Veggie Burgers with Asian Slaw

Jump to Recipe

So I have been thinking about what to cook for my very first post and I decided, that it doesn’t matter what I cook. Mainly because if I’m lucky and I mean very lucky, there will be two people that will read this.

I’m creating some Asian inspired Veggie burger with a slaw. Veggie burger, you say? As much as I love a good ol‘ fashioned beef burger, I think veggie burgers are so under-rated. I’m going to give you my favourite recipe for this veggie burger, but you can get as creative as you like. Asia is a massive continent, so you will have so many ingredients at your disposal. Endless variations!

Make Japanese style veggie burgers buy using sake, mirin or miso paste. Thai inspired veggie burgers with lemongrass and red curry paste or even veggie burgers with one of India’s favourite spice mixes, Garam Masala. (More on how to make your own Garam Masala later)

So here it is, my pioneer post. Epic Asian inspired veggie burgers.

If anyone makes this or even just reads this, leave a comment below.

Bon appetite

  1. Put all the ingredients for the veggie patties in a food processor

2. Pulse until it all comes together

3. Form into a burger the same size as your bun

4. Shallow fry at a medium heat until golden brown. Be careful not to burn.

5. Mix all the ingredients for the slaw dressing, then add it to the rest of the slaw ingredients.

6. Time to assemble your burger. I like to lightly toast my buns but that it entirely up to you. Spread with mayo and sriracha, add the pattie and top with slaw.

Now this was a damn good tasting veggie burger.
