Or just leave the cottage cheese out and see what happens?

Thanks Tdrinker! You're right that the egg and cottage cheese does kinda throw me. I'm pretty sure I could use some ground flax seed to replace the egg, but the only thing that I can think of to replace the cottage cheese is tofu (and I hate tofu). Maybe someone else here could suggest something.

But I do thank you for the recipe and have been enjoying your posts here!

I tried this recipe today and quite enjoyed the result. I did make a minor modification, as I had quick quinoa flakes, and no quick oats. It was delicious! Perfect timing for me, also, as I was looking for a new black bean burger recipe. Thank you.

Uh... there is also an egg in the recipe... i guess it won't be for you. But, i'll post it once i've typed it up anyhow and you can see if you can replace that too...

Yes, TeaD, I'd like to see it. I'm basically a vegan, so I'd have to find some replacement for the cottage cheese, but I'm sure there is one. (Tofu would work, but I hate tofu...but I'm sure there must be some other ingredient I could use.)

Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme.

ASPIRINGVEGAN: The amount of oats should be the same i think. You can probably also use quinoa or wheatgerm or anything else that binds.

GENTLEVIKING: No, not likely to stop eating veggie burgers anytime soon! :-) Just made one with cottage cheese and kidneybeans...want to see it? (Have to type it up first!)

Thanks for the info, I am a bit concerned about the chemicals in the processed veggie burgers, I understand that they are hazaderous to your health. Fortunately Amy's is on the "Good for you list".

And back to the prepared burgers - I've liked the taste of Amy's Bistro burgers. Says it's dairy free, and I can't find any non-Vegan ingredients.

I also would think the steel cut oats would have to be "pre-cooked" before you could use them (since they take 40 minutes to cook on the stove!)

Funny note: everytime I see this post---My latest veggie burger recipe--I always make the mistake of reading it as saying "My LAST veggie burger recipe" and I think, "What??? Is she going back to eating meat burgers or something???" LOL!!!

I think you could use the same amount, but you would probably need to parboil the steel cut oats a bit: I wouldn't trust them to soften enough in the absence of more moisture. I did use old-fashioned rolled oats with no trouble, because I didn't have instant.

Anyone have a good recipe for beet burgers? I had some fantastic ones at a restaurant, but haven't been able to recreate them!

For anyone who's made these: If I substituted steel cut oats for the instant oats (which I don't have), do you have a feel for whether the amount should stay the same or be altered upward or down? Thanks!

I also dislike the cardboard Boca & Morningstar burgers. Yucky tastes!

Trader Joe's has a nice veggie alternative that I've tried a few times.

Even easier than the black bean burgers, as they cook faster, you can make a similar recipe using lentils. I *love* homemade lentil or black bean burgers!

"And Boca is "cardboard, rat bait" to me."

Oh Ruth, you are just TOO cruel! LOL!!!! emoticon

And come to think of it, they are pretty much like that! I occasionally will buy those veggie burgers if pressed for time, but you are so right about how much better homemade taste than store bought!

I do prefer the "texture" of store bought to homemade (more like a burger), because my homemade ones usually have a soft texture (and real burgers tend to have a kind of "course" texture) ...that's been my only complaint with homemade veggie burgers--the texture is not usually true to a real burger. But it's really not that big of a deal if it has a good taste, and homemade usually does have a much better taste.

Hi CENOLA,

MorningStarFarms are just barely above Boca in my book. And Boca is "cardboard, rat bait" to me. I am thankful for the homemade recipes I find here. But, I learned to cook at 5 years old and am now 58. Home cooking comes natural to me. I like to know EXACTLY what goes in my food and my body.

Thanks for the recipe, it looks really good.
Any ideas for what I could use instead of tomatoes?
My son has neurodermitis and shouldn't eat tomato...
Maybe zucchini?

Planning on making them soon. Have you tried freezing them? I would loke to make lots and wrap them individually in saran wrap and freeze them. Then they are there on a busy day when you don't have energy to cook!!!!!!
