Making your own veggie burgers is easy to do! These healthy patties are full of fresh vegetables and tasty spices. You could top them with ketchup, but we prefer a dollop of our homemade Peanut Sauce.

Yield: Serves 6.



  • 4 cups finely diced stale multigrain bread
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Hamburger buns
  • Peanut Sauce


  1. Combine bread, onion, pepper, celery, carrot and zucchini in a large bowl. Whisk together eggs, soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon pepper, ginger and salt and stir into vegetable mixture until moistened.
  2. Pat mixture firmly into 12 patties. Cook on a lightly greased griddle over medium heat on natural gas barbecue until brown on both sides. Turn patties carefully.
  3. Serve immediately on buns with Peanut Sauce.
