vegan Burger
Each of these recipes are different and will offer different ways of cooking. There are three main ways to cook a burger.
In the oven. All burger recipes can be cooked in the oven. This is the easiest and cleanest option although there is a lacking smoky taste.
Electric Grill. Electric grills are great for the winter months when it’s too cold to grill outside. They provide a charred crispy grill taste to remind you of summer while bringing out all the flavors of the patties. Electric grills are also a great alternative to softer burgers that might fall apart on an outdoor grill.
Outdoor Grill. For recipes with stronger patties that hold together well, outdoor grilling is a great option. It offers the charred smoky taste while allowing you to do one of summers greatest activities: cook outdoors.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can these recipes be made in advance?
In almost all cases, yes! Homemade patties can be made up to 2 months in advance. Once the patties are shaped, freeze the patties on a single layer. Once the patties are frozen all the way through, transfer them to an airtight container or Ziplock bag and freeze them.
- If you are cooking in the oven, you can bake them directly from the freezer.
- If you are cooking on a grill, thaw the burgers first by placing them in the refrigerator the night before or submerging them in warm water for 1 hour before grilling.
Are these recipes gluten-free?
Most of these recipes are gluten-free and all of them are gluten-free adaptable! Just use gluten-free bread flour and serve these burgers a gluten-free bun.
